AJ Stockwell | Fadic Rock

At the culmination of her six-week residency AJ Stockwell will be presenting Fadic Rock.
Clay, sound and a stage come together to reveal a point in time that has been lost to history. The work draws on AJ’s ongoing research into the Society of White Rock, a community centered round the preservation of precious porcelain, and its customs and folk traditions.

Elements of museum display and theatre design are employed to accompany a soundtrack of repeat rhythms and tones, in an effort to sing the fadic rock back into present time. This singing of the rock mirrors a folk custom of ‘singing the land’ emerging from AJ’s memories of her maternal connection to the Western Isles.

The ‘fadic rock’ is a material lost in time, a fiction born of physical stuff, a utopic material fetish.

During the evening, AJ will speak about her research with Fiona MacDonald (artist and Director of Standpoint Futures) as a performed ‘in conversation’ event.

Standpoint Futures visual art development residencies are for artists based outside Greater London. They are designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency’s chief aims are to provide high quality, individualised opportunities to develop the artist’s practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas. Participants are provided with accommodation in London, mentoring from relevant professionals, and work space. The programme in 2017 is run in partnership with Chisenhale Studios.
