Wednesday 20 March, 7.00 - 8.30pm
Notes on Self-Reflection
Artist Emma Talbot talks about narratives of self-reflection in her own work and gives a context to her ideas through looking at artists and writers whose use of personal subject matter closes the space between life experience and the making of artworks.
The talk will examine ideas of the self-reliant individual voice and acts of personal recounting, by looking at the use of direct drawings and reflective texts in visual artwork to openly relate anecdotes (In Greek: ‘unpublished’, literally ‘not given out’). With a particular focus on the interweaving of the personal with the poetic, Talbot will also discuss the experience of relationships as subject matter including Iannone and Dieter Roth, Anais Nin and Henry Miller, Hans Bellmer and Unica Zurn.
Emma Talbot is an artist whose recent exhibitions include ‘The Life of The Mind’ The New Art Gallery Walsall 2011, ‘Me and My Shadow’ Kate MacGarry 2011, ‘You Would Cry Too If It Happened to You’ Galerie Kusseneers, Antwerp 2011 and ‘Bad Objects and Little Deaths’ Transition Gallery London 2012.
