The title of the exhibition, ‘entre chien et loup’ translates to ‘between dog and wolf’. In French this phrase represents the moment halfway between day and night. Dominique took particular inspiration from the city’s natural harbour, with both its Naval connections and its many commercial and leisure activities; working alongside volunteer boat-builders in the Dockyard to produce a new artwork to be revealed at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. This, amongst other exhibits, will offer the opportunity to view further work produced during this prestigious award.

“Our international artists’ residency programme has been a phenomenal success. Portsmouth has made our visiting artists feel very welcome. The City, its landscape, its people and its artist community have inspired some beautiful and thought provoking artworks and events. It's very appropriate that Dominique should mark the third and final phase of this prestigious project by linking together three of Portsmouth's most dynamic cultural attractions.”

Steve Fisher, Chair of the Board of Trustees at Art Space Portsmouth

The residency is generously funded by Arts Council England and Art Space Portsmouth and run in partnership with Aspex and the University of Portsmouth. Additionally, Art Space Portsmouth would like to thank the Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust for their additional support to realise part of this final project.
