There I spoke to the very lovely Lesley Farrell, with whom I did my last ever voluntary work with after finished University at the Collection working with John Newling for The Noah Laboratory back in 2009.
Lesley spoke about her work for this exhibition at Gunby Hall, about the Lincolnshire feminist and suffragette Emily Massingberd.
I'm off on my summer hols atm, so I decided a day out to go and see the exhibition would be good.
Emily Massingberd was a teetotal feminist, who often dressed in men's clothing, as many suffragettes at the time did n the fight for equality. In her honour, there were some "mocktails" created.
With the 1980s neon, I later thought that if I were commissioned to work with this, I'd get footage of Tom Cruise in Cocktail and rotoscope myself all over him.
