Artist Talk : Almudena Romero

 

Artist Almudena Romero will be explaining her wet collodion projects, focusing on her tintype work, as well as on the commissions she has received to set up pop- up collodion darkrooms at institutions such as the V&A, the National Portrait Gallery and the University of the Arts London. Almudena will be explaining the history and the technicalities of the wet collodion process and how museums and galleries might approach the subject of teaching early processes in-house. 

Born in Madrid in 1986, Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic  processes from early printing techniques such as cyanotype, salt printing or wet plate collodion, to new technologies including 3Dscanning and printing. Since 2015,  Almudena has shown and explained her practice at TATE Modern-TATE Exchange, TATE Britain, The Photographers’ Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Whitechapel Gallery, the London Art Fair and the University of the Arts London, and delivered courses and lectures at National Portrait  Gallery, the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum, the Mapfre Foundation, the Sotheby’s  Institute of Art, University of Westminster, Kingston University and Southampton Solent University. She has also received commissions to produce installations in public spaces from Team London Bridge, Southwark Council, Emergency Exit Artist, Wellcome Trust and University College London. Her work has been published in TimeOut, DUST magazine, Uncertain States and Photomonitor.

Almudena’s practice uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology; such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism. Her work focuses on how photographic processes and technology transform the notions of public, private, individuality, identity, memory, and, in general, the concept of the individual.  Almudena’s works touch on how perception affects existence and how photographic processes contribute to organising perception.

/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.

Amrita Saraogi_The Yellow London Room Where I Learnt to be Happy Alone_Linocut (1)

Who : Amrita Saraogi

When : Friday 10th June 2016 7pm – 9:30pm

Where : East London Printmakers (RSVP)

Amrita, a printmaker from Calcutta, India, and our current resident Project Keyholder, is going to present  her work on reflective self-portraits, and her experiments with ‘cracking’ effects for etchings which she has been working on while at ELP. She has explored the relationship between the ‘self’ and space, and how space can trigger self-reflection and new ways of looking at oneself.

Amrita has trained closely under a master printmaker in Calcutta for 2 years. Her recent work largely deals with memories, and associations with private spaces such as bedrooms.

The exhibition will include a display of linocuts and etchings, amongst other media.
