Trish Morrissey: A Certain Slant of Light

Sat, 18th Nov, 2017 to Sun, 25th Feb, 2018

Trish Morrissey works with photography, film and video. As Hestercombe’s 2017 Artist in residence, she has made a major new body of work about the lives of Miss Warre (1790 – 1872) and Mrs Portman (1854 – 1951), women who at different times in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries ran the Hestercombe estate. Drawing on sources from the Hestercombe archive, Morrissey’s new work also explores themes of class, gender and role play, body and gesture, the language of photography, and the relation between public and private.
