Megan Calver

Megan Calver originally studied English and American Literature. She made her first thin pencil lines on her thirty-eighth birthday in the sketchbook given to her by one of her two daughters. Since then she has made and thought about things using any number of materials and methods to research an enquiry in hand. She thinks that a process-based practice such as hers requires both chance and self-restraint. It is a question of the balance between finding, giving up and creating what can be known.

Work ranges from slight interruptions in public spaces to a sustained collaboration with Social Scientists at Bournemouth University on a project about memory loss.

In 2015, Megan exhibited in 'Second Site' at Hestercombe Gallery, Taunton. 'Second Site' presented new work in response to Hestercombe Gallery’s reclaimed spaces through exploration of Hestercombe’s history and recent re-unification between the house and gardens.
