Seance - Spelunking - Taking Margate’s caves and tunnels as a starting point, Open School East invited their associate artists and members of the public to join artist Benedict Drew for an 8-week video-making project. They embarked on an imaginary exploration of the subterranean and created a fictional underground space, a place of myth, retreat, contemplation, meditation or even a place to party.

I led on two events for the Spelunking programme concentrating on underground ceremonies.
I re-enacted a Spirit Cabinet drawing on the myths and stories of Margate's spirit world.
In homage to the seance's led by the honourable ladies of Margate in The Shell Grotto in the 30's, I recreated a seance at Turner Contemporary with the help of the public to call up the spirit on JMW Turner.
