Fire Station Residency
Susan Corke works across installation, printmaking and drawing. With a special interest in inaccessible, invisible worlds and natural sciences, she takes a narrative approach with her work. She frequently collaborates with German artist, Hagen Betzwieser, under the name We Colonised The Moon.
In 2007 Susan won a Ferdynand Zweig travel scholarship to undertake practical creative research in the field of contemporary printmaking and illustration in northern Europe. She was also the Artist in Residence at Amsterdam's Grafisch Atelier in 2007. Susan is Head of Printmaking at the Art Academy, London.
Fire Station Residency 2010-2015
Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2010-2015 artists were selected by artist and educator Cath Hawes, artist Gayle Chong Kwan, and Acme's founder and former Chief Executive Jonathan Harvey.
