Member of the collective studio 2019/2020 at the Newbridge Project, Gateshead.
Through a research-based practice Meaghan Stewart explores the intersection between memory, fiction and experience. She is interested in The Everyday and memes. She draws upon a mother-daughter relationship, women’s labour (seen and unseen) and the threshold between real and virtual; subverting home-making for world-building.
