A residency at Bristol Record Office drew lost aspects back into the landscape.
Work focused on buildings demolished in the Cumberland Basin road development. Archive documents informed studies of the landscape around the Record Office, drawing lost elements back to life. Following the residency Artist and Creative Director Beth Môrafon was invited to create Stone landscapes, a joint show with Artist Amanda Chambers, at the Create Centre in 2004.
Drawings, film and animation uncovered the lost dock masters cottage revealing its slow demise from home, to construction site office. The whole house with walled garden and clock tower was unfortunately demolished in the final stage of road works in 1964. The exhibition featured the clock face, removed from the tower prior to demolition, which was kindly loaned by Bristol Museums.
The original set of framed prints from the show can now be purchased.
