At her time at The Balcony, within her own personal capacity, Harriet will engage in conversation with her immediate and wider community.

What do you do, and what do you do?’ will navigate the role of food, service and the arts being tools for conversational togetherness, which are now equally as precarious and under threat in the current time. Within the present climate, jobs which seemed less precarious and often financial supported artists, specifically within horeca, have become as unreliable as working as an artist itself.

How are we learning to navigate the continuously growing precarious structures we occupy and what recipes of care can we share? The vitrine of The Balcony will be used as storage space to house the tools she will use to address these questions.

If you would like to talk to Harriet about your labours, jobs and recipes of care, please contact her via her email, she would love to hear from you: whatdoyoudoandwhatdoyoudo@gmail.com

Harriet Rose Morley is a multi-disciplinary artist, maker, educator and facilitator. She works across the disciplines of public art, sculpture, spacial design and alternative education. Her work and projects often challenge our ideas of the function and role of art within public space and is often reliant on public interaction and collaboration through workshops, conversations and educational events. These, in turn, provide an accessible and inclusive insight into topics of urgency within art and public space such as the relationship between politics and art, social culture and gentrification, care and therapy, self-organisation, alternative education, and self-build ideals. She is currently the first year long artist in resident at Hotel Maria Kapel (NL) and has just produced her first large scale public art commission in Plymouth. She is also very tired, excited, happy, sad, emotional and determined, but stresses continuously about how to make her practice fully financially sustainable, in an Art world which is every increasingly exploitative of peoples labour. She has been living in the Netherlands since the beginning of 2019, previously studying and living in Glasgow, Scotland and is originally from North Yorkshire, England.

This project is supported by neither the Mondriaan Fonds, or Stroom Den Haag
