Event description

Description


Replaced Lives private viewing and reception 6-8pm. All Welcome!

Printmaking is a global art form that makes and plays with multiples and series. It is a means for reproduction that has many different uses and connotations, and responds to a need to duplicate, transfer and translate.

For these reasons, Birkbeck Research in Aesthetics of Kinship and Community (BRAKC) commissioned four artist printmakers who share the same studio, to create a unique visual response to their conference’s theme of ‘Replacement’. All four artists explored one aspect in the drama of replacement - that of replaced lives.

Jan Bastow depicts the dramatic impact of technology and worldwide mass communication on the lives of four generations of women. Catherine Guy-Murrell reframes viewpoints to emphasise multiple perspectives in the mechanics of perception. Ros Ingham uses metaphors to comment on both continuity and change in our links to the past and our relationship to objects. Trish Roberts’ work reveals a very personal WWI story: the tragic death of a wife and mother whose sudden disappearance and replacement had consequences still in evidence today.

Working in 2D and 3D, on paper, textiles and ceramics, the artists have used new and more traditional printmaking techniques that conjure up hidden layers, shapes and textures. As a result each print is both unique and original, deliberately created for the part it must play in reflecting intense narratives and changing states of being.
