Fire Station Residency
Holly Antrum (born London, 1983) is an artist filmmaker working with 16mm film, digital film and writing, printmaking and drawing. Her practice captures tactile histories but shifts the role of the document to acknowledge and present influences and subjectivities over a material narrative. The visible and ephemeral mechanics of play, poetic resonance, gesture and surface are used in dialogue with her position as filmmaker – bridging the diverging modes of film’s sociality and internal thought.
Fire Station Residency 2015-2020
Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2015-2020 residents were selected by former Acme Residency and Projects Manager Julia Lancaster, and artists and former Fire Station residents Erika Tan and Ben Cove.
