Tuesday Talks: Simon Faithfull
Tue 21 March 2017, 12:30 – 14:00 GMT
Join us for a free talk by artist Simon Faithfull on Tuesday 21 March, 12:30pm-2pm. Free, booking essential.
Simon Faithfull's work has been described as an attempt to understand and explore the planet as a sculptural object, to test its limits and report back from its extremities. Within his work - ranging from video, to digital drawing, installation and writing - Faithfull often teams up with scientists, technicians and transmission experts to help him bring back a personal vision from the ends of the world. Recent projects include a film featuring the artist walking through a burning jet plane, a video recording the artist walking through a landscape at the bottom of the sea (created through the help of a scuba diving expert and underwater cameras), and setting alight and sinking a small fishing boat off Dorset coast to create, over time, an artificial reef. Faithfull was born in Braziers Park, a utopian community in Oxfordshire, and lives in Berlin.
