Market’s 2021 Studio Projects Home Residency has been awarded to Tilly P-M. 

“What could live beyond the plughole, in the pipes?”

For the next three months, Tilly will look at mystical mundanity, the gaps around us (metaphorical and physical) being a seedbed for fantasy of self, objects and our surroundings. Making animatronic coded creatures from simplified motion to live within domestic bodies of water; unfamiliarising the familiar.

Tilly P-M is from the Isle of Skye, now living in Glasgow. They’re a shark enthusiast interested in the cultural horror that surrounds these animals that keep to themselves. They’re curious about water, how folklore begins, and the potential of mythologies being born from daily routine.
