16th century casebooks, Kettle’s Yard and North Cambridge

Artist Emma Smith, Open House resident artist for 2015, introduces her sources of inspiration and discusses her residency and artistic practice.

Open House is a creative collaboration between communities of North Cambridge and Kettle’s Yard. Smith’s residency has been inspired by 16th century casebooks which note the ailments, whether physical or social, of the population and ‘prescribed’ solutions of astrologers Forman and Napier. Her work also reflects founder of Kettle’s Yard, Jim Ede, who would welcome soldiers on leave from Gibraltar to his home in Tangiers for a cultural ‘respite’ in their duties.

Smith will introduce these sources of inspiration and discuss her Open House residency and artistic practice.
