Archaeology residency & touring exhibition
An archaeological residency project in France and Jersey that explored links between artistic and archaeological research. Four artists - two from each region: Matt Falle, Karen Le Roy Harris, Amélie Delaunay and Fleur Helluin spent time developing work in both places; as part of an active team on an archaeological site in Vieux La Romaine in Caen; under the guidance in Jersey of Jersey Heritage’s Curator of Archaeology, Olga Finch, as well as Dr Matt Pope and his team where they were given access to Jersey’s significant archaeological sites including Les Varines, La Hougue Bie, La Cotte and Neolithic dolmens. This led to a travelling exhibition of work in each place. Art’chaeology was developed by Les Ateliers Intermédiaires and ArtHouse Jersey with support of the Normandy Regional Council, the Institute Français and the States of Jersey. It also received support of the Calvados Department Council, Vieux la Romaine’s museum and archaeological sites, the Maison de la Normandie, and the experts and archaeological sites of Jersey Heritage.
