GRAND UNION ARTIST RESIDENCY


We spent two-months researching The Grand Union Canal while in residence at Grand Union—a gallery and studio space in Digbeth, Birmingham, England. Throughout the residency the water located in the canal played an important role in our explorations and became a strong metaphor for the social and spatial shifts occurring in the neighbourhood. Alongside this work with the water, we considered the historical exploitation of the canal horse, and how, like time travellers, the animal’s labour warned of the current market forces affecting the community. Gallery Director Cheryl Jones interviews Moschopedis and Rushton and asks them to dive down and bring to the surface their thoughts and experiences of being in residence at Grand Union.
