If Hope Could Speak

November 13, 2018

If Hope could speak was a poetry and film project at Chalkhill Education Centre, the school within Chalkhill hospital for young people with acute mental health challenges. The project was kicked off by poet Rachel Rooney who generated some poetry around the theme of Hope and Uncertainty. This material was responded to using objects, projections and animations exploring what hope and uncertainty meant for the young people involved. Rachel Rooney developed the material generated and edited by the young people to form a group poem which was combined with the visual material and soundtrack created by the participants in collaboration with Annis.

Artist Residency at Chalkhill

Artist in residence at Chalkhill Education Centre at Chalkhill Mental Health Hospital. Working with young people between 12 and18 years old exploring video art, animation and photography.

Breath Taking

July 19, 2017

Collaboration with artist Sarah Cole commissioned by PAVILION – a visual arts commissioning organisation in Leeds to work with mothers and carers and their children in Berkhamsted.


The project resulted in the creation of a video work ( which is where our collaboration began) at Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire. Ashridge’s Golden Valley was designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and this project is part of an ongoing contemporary art programme through which Pavilion is exploring the history and politics of Brown’s work. The project forms part of the Capability Brown Festival 2016, managed by the Landscape Institute and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Screen at The Tetley in January 2017:

"Pavilion presents Breath Taking, a new work by artist Sarah Cole and filmmaker Annis Joslin with a group of women and their children. Set in the Golden Valley, Ashridge Estate designed by Capability Brown, the 6-minute film brings poetic play into the natural landscape. Referred to posthumously as ’the omnipotent magician’, Capability Brown’s tropes of distraction, deception and sleight of hand are evidenced in the film: a card shuffle, stem of broccoli and Mylar fabric serve to trick the eye".
