House on the Hill

Research-led project uncovering hidden narratives of Nancy Astor and her many associations with Plymouth. As the first woman to take a seat in the House of Commons in 1919, Astor paved the way for women in politics, and her sharp wit, strong opinions and ‘Astorisms’ were well-known throughout parliament.
The body of work referenced the domestic surface, the fabric of a building, traces of existence and a sense of presence.
