6-month Residency, workshops, events and film

Considering migration as a mode of collectively understanding the past, the project sits in opposition to the current cult of the individual showing the tension between the single human and society by drawing on themes including shelter, survival and ritual.

Made during a 6-month Cadw residency at Parc le Breos, a neolithic burial chamber in South Wales, The Chambered Cairn explores our evolution and migration to the British Isles and the impact of human development from hunter gathers to agriculture and domestication.

For approximately 2 million years prior to the advent of agriculture, gatherer-hunters enjoyed excellent health, social and sexual equality, very light workloads, plenty of leisure time and freedom from any form of government.
