Big Stone and Rain. Artist Residency at Tidworth Garrison

Mark Edmondson, Steve Pratt


This video film documents a workshop undertaken by Steve Pratt with a tank crew from The Royal Tank Regiment, Tidworth Garrison, Wiltshire. The workshop was part of an artist residency commissioned by the Young Gallery, Salisbury, Wiltshire, as described in the article ‘Working with Uncertainty: The Soldier’s Nightmare’ by Steve Pratt in this issue. The title of the film comes from the John Piper watercolour landscape painting ‘Maen Bras’ (Big Stone and Rain, 1943) owned by the Young Gallery, which formed a focus and point of reflection for the project.
