Mother Anglia, filmed August 2020 at Wicken Fen, the oldest National Trust nature reserve and wetland in East Anglia. Drawn to the work ‘Mother…’ by Studio Morison, commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre as part of the programme New Geographies, I set out with my own mother the week a five-year old relationship with my co-parent ended. With paternal ancestral heritage from the area, and my (divorced) maternal side of the family having since coincidentally settled nearby, to perform a pilgrimage to ‘Mother…’ became a richly-layered, explorative narrative of birth, rebirth, motherhoods, place and home, as well as an opportunity to process trauma, change and loss.
