Sharon Kivland instigated a call for agents to research in Leeds College of Art library on her behalf. The culmination of the project was a closing event, documented here: Rebecca Lowe. The research I undertook can be seen here (I was looking for the mucky pictures in the library): Flickr
I’ve put together a selection of videos to be screened at S1 Artspace, Thu 20 Feb, 6 – 8pm:
Alison J Carr | Lindsay Foster | Alexis Hudgins | Stephanie Owens | Isabella Streffen | Katy Woods
S1 Artspace is pleased to present You Me You Me You Me, a screening of six short video works which will be followed by a discussion between artists Alison J Carr and Lindsay Foster.
In this screening, S1 Studio Holder, Alison J Carr, selected Lindsay Foster’s The Last Frontier as a starting point alongside which she presents four additional works: Notes on You and Me by Alexis Hudgins, The Pulse of Madame K by Isabella Streffen, Nadia by Katy Woods, and her own A Response to Unmastered by Katherine Angel; inviting Foster to select a final piece to sit alongside her own: Making A Past Present by Stephanie Owens.
The videos take different approaches to reflect on personal experiences and collective memories, on images and language and how we find ourselves formed through our encounters with culture. Across the selection are witty, playful observations as well as sincere enquiries. What is it to be a person?
Alexis Hudgins, Notes on You & Me, 2010
