An exciting new project for 2014. Special Collections and Arts on Campus at the University of Bradford are commissioning artist Kate Morrell to explore the Jacquetta Hawkes Archive. As a look at Kate’s website reveals, there are fascinating connections between Kate’s interests and the Archive. Kate has used classic mountaineering tales, flints, geological surveys, and archaeological practice as inspirations for her work. Like Jacquetta in her writings, Kate is drawn to reflections on our relationships with nature, the past, and the making of objects.
Her work will be exhibited in Gallery II at the University in the Spring of 2014. We look forward to collaborating with Kate and seeing what she makes of the Archive.
