Leaving is Necessary

(2015) Single channel film, looped.

A film about progression. This work details a range of separate interactions with a venue in anticipation of its closure. The Caldewgate building had been a school and, in later years, the Fine Art campus of the University of Cumbria. This film collates and re-frames stories, myths and nostalgic meditations; merging language and reflection to create new, fabricated histories that reference the building and its previous inhabitants over a series of 50 years.
