Mother Anglia, filmed August 2020 at Wicken Fen, the oldest National Trust nature reserve and wetland in East Anglia. Drawn to the work 'Mother...' by Studio Morison, commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre as part of a three-year programme New Geographies, I set out with my own mother the week a five-year old relationship ended. With paternal ancestral heritage originating from the area, and my maternal side of the family having since coincidentally also settling nearby, to perform a pilgrimage to the area became in a richly organic sense a reflective layered narrative of birth, rebirth, motherhoods, place and home, as well as an opportunity to process trauma, change and loss.
