/dɪˈreɪl/ : An Artist Talk
5 December, 2017, 7pm
Derailed is an artist talk by current project key holder Kristina Chan. It features large-scale panelled prints derived from a discovered train wreck. These works are part of a developing series exploring the ideas of shelter and the repercussions when these preconceptions fail us.
Kristina’s work is a culmination and accumulation into site specific history to depict socio-cultural entropic narratives. They explore the correlation between architecture and sculptural landscapes of derelict and disused spaces. I seek sites where the intersection between function and intention have fallen into decline and disrepair, where untold histories recount themselves, in all their brevity, satire, beauty, and collapse.
Please join us at East London Printmakers on 5th December at 7pm, where Kristina will speak about her artistic and material practice, as well as the inspirations and exploration behind these works.
East London Printmakers is pleased to announce the next instalment of their Artist Talk Series. Keyholder Fiona Fouhy presents ‘Scratching the surface: explorations in chalk’ where she will be discussing the current themes in her work, covering ‘a sense of place’, history, geology and a smattering of neuroscience. She will also be discussing her printing techniques in monoprinting and photopolymer.
The talk is a free event that will take place at the ELP studios, 18th July, beginning at 7pm. Everybody welcome.
Join us in the studio on Monday the 27th February for one of our Artist Talk Series with current ELP Artist in Residence, Nica Harrison.
