Bursary Artists: In Conversation

paint roller, Lily Johnson, 2013.

Join us for a talk and a drink with Artsadmin’s current bursary artists, Reynir Hutber, Rosana Cade and Lily Johnson, as they each introduce ideas around their practice, as well as past and future projects at this mid-point of their bursary.

This event is part of a series of bursary In Conversation events, and will be followed by a second event on 18 February 2015 with Lucy Hutson, Project O, Martin O’Brien and Rosalie Schweiker.

Chaired by Manick Govinda.

Reynir Hutber works across a range of mediums including live art, installation, sculpture and new media. A critical use of digital technology is often central to Hutber’s practice, as is a desire to explore concerns around authenticity, visibility, and disempowerment. He often makes use of the malleability of digital information to create treacherous performance ‘documents’ that display acts of impossible endurance and disingenuous vulnerability.

Rosana Cade mainly works in live performance and roots her identity, practice and politics in a queer discourse. The form of her performances vary and tend to respond to each individual process. She has made intimate work for one audience member at a time, worked with groups of non-performing participants in different cities, worked with family members, created studio based performances both as herself and in various personas, and performed in multiple guises in cabaret and club settings. Through all of her performance work, including (especially) the everyday performance of herself, she aims to disrupt heteronormative ideas about gender and sexuality.

Lily Johnson’s work is about certain things leaking through. She uses drawing, word play and object making to develop performances, often as a response to a specific, idiosyncratic site. Worked out in relation to audience, architecture and situation, the performances often involve a costumed figure hiding, moving slowly, not speaking, inhabiting the space.

Artsadmin’s Artists’ Bursary Scheme has been running since 1996 and has supported over 200 artists working individually or collaboratively in contemporary performance practices. Artsadmin’s Artists’ Bursary Scheme 2014/2015 is generously supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
