Organs for Water

It is a short film about things like Buffy The Vampire Slayer on the beach, joining the police or joining a gang, the beach, finding a job or losing a job, falling in love or just being friends, getting wasted at school, in the cinema or on the beach, being a monster but not worrying what other people think, giving up on work and leisure and just playing.

Organs for Water (2016) was developed as part of WORK/LEISURE: a programme of five residencies conceived and delivered by Abingdon Studios in 2016.

Ralph Dorey was the second artist in residence as part of WORK/LEISURE.

The screening of Organs for Water coincided with the opening of two new exhibitions at Grundy Art Gallery; Jenny Steele: An Architecture of Joy and Louise Giovanelli; From Here to Here (Part 2)

WORK/LEISURE was funded by Arts Council England Grants for the Arts and supported by LeftCoast, Blackpool Council and Grundy Art Gallery
