Heather Passmore fra Canada

Name: Heather Passmore

Nationality: Dual: the UK and Canada

Homeland: Canada

Town: Vancouver

Age: 31

How long are you resident? From April 1 2009 until May 31 2009

About you work

Discipline: I am currently doing a series of large photo based paintings on found mattress fabric.

 Technique: My practice is conceptually based and I work across a variety of processes and
 mediums as needed. I have combined painting, drawing, photography, stencils and projection
 with materials such as used linoleum, political t-shirts, plywood, thrift-shop frames, and
 artist rejection letters.

 Statement: My works typically explore the politics of taste, class, and art. I often seek to
 connect viewers to social and cultural stratification through the use of socio-historically laden
 materials. Discomfort with the nexus of art, power, and knowledge is manifest in my
 reconfiguration of quotidian, outdated, and discarded media which bear histories of taste and
 accumulations of labour. I will often re-valuate media in order to highlight certain quotidian
 experiences and practices as potential sites of consciousness-raising, if only as a
 reconfiguration of unwanted material bearing the broken utopian promise of the commodity.

Plans for your residency?
I am beginning a series of large representational paintings on patterned fabric from mattresses abandoned in the city of Vancouver. My images are based on police crime scene photographs which reveal the living spaces of poor families and single occupants. There is a both an affordable housing shortage and a bedbug epidemic in Vancouver, especially in Canada's most poverty stricken neighbourhood -The Downtown Eastside. I collected my material from Vancouver alleyways after taking very well researched precautions!
