Ruth Hadlow (rh) and Mandy Smith (ms) are process-based installation artists. In field notes & conversations, the artists will work at MAC as artists-in-residence for 3 weeks.

MAC’s Project Space will become a studio for creative interactions between reading, writing, making and conversation, focused on a poetics of the ordinary. (ms) & (rh) will explore the surrounding local environment, as well as the ad-hoc nature of ideas imported through books, conversations, and incidental encounters.

(rh) & (ms) are interested in making the interior of creative practice visible through an informal performance of process. Their diverse joint backgrounds include theatre, visual art, performance, writing, publishing, educating, community & socially engaged projects, gardening and walking. They work with makeshift and improvisational strategies, basic materials, and language to explore attentive, intimate and playful relations with the immediate moment and all the possibilities it may contain.
