Since winning a commission from Artangel and BBC Radio 4’s open call for emerging British artists, Katrina Palmer has based herself on the Isle of Portland, Dorset.

Palmer has created a series of narratives set on Portland for radio listeners, readers and walkers: The Quarryman’s Daughters, is a 30-minute broadcast on BBC Radio 4; The Loss Adjusters, a site-specific audio walk on Portland presented in association with b-side; and a newly published book, End Matter.

The Loss Adjusters begins in an empty office on the high street in Easton, Portland. Equipped with headsets, visitors head out past St George’s cemetery and towards Bowers quarry, listening to stories about the primal forces of the island’s geology, a young offender turned gravedigger, and the Horrocks sisters, eccentric daughters of a dead quarryman who live in two huts on the edge of the island.
