Artist Amy Cutler visited Stoke-on-Trent and the Staffordshire Moorlands on the first weekend in September in preparation for her commission Ludchurch Channel. The project combines ideas of individual and communal experience of landscape, and of Lud’s Church itself as a form of ‘channel’ in the landscape and Amy will create a film and a soundpiece based in this mossy chasm. This film-as-public-laboratory will make visible the process of bringing together the human and nonhuman threads of the “green chapel”, as both a private and a public channel; a hidden place for individual ritual, but also a shared landscape at the same time.
You can follow the work as it develops on Amy's own site and through Festival Stoke's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels.
Festival Stoke is a collaborative of creative people working together to make good things happen.
