FURNITURE OF MY IMAGINATION



Artist Moving Image | 16mm | 4:3


A study of solitude as a medicinal melancholy, a necessary and positive method for introspection and reflection as well as home to one’s own despairing and weighted thoughts of mortality. Focussing on my own father, the images were born from our relationship with this state of being. The city of Coventry’s culture, history and concrete landscape’s impact on my persona also plays its part.

The film was made in response to 18th Century diary excerpts provided by Warwick University based researcher Dr Naomi Pullin. The title was taken from a poem by diarist Gertrude Saville.
