Leisure R & D Residency

Leisure Research and Development Residency

As the first recipients of the Leisure Research and Development Residency, Jesse Ash and Simon Clark spent four days in Ontario cottage country, pursuing their interest in cultural landscape research while engaging in conversation, leisure sport and festive decoration.

In a recent Articule Special Project Ash & Clark performed Broadcast at le Local. Through a rigourous process of research and field tripping, the artists gathered impressions of Montreal in an archive of writing, images and ingenious flow charts. Inspired by some of the first printed newspapers in Britain, known as “chapbooks”, which contained song-sheets, rhymes and stories, Broadcast explored the mechanisms of information selection and distribution in the media.
