Susan Stockwell is an internationally acclaimed artist who has show at the Tate’s Turbine Hall and last worked with Aspex on Boîte-en-Valise: Generator, presented at the Venice Biennale in 2017. ForExchange Stockwell will present Rumpelstiltskin, a new installation comprising hundreds of meters of cloth feeding through sewing machines, making clothes, inspired by fairy tales and their roles as metaphors for humanity. During her residency Stockwell will share sewing and mending skills with local people and create a flotilla of money boats which appear in surprise locations across the city.

Rhiannon Armstrong is an award-winning interdisciplinary artist with over a decade of experience making works with empathy, interaction, and dialogue at their core. Armstrong’s residency will take place in Portsmouth’s libraries, where she will invite library users to write their own poetry to add to the library’s special collections and be translated into animations on digital screens in Guildhall Square and at Victorious Festival.

Monica Bonomo’s artistic practice utilises the colours extracted from plants. Her interest centres our ever-changing relationship with earth’s resources. Bonomo will share and exchange this passion through sensorial and experimental botanical workshops, taking place at Aspex and throughout Portsmouth.

Creative events and workshops will be held at the gallery located within Portsmouth’s premium retail centre Gunwharf Quays, as well as locations throughout the city, including the Tennis Pavilion at Canoe Lake, and Victorious Festival  - a three-day music festival held on Southsea Common.
