Jessy Layne Tuddenham ON DISPLAY – March 2022

Let’s start with one of the fruits of my residency labor … a trailer:

My aim for the ON DISPLAY residency was first, to have a solid trailer and second, a full length cut of my solo. I managed both and it proved to be simultaneously very demanding and incredibly rewarding. In reflecting on the residency, I can not separate the creative work from the political context of the time in which occurred. Coming soon then, is an account of my ON DISPLAY residency, not so much oriented around me and my work as around the privilege of being able to make work when the pressure of the wider world is impossible to ignore.
