Sound and vision

This month we're kicking off a new film series 'What do Axis artists do all day?' where we take a behind-the-scenes look at an Axis member and their practice. First up is an interview with Leeds-based artist Alice Chandler. We caught up with Alice at her home studio in Burley, Leeds before moving on to her main studio at Sunny Bank Mills. Alice's practice is informed by the intersection between art, craft and design.

Greetings From The Sick Bed by Jaron Hill

Axis is extremely excited to announce Greetings From The Sick Bed by Jaron Hill, a collection of works that include photography, poetry, and music. This collection is also accompanied by an additional poem by the artist Wolfie Wright.

The release of Greetings from the Sick Bed marks the end of Jaron’s time on the Axis Digital Residency. Over the course of February you can view this collection within our new Axis Viewing Room, which is free to attend and can be accessed here.

To obtain the best viewing experience we recommend you use a desktop computer.
