Holding Time by Lisa Creagh 

Fabrica's Making Space slot welcomes Lisa Creagh

The short residency is an opportunity to test Holding Time as a multi-screen installation featuring animation, stills and video. Using material created over the past three years of breastfeeding mothers, this four day installation will test a working method of showing stop motion portraits alongside an abstract 'time map' based on Cosmateque designs. 

Open to the public on Thursday 18 January 1-5pm.
Artists talk on Thursday 18 January, 6.30pm. Book a free ticket here.
