Rachel Riggs

Rachel Riggs’s project, Yardworks, 2010, was a site specific project, based in Preston, which involved theatre artworks and community interventions. The project led Riggs on a journey which uncovered the past, recognised the present and discovered the future possibilities of an abandoned site. The site was once Yardworks, Horrockses – a model site of empirical prosperity, a world unto itself inside the high brick wall. Now, all that is left are a few sections of brick walls, maps and a model of the site at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery.

Years of study 2007 – 2009
