Fermynwoods presented new work created by Artists in Residence in rural spaces across Northamptonshire in our residency venue in the middle of Fermyn Woods. The venue is only accessible via a 2 mile track and offers artists the opportunity to research, experiment and make new work in an isolated setting.

The exhibition included a sound work performed by Jason Singh in Blisworth Tunnel, a video work and maps created in response to the journey made by three artists travelling on a narrow boat along the River Nene and Grand Union Canal, and Sophie Herxheimer’s large, screen printed book with visual poems of local woodlands stories and new poems. Rebecca Lee also led audio walks through Fermyn Woods, using sound to explore the woods in new ways.

The Remote Lab was part of the Nene Valley Festival and Northamptonshire Open Studios and delivered in partnership with East Northamptonshire Council and Kettering Borough Council. It was funded by Arts Council England.
