Trish Morissey @ Hestercombe Gallery, Somerset

18 November 2017 - 25 February 2018

Trish Morrissey works with photography, film and video. As Hestercombe’s 2017 Artist in residence, she has made 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, A Certain Slant of Light, explores themes of class, gender and role play, body and gesture, the language of photography, and the relation between public and private.
