Artist Talks Programme

Artist Talks Programme - Jennifer Halvorson/ Choi Kee Ryong

Venue: Lecture Theatre 009, the Prospect Building, St Peter's Campus (2 minutes walk from National Glass Centre)

4pm Jennifer Halvorson

Jennifer Halvorson was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She earned dual B.F.A. degrees in Metal and Glass at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. In 2005, she studied abroad at the Australian National University in Canberra. After completing her undergraduate studies, Jennifer travelled to Denmark as a Fulbright Scholar. She continued studying glass at Danmarks Designskole in Copenhagen and became assistant to glass artist Steffen Dam and Micha Karslund. Jennifer earned her Master of Fine Arts in Glass from the Rochester Institute of Technology, within the School for American Crafts. She was a Resident Artist at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in fall 2010, and a Visiting Scholar within the glass department at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale spring 2011.
Jennifer is an Assistant Professor at Ball State University within the Marilyn K. Glick Centre for Glass, in Muncie, Indiana. Her work has been featured in New Glass Review 35 and 32, published by the Corning Museum of Glass and was exhibited at SOFA Chicago, fall 2013. Jennifer Halvorson’s sculptures revolve around objects that are manipulated and collaged to express emotions that occur within the individual.

5pm Choi Kee Ryong

Choi Kee Ryong, a PhD student and tutor in Glass at Edinburgh College of Art

The primary aim of this research is to explore the ambiguity inherent in an individual’s cultural interpretation by attempting to stimulate a state of uncanniness. Choi's aim is to examine how to use this information as a vehicle to interrogate aesthetic emotions.

He believes that by learning how he might create an opportunity to induce a cultural uncanny state and provoke a range of sensitivities and feelings, he will gain a powerful tool in his artistic practice so that he can further promote an awareness of stereotyping in an individual’s cultural understanding.
