Housemate Tuesdays: Joey Mottershead

Who are you?

Joey Mottershead, 23 years on the planet so far, Island creature, congregates around the middle.

What is your art?

Making movements to heal the body/mind. Assembling words to calm the soul. Digital work is also fun. Soon I plan to make music (when I’m good and ready).

What’s coming up for you?

I am making a show called ‘Dirty Rebirth’ with dance artist Scarlett Turner of Fuelled Dance Theatre. We are exploring what it means to live with a personality disorder; attempting to find a melody in the tune of selfcare. It will premier at the Attenborough Arts Centre in June; please come and feel with us.

I am trying to figure out how to express trauma in as many ways as possible, I think this is one.

I made a film once to do the same thing, you can see it below.

I am also trying to create a new poem every day until I stop. The evidence of this can be found on Instagram (if you’re the type to want words all the time check it out).

Who are you?

Carise Zangerle Murray is a half Argentinian half English one. Queer and creative.

What is your art?

Visual artist including painting and illustrations. Musically it’s all about the rhythm with the melody. Hang drum perfectly satisfies this for me. I love to explore digital, mixed sounds.

What’s coming up for you?

I have just created a Mind Mural for Destress Fest at the Attenborough Arts Centre. Go and see it for yourself along with all the other wonderful stress-relieving exhibits!

I am also a Project Artist for Emerge as Mythm; working with school children to create a festival inspired by Shakespeare.

What’s your art?

Photography and Video. Stills are my real passion though – I like to experiment with lots of different styles and types of photography.


What’s coming up for you?

I’ve been quite pre-occupied lately with my job but really eager to get back to shooting. I’ve been taking a lot of inspiration from documentary photographers lately so want to try that out – find some excuses to go out shooting again. Of course I’m looking forwards to the next House of Verse which I’ll be taking pics at – it’s a great event that’s always a challenge to try to capture.
