Transmission - Fine Art Lecture Series with Sarah Tripp
Transmission: ZERO HOURS: What Artists Do
This year the series follows this collaboration to consider Art Sheffield’s theme of ZERO HOURS, adding the sub-title: what artists do. Artists may be on call with no set minimum hours, but at whose call? What is on-call time, stand-by time, or down-time for an artist? How does an artist clock-off? How might we be sure an artist is working?
Chair: Sharon Kivland
Speaker: Sarah Tripp
Sarah is an artist who writes and makes films. She teaches Fine Art on the MFA at Glasgow School of Art and is a visiting tutor at Goldsmiths. She co-produces an artist-led journal of art writing called Gnommero, and the festival of art and writing What we make with words. In 2013 she was commissioned by Camden Arts Centre, London to produce the film 24 Stops, which was developed while in residency at Camden in June. In 2014 she will have a book published by Book Works, London. She is concerned with the construction or character through our use to objects, space. and time. Tripp’s work evokes the desire for – and escape from – consistent character. Her works often draw on direct observation and choreograph disparate objects displaying episodic, narrative, and percussive traits.
