A certain slant of light
Trish Morrissey was Hestercombe Gallery’s 2017 Artist in Residence. The resulting exhibition shows a major new body of work about the lives of Miss Warre (1790-1872) and Mrs Portman (1854-1951), women who at different times in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries ran the Hestercombe estate. Drawing on sources from the Hestercombe archive, Morrissey’s new work also explores themes of class, gender and role play, body and gesture, the language of photography, and the relation between public and private.
The exhibition ran from 18.11.17 – 25.02.18
