About the project
Pope and Guthrie visited Kentwell Hall in Suffolk, site of the UK's largest re-enactments, where they took part in re-creating life from Tudor times and World War Two. Assuming their new personas of Ann and Mary, the artists took up occupations as limners (miniaturists), tackled the finer points of Tudor-ese, feasted on spam and learned to knit. Their experiences and those of their fellow re-enactors were captured using traditional and new media including blogs, tiny cameras, video diaries, pinhole photographs and silverpoint drawings.

About the artists
Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie met while studying at Edinburgh College of Art and have collaborated as artists for the last 10 years. Working together as Somewhere they produce their own projects but also initiate and curate projects, such as TV Swansong, with other artists. Almanac, their current project, also uses Kentwell Hall as one of five locations to be captured with time-lapse images during one year. Their other recent projects include feature-length documentary Bata-ville: We are not afraid of the future, and the live event It's a Lake District Knockout.
