Fine Art Research Unit (FARU) Talk : AA2A Artists' UpdateEvents — Public Talk COS 313 & Microsoft Teams
25 January 2023, 14:00
We are delighted to invite this year's AA2A artists back to kick off this trimester's series of FARU artist talks. They will each present a brief update on their projects in progress that they are developing at CSA over this year. All welcome.
Shaista is focusing on extending her 'Moving Beyond Hate' series through a series of printmaking experiments. The project is rooted in the physical and metaphorical act of transformation through the reuse of Islamophobic books she has collected in her study of anti-Muslim hate. In the transgressive act of tearing out the pages of these books and re-using them with purpose, she engages in a process of speaking back on her own terms.
Lawrence has been experimenting with a range of sound recording equipment from the media store, using the workshops and laser cutters in a mission to make encaustic tiles which were popular in medieval times, and spending time in the library thinking about personalisation vs shared experience.
Lisa has begun taking photographs, to consider how objects made in contemporary society contrast to how things were made in prehistoric times. She's excited about 3d scanning one of her pots and recreating it in the 3d printer with resin. She has also curated an exhibition for a collaborative drawing project., She will share work she has started on a second collaborative, project which she will invite ARU students to participate in.
Ian has been working in filmmaking and with puppets to queer linear depictions of English history. He is looking to collaborate with ARU students in February to film an abridged version of Edward II, a story about a gay 13th century king.
The AA2A project (Artists Access 2 Art school) is a national set of schemes, providing visual artists and designer makers with the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project, using workshop and supporting facilities in fine art and design departments in Higher Education institutions in the UK.
