Artist presentation of the guest teacher Kayle Brandon
Donnerstag 07.04.2016, 18:00 Uhr im großen Theorieraum
Kayle Brandon works in public and social contexts, producing collaborative and process-centred works which critically relate to spatial and social situations. She is interested in art’s role in the exploration of daily life, individual agency, place, ecology and social politics. Brandon’s projects take the form of events, publications and installations that incorporate a mix of mediums; from drawings, object assemblages, to DIY drinks. She exhibits internationally, appearing in shows at Science Gallery Dublin Ireland, The New Museum in New York and Spike Island, Bristol UK.
This talk will introduce the artist works with a focus on the methods intrinsic to her process.
Department of Divination and Walking
The department of divination and walking begins by looking into the spatial and social relations neighbouring the university; by undertake a series of outings which explore how we observe, effect and engage in environments. The department finds ways into space that can benefit and provoke artist practice in a loose and experimental manner, using research methods such as divination, drift, walking, cartography and fishing to decipher and ponder the landscape. Out of the outings a collection of artist tools and aids will arise that can ferment, ground and tangle process centred art works.
Interdisciplinary course with Kayle Brandon, open to all students.
First excursion Wednesday, April 6 from 10am until 1pm (Meet at front entrance)
