The Custody Code

July 5th, 2019

I am delighted to be able to say that The Custody Code, my new film installation, will be open to the public at Alice Holt Forest, Farnham, GU10 4LS, from the 10th July – 1st September.
The project has been a number of years in the making and follows the life cycle of timber production from seed to sawmill, all told from the unique perspective of people who work in the industry. A sustainably sourced timber structure houses the films deep within the forest, providing an intimate and immersive experience. 
The work has been commissioned by the Forestry Commission to celebrate 100 years of forestry.

Formation Level

January 4th, 2019

I am pleased to announce my first large scale solo exhibition in a public art gallery at Aspex, Portsmouth. You would be very welcome at the exhibition preview on Thursday 17 January from 6 – 8pm. The exhibition runs from  18 January – 24 March.

A former civil engineer, artist/film-maker Amanda brings her technical expertise to an exploration of the materials, companies and individuals that make and maintain the roads we all use.

In the exhibition Formation Level Amanda uses experimental documentary techniques to record the processes and hidden narratives of the labour and materials embedded in our roads, including the manufacture of road sweepers.

The exhibition will also comprise material from Amanda’s own archive of her time as a civil engineer, including photographs, diagrams and other ephemera.

Director of Aspex, Joanne Bushnell said:

“We first started working with Amanda on the development of this show when she won our South Central award in 2014. We have valued the opportunity to work closely with her for many years, supporting her ongoing professional development. It’s been great to see other opportunities such as the Photoworks/HOUSE commission come her way, and to see her practice grow from strength to strength.”
