  1. WIP Tender Burial, 16mm film transferred to video 2024

    Tender Burial is a 16mm film-poem. Whilst walking across an ancient headland, an unknown narrator engages in processes of excavating, burying, making and learning. The film traces the history of two women, who possibly lived at the same time (around 700BCE) whose remains were excavated in the late 19th and early 20th Century, displaced from their rightful burial grounds and ultimately displayed within museum collections a few miles from one another.
