Ellie Doney is an artist whose practice investigates and interprets the cultural status and value of found materials. Doney will bring her years of experience working at the UCL Institute of Making to the residency, articulating the material history of the Phytology site.
Doney’s 2017 residency will focus on the properties of the item rather than the object history, transforming the artist residency-hut into an experimental museum, an entryway to a modern interpretation of the local area.
Over the summer months Doney will lead a series of public ‘archaeological digs‘ – excavating, analysing & archiving found materials.
More information on the excavation workshops can be found here.
