Patrick Stratton (British b. 1994) is an artist focusing on combining tapestry and electronics. His recent works are all based around the theme “Things I do Sometimes” (which does what it says on the tin) where each piece ends up being a moving tapestry. Since finishing his masters he’s done a show in Milan, and been shortlisted for the cordis prize in Edinburgh and the Ashurst prize in London.
Residency Project Idea
For this opportunity he’s keen to focus on his non-moving work, making traditional tapestries – given the ability to focus that the live-in residency provides. He would be interested in focusing on humour and composition, branching out with his subject matter. This would practically take the form of four to five large framed tapestries (although a moving piece might just sneak in there too).
Nick Jordan and Amber Henry of Mason & Fifth, alongside Hypha Studios trustees
Mason & Fifth is a community living project who have offered fully furnished flats and studio spaces to eight artists for two months at their site in Primrose Hill. They partnered with Hypha Studios for the selection process. The live-in residencies are offered in exchange for donating a work made during the two months to Mason & Fifth, who will display the work in one of their future buildings and in an exhibition in early 2023.
