Writer in Residence

Tom Morton


In addition to Tom Morton's practice as a curator and critic, his activities are increasingly slanting towards the production of works of fiction, often in collaboration with artists. To date, these have included installation and film works made with the artists Saâdine Afif and Victor Man, and text works made with Man, Roger Hiorns, and Alexander Tovborg.

He is currently writing a screenplay for a film that he will co-direct with the American artist Matthew Day Jackson later in 2012/13, and in the autumn of 2012 he will be included as an artist in a group exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, which will also feature works by Matthew Darbyshire, Cullinan Richards and Bridget Smith.

Tom's residency at Art House Foundation is focused on the production of a long form work of prose fiction, provisionally entitled Doggerland, that focuses on contemporary Britain, pedagogy, and the mythology of the 'wild boy'.
