Sketchbooks turned into a sixteen part online soap opera.
Telenovela was made out of my life and my sketchbooks (and the gap between them). Set across Brazil and the UK, it blurred fiction and documentary, exploring and challenging the very nature of memory itself. There were all the cliffhangers and mundanity you’d expect when you try and televise your life. Trailer here:
Each episode was released nightly at 9pm (UK time) and culminated with a huge outdoor cinema screening of the whole series on the full moon of 10th September 2022.

This was an international collaboration between artists in the UK and Brazil. Two new films were created by associate artists Mark Croasdale and Audrey Albert.
Telenovela is commissioned by HOME and Islington Mill. It is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
