233-269 High Street Archive


Elaine Fisher & Will Lindley, artists in residence 233-269 High Street Archive (July – Dec 2014).  Exhibition, artists book and symposium (Jan-Feb 2016).  Commissioned by MEANTIME project space and supported by The University of Gloucestershire

Collaborative residency with artist William Lindley, exploring constant change on Cheltenham’s Lower High Street through the lens of a Modernist building in the process of demolition. Drawings of historic buildings (previously destroyed to make way for the present building) were projected onto minimalist structures (studio reconstructions of the buildings (d)evolving facades); referencing an (un)realised Utopia and questioning the realities promised by the new development.
