Artist Talk:Tamara Henderson

West Dean

Tickets: £0.00 (members £0.00)

17:30 - 19:00

Tamara Henderson has been selected for the CASS Projects Kiln Residency, 2018, in partnership with West Dean College. Through an instinctive approach that encompasses writing, drawing, film making and sculpture, Henderson’s work seeks to expand conventional registers of consciousness. This approach enables her to cultivate new forms of cognition and deeper-than-conscious relationships with the mind.

CASS Projects provides artists with the opportunity to research, reflect and experiment in order to develop the possibilities of their own practice. In 2015 Cass Sculpture Foundation commissioned the build of a wood fire kiln in response to the increasing number of artists using ceramics in contemporary art with rare access to this traditional kiln process. In 2018, Henderson will be a resident at West Dean College for 21 days where she will develop a new body of work to be fired in the wood-fired kiln at CASS. The work will be exhibited at Art Night, London and Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin and supported by RODEO London and Arts Council England.

At this artist's talk, Tamara will discuss the making and firing of a new body of work as well as her practice in general. The talk will take place in The Old Library at West Dean College. To book your free place please visit the West Dean College website.
