Interesting session with artist, James Iveson, at Outpost - especially his sentiment that wanted his work to be something not merely of something; which reminded me of A Building is not a Building by Ola Kolehmainen. Also good discussion about curating the work and how best to display it; I was pleased to be able to share some of my thoughts from a couple of weeks earlier when first saw the show.
Today's second sessions was a presentation and discussion about the role of writing alongside other art practice and how writings often accompany exhibitions and help or hinder how they are received by the reader/viewer and how the artists words can unduly limit the reading of their work.
It was good to get my learning agreement completed this week, I have now uploaded a pdf copy of this for future reference:
It was also good to see a number of pieces of my Damaged work published in Magnet this month to accompany an article on people trafficking and also at the same time to have a piece from the same body of work on the wall at NUCA, having been accepted in the positions group show, I have included a couple of installation shots below:
