ON ART / UPCOMING EVENTS



IN THE ROUND / POLITICS OF MEMORY WORKSHOP PRESENTATION

As part of To Become Two, Alex Martinis Roe led Politics of Memory, a 2-week workshop designed for UniSA students to examine the politics of storytelling in contemporary art practice and the effects of different kinds of historiographic methods across a range of media, including video installation, documentary film, archival display and sculptural memorial.

In the Round will present the artworks developed through the workshop by participating students Teresa Busuttil, Sally Craven, Lucy Keatch, Izzi Selfe and Miriam Sims.

Facilitated by Joanna Kitto and Frances Barrett, this work-in-progress showing will be an intimate extension of the students process and learning, and continue their shared conversations around the politics of storytelling.

breathbreadth

Isabel Margot is an artist and poet working with sound, performance, video, image, installation, sculpture and text. Adopting a fluid, hybrid and time-based practice that aims to evade definitive confines, her work interrogates tensions, embodied listening, points of encounter between seemingly opposed entities, instabilities and notions of disclosure and withholding.

Through an exploration of space, personal/public narratives, archives, identity, gender, corporeality, and the techno-human interface, she seeks to question and subvert dichotomous relationality.
