A video as part of an ongoing installation using shredded paper. In this video I am looking at my experience of boarding school through reading my old school reports, shredding them, and then making them into a hanging sculpture.

Dance Artist, Gerry Turvey was in residence at IOU Studio as part of IOU’s professional development programme Space:Time:Tools:Advice, with film maker June Gersten Roberts and visual artist Roger Bygott as part of her Body Stories project. She is developing a performance through the threading and weaving of different art forms that will map the physical journey of her body, and acknowledge how injury and physical trauma has affected her life journey.
A sharing of work in progress took place at IOU Studio on Thursday 15 August at 6pm to a good reception.
The final installation and performance will be shown in November 2013 at Huddersfield Art Gallery.
