Acclaimed photographer, Trish Morrissey brings two brand new bodies of work to the Hestercombe Gallery, inspired by the last female occupants of Hestercombe House, Miss Warre (1790-1872) and Mrs Portman (1854-1951) who both independently ran the Hestercombe estate.

Morrissey has created the work, that includes stills and film, through a residency at Hestercombe – immersing herself in the individual’s lives through archive material such as photographs, drawings, and letters. The lives of the two women, although intrinsically interesting in their own right are the also a route used to explore broader themes of class, role-play, body and gesture, and the relation between public and private spaces.

Crossing the disciplines of performance and photography and playing with notions of fact/fiction and time/history Morrissey’s work creates a visual drama.
