Ayscoughfee Hall Exhibiiton

The Since Sliced Bread solo exhibition at Ayscoughfee Hall Museum is the culmination of this immersive year of artistic research into the Windmills and communities of Lincolnshire. This fresh body of work presents a unique way of looking at our relationship with the ‘Field to Fork’ journey.

Works include a field of hand made white windmills placed in an enigmatic grid, reflecting on the unsung roles of Millers and farmers, in our lives throughout history. The field adopts the standard layout of WW1 cemeteries in France. They are redundant, trapped in a windless Medieval brick Undercroft.  A community ‘garden of wisdom’ and other pieces appropriate cupboards and nooks and crannies to infiltrate the architecture of Ayscoughfee Hall.

The exhibition runs from October 8th to December 14th, 2014.
Wednesday – Sunday between 10.30am and 4pm.
Admission is free.

The preview of the exhibition is on Wednesday October 8th from 6-8pm, this will include an artist’s ‘walk and talk’ at 6.15pm and 7.15pm.
For tickets to the preview,  please contact Ayscoughfee Hall Tel: 01775 764555 or email

As a conceptually and philosophically driven visual artist, I work with different media including text, flour, installation, film and print. My work can be playful in the way that it explores the everyday relationships between language and thought. I try to make sense of how language and text can form our belief systems, change perspectives, cover up or displace reality or reveal the truth.
