The concept of Afterlife (Woodland) stems from French & Mottershead's Understory 1-12, part of Up To Nature, a European co-production with In Between Time.

Woodland is one of a developing series of audio narratives that invite listeners to reflect on what happens to their body after death in different environments: a deciduous woodland; a climate-controlled art museum; an urban waterway; a domestic space –with each narrative compressing decades into minutes

French Mottershead make situations in which people can think again about who they are, their ties to place, and one another. They use art as a site of experience, by engaging mind and body with tangible narratives that disturb and develop the sense of self in our fast evolving environments. Working across performance, photography, film and installation, they’ve shown extensively in international contexts including museums, galleries, festivals and in the public realm
