Meet the Artists – Vicky Long & Eloise Moody
20 August 2021
Orleans House Gallery
Come and meet the current artists in residence and find out about their research project.
During Remember the Future we have invited artists to come and explore how we can reconnect with nature. They will be completing residencies this summer and will be on-site throughout the summer. This is an opportunity to meet them and find out what they are up to. There is no need to book, just show up on the day. This is a drop-in.
Vicky Long works across a range of media. She has a keen interest in people and place, and the dynamic of that relationship over time.
She has worked as a maker, designer and performer in theatre and collaborated internationally with theatre/dance directors Wan Tik Lun, Douglas Rintoul and Vikram Iyengar. Ongoing collaboration with Vikram Iyengar, on a performance research project focussed on the ecology of the Sundarbans, continues to lead to a variety of outcomes in multiple locations. Vicky has also created sound and site-specific work for Cape Farewell, the Eden Project, Stories of Change, TfL and the boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth, Southbank Centre, Art Night and York St. Mary’s.
Eloise Moody is a multi-disciplinary artist/maker. Her work investigates subjects of memory, absence and belonging through socially engaged practice. Working with specific groups of people; from security guards and nuns to those who are the last in their family line, she helps to uncover and document moments of beauty, translating them into finely made artworks that often go back into the public realm.
She has worked with Museum of London, Kettles Yard, Metal, London Wetland Centre, the Art Lending Library and BMAG amongst others.
Vicky and Eloise first collaborated together on Colourfield, a Shrinking Space commission and part of the Wonder Project at Kew Wakehurst, 2018
