Artist Residency: Lancashire Saw Company

    Activity: Other activity typesOther


    In residence with Lancashire Saw Company, Jacqueline presented IMPERIAL, a film inspired by a combination of fast beats, slow canals and the repetition of industry. The manufacturer is housed in Imperial Mill, the imposing former textile mill built in 1901 on Blackburn’s Stretch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. Jacqueline created work that could be presented in-situ, inviting an audience to experience the canal and rediscover it as a place for cultural activity.

    The original soundtrack makes a connection to the underground dance scene of the late 1980’s that was particularly prevalent and influential in Blackburn and East Lancashire.
