Julia Riddiough Internal States

Internal States

A six-month collaborative project with Kent artist Kati Saqui.

A touring site-specific installation using a caravan as a vessel for our current projects Misguided (Riddiough) and Emotional Cartography (Saqui), raising questions around how we map our emotions. The caravan is a gigantic viewing box signifying the exploration of the human condition looking both inwards and out. Themes of neglect, anxiety and isolation inform the work and sense of being and place.

A blog has been produced to document the tour and includes portraits of visitors to the caravan and also a 'misguided portrait gallery' As part of the intervention we have created a 'diary of emotion' to log audiences’ feelings, emotions and responses to the project. This took the form of a physical book and blog.
