In 2020-21, Hospitalfield commissioned Jade Montserrat four months of Studio Time to develop ideas for a new art work for Hospitalfield’s 2021 Programme. In September 2021, Jade developed the live durational performance Live Charcoal which happened over 5 days at Hospitalfield. More information on the project can be found here.
