Event description

Description

As part of the LU Arts Artist in Residency programme, artist Ian Nesbitt was invited to spend time at the University and develop a new work that engaged with the context of the campus, whether that be the physical space or the activity that went on within it.

'Care notes' takes a wide-ranging approach to the physical and metaphysical spaces of what students and staff refer to as ‘the Loughborough Bubble’ as its context to explore geographies of care. The University functions on a careful matrix of care ranging from the support services that are provided by the university, to the off-campus support for community initiatives via Action projects, to the care for physical aspects of the campus delivered by cleaners and gardeners. Ian’s film has engaged with staff and students whose role involves some form of caring but also seeks to shed light on much broader questions of what care might mean.

Based on the physical act of walking around the campus boundary with students and staff, the film uses these site-specific conversations as a vehicle for talking about receiving and giving care and support (looking outside/looking inside). As well as a literal peek into how ideas of care and support help campus life to function successfully, ideas raised in the film, regarding what a body/community/society does or doesn't need from 'outside' to function successfully, also bring the B-R-E-X-I-T word to mind, very much at the front of everyones’ minds during the filmmaking process.

The film will be accompanied by a discussion involving some of the individuals involved in the film, using the issues around care at Loughborough to discuss wider issues around care that are of interest to academics and practitioners.
