Artist in Residence /
23rd February – 11th March, 2016
Barnacle Studio (artist Mignon Steele and architect Morgan Figgis) will use The Lock-Up residency to research and explore their respective practices in visuals arts and architecture.
During their residency Barnacle Studio will be working side-by-side The Lock-Up’s cultural partners University of Newcastle and Hunter Street Tafe, working with students and utilising studio space and facilities.
‘At the heart of all Barnacle Studio’s permutations is our mutual admiration of the natural world; this incredible country and its exquisite ecosystems are the ultimate inspiration. We’re interested in ways of creating in a way that allows us to be a part of nature rather than conquerors or detractors.’
