Independent curator and writer Jes Fernie is Curator in Residence at Flat Time House in January and February 2019. She will be developing her Archive of Destruction project,a critical analysis of public artwork made over the last century that has been destroyed by natural causes or by human action through fear, boredom, greed, decay and love. She will be looking into FTHo archives and developing partnerships in Amsterdam, Great Yarmouth and London.
