Artist Talk - Andrew Livingstone / Anne Vibeke Mou

Free Artist Talks Series

A series of free talks given by professionals working in the glass and ceramics field.

Please note: These talks will take place in Lecture Theatre 007, St Peter’s Campus, University of Sunderland.

No need to book

Andrew Livingstone's talk will explore his research area which is focused on ceramics in the widest sense engaging with material, process and the social contexts in which ceramics operate. He will discuss the familiarity of ceramic material and object, which take centre stage within his research, a location where both the handmade and readymade are employed within both installation and conceptual applications. Examples of his practice will be explored with reference to the expanded field of ceramics and investigation into the employment of and interface between digital media, film, animation, photography and non-ceramic intervention.

Anne Vibeke will discuss her artistic practice, which involves drawings and engravings on glass. This measured, almost ritualistic approach to making explores how materials may effect a momentary suspension in the dialectics of change, entropy and fix, for a time, process and narrative.The making of her drawings involves the application of marks on a surface following a rigidly defined system. Images often evolve intuitively from this process emerging over lengthy periods of time. Intense repetition of tiny individual marks reveals a paradoxical collision of the apocalyptic with the sublime.
