Can exploring experiences of loss and grief, through an autobiographical lens, offer artists a way to connect with audiences, themselves and each other after nearly two-years of pandemic isolation? Artist and writer Morgan Quaintance will talk through his own process of using personal experiences, discussing the benefits and personal hazards of mining what might be identified as depressive emotional states, to create work that facilitates positive and potentially supportive relationships and new interpersonal connections.
Roo Dhissou and Sahjan Kooner have created a dreamlike exhibition that weaves narratives through the lens of North India. The work travels from a cyborg in Punjab through to a black hole at the centre of the galaxy. Recurrent ideas of the celestial, community and migratory are transformed through craft based practices and digital environments.
