Jay Bernard

Description Details

One of the artists in residence for the University of Bristol’s new Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, writer Jay Bernard (winner of the Ted Hughes award for new poetry and author of the new collection Surge) is creating a bold and experimental 360 degree film to explore how we build, develop and occupy space. Person/hood – featuring a series of interviews drawing on the history of the Temple Quarter site and the vision for its future – will be experienced through VR headsets (provided in the venue). ‘Space in a city is almost always contested’, Bernard argues. ‘What we remember of them is usually dictated by the powerful. I intend to create an archive of spaces around the Temple Quarter site that asks different questions, that tries to document the experience and memory of ordinary residents.’

Person/hood will be shown ten times throughout the day, with each session lasting fifteen minutes: 10:00-10:15, 10:30-10:45, 11:00-11:15, 11:30-11:45, 12:00-12:15, 13:30-13:45, 14:00-14:15, 14:30-14:45, 15:00-15:15 and 15:30-15:45. At the time of booking, please select the session you wish to attend.
