More Information

Frances Scott earned her her MA in Fine Art with Distinction from Wimbledon College of Art in 2010. Working mostly in film and video installation, Scott has proposed an exploration of the concept of “waste” in its various incarnations and naturalism expressed itself in YSP’s legacy as the focus of her residency.

Miriam Austin earned her MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 2012. Austin is a sculpture, media, and performance artist whose practice interrogates ritual, myth, ecological fragility, and the politics of the body through performance and textile-heavy installations. For her residency, Austin intends to consider the intersection of folklore and ecology in the historic Yorkshire landscape, through text and sculpture.

Sam Belinfante earned his MA from the Slade School of Fine Art, and recently his PhD in Fine Arts from the University of Leeds. Though adept at working with photography, video installation, and other visual media, Belinfante is largely a sound artist. Much of his output concerns language, communication, and the transitivity of phenomenological senses like the aural/oral binary. Belifante’s residency proposal considers synaesthesia in A Midsummer’s Night Dream as a launching point to reconcile such binaries.

Tom Lovelace studied Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth, and Art History at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Reoccurring concerns in Lovelace’s portfolio are labour, documentation, and repetition. His residency will incorporate synchronised sculptural and photographic performance to contemplate issues of land, work, and aesthetic contemplation. 

On the heights is funded by Arts Council England, the Ampersand Foundation, and Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
