Another Place Like Home is a collaborative work presented on-line which solicits and encourages active participation with the digital audience. Visit the project website to take part.
This commission is part of the Forge Artist Open Call Programme which invited 12 West Midlands artists and/or curators to make new bodies of work for the Blast! Festival and take part in a mentorship programme.
Andrew Jackson is a contemporary British artist who engages with the challenges of representation and narration through the medium of photography. He is an award-winning recipient of the Autograph ABP / Light Work International Photography Residency in Syracuse, New York. His interventions focus on notions of selfhood, revised histories, memory, family, storytelling and urbanism. A graduate of the MA Documentary Programme at Newport in Wales, Jackson has since undertaken both self-initiated and commissioned works in the UK and abroad. In 2018, he was shortlisted for the Elliott Erwitt Fellowship. He currently lectures at Coventry University.
