I have a chapter in this forthcoming book, which features work by artists selected for the first year of the Freelands Artist Programme. The book launch is being held online on 17th February 2021.
Alongside excellent, insightful critical writing by curator Edward Ball, contributors to the book write about, and create visual works reflecting on, topics such as the materiality of media, historical memory, and the performance of identity. Details of the book launch event can be found below.
Join us for an evening of online readings and performances to celebrate the launch of Old Land New Waters.
This new publication celebrates two years of activity by the first cohort of artists participating in the Freelands Artist Programme. Old Land New Waters is a slowly unfolding and intimate conversation with a broad range of artistic practices from across the UK. The volume takes its title from an installation by the Vietnamese filmmaker and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha and is influenced by her wider body of work.
This launch event has been conceived as an online broadcast. Contributing artists and writers from the book will be presenting short readings, films and performances. The evening will be introduced by the publication editor and Freelands Artist Programme Curator, Edward Ball.
