Deborah Rundle

YSP and Te Tuhi New Zealand-UK Residency Award

Deborah Rundle will take up a four-week residency in September 2022 in partnership with Te Tuhi, one of New Zealand’s leading contemporary art spaces.

Rundle’s practice focuses on language as a means to explore power relations, with a particular interest in the machinations of late capitalism. During her time onsite, Rundle will research and develop new work in response to the 1875 Woollen Weavers’ Strike in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and the key figure of labour activist Ann Ellis, linking actions from the past with contemporary labour issues.

This Artist Award is supported by philanthropists Sigrid and Stephen Kirk.
