Jamie was selected to take part in our Some Times Residency Programme 2016/17. His work is often centred around the tension between fact and fiction within issues of identity, history, memory and subjectivity as expressed through the seemingly objective experience of the archive and the institution.

The London based artist used his month long residency to experiment and develop ongoing project, Widows and Orphans. The project takes a secondary school textbook 'A History of the Modern World' as source material to create a multi –screen, multi-voice installation.
