ART FIX: Can you guess all the interpretative walks?

Friday 10 April 2020

From recreating iconic portraits to guessing some iconic walks... There's a lot of artsy fun to get stuck into this bank holiday weekend.

Every Friday, Express is presenting a selection of online exhibitions, performances and other creative content to help islanders continue getting their weekly dose of creative joy.

Jersey Arts Centre, Jersey Heritage and ArtHouse Jersey have all turned to technology to offer virtual performances, videos and photographs to keep islanders entertained throughout lockdown while their normal programme has been suspended amid the pandemic.

Here are the latest offerings...

Recreate Jersey Heritage’s art collections 


If you find yourself bored at home and in need of a distraction, Jersey Heritage is suggesting you dress up as Lillie Langtry or King like Charles II, using what you have around the house to recreate works from their collections. 

Some of the team has already had a go, but if you need some inspiration go to and type in Jersey as your search term, or search the collections online

Jersey Heritage has also launched a new 'Heritage at Home' hub, where islanders can enjoy virtual talks and tours, exhibitions, stuff to make and do, among other interactive content.

"We might be stuck at home in lockdown but our island's incredible heritage is still all around us. We are inviting people to throw open the virtual doors, get comfy and enjoy some heritage stories from the comfort of their homes," Louise Downie, Heritage's Director of Curation and Experience, said.

From Monday to Friday, Jersey Arts Centre is presenting a daily series of audio content in the evening to bring stories directly to islanders’ homes. 

From short stories to novellas, and from plays to poems, check out the JAC-anory event on the Arts Centre’s website to tune in and enjoy!  

Beasts and Beauties 

While the latest Youtheatre production - 'Beasts and Beauties' by Carol Ann Duffy – won’t be able to go ahead in front of an audience, Jersey Arts Centre has decided to release a new section of the show every Wednesday. 

Make sure to watch - each section is only available for one week.

And now for a bit of fun... can you guess all the interpretative walks in this video?

Last week, ArtHouse Jersey launched a digital platform to allow emerging and established artists to exhibit, promote and share their work.

Among the first selection of specially commissioned digital content was this series of interpretative walks performed by Joss MacDonald, winner of the ArtHouse Jersey Olive Brown Bursary in 2016.

Joss studied physical theatre at East 15 Acting School before co-founding Project Lockout, a physical and visual theatre company driven by the medium of movement, monologue and spoken word that performed at festivals and venues across the UK.

Having been self-isolating at ArtHouse Jersey HQ at Grève de Lecq Barracks, Joss created the video, inviting everyone to guess which famous character’s walk he is bringing to life.
