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.
This exhibition will be the first presentation of two films and two series of photographs made by Morrissey in and around Hestercombe during 2017, shown alongside some of the archival material that inspired them.
Location: Hestercombe Gallery, 11am – 4pm every day.
