Kennedy Visiting Artist Rebecca French & Andrew Mottershead

Event Type: Lecture
Facility: Fine Arts Hall (FAH)
Presented By: School of Art & Art History
Description: 
Creating multi-artform experiences that are as playful and poetic as they are subversive, French & Mottershead invite participants to think again about who they are, and their ties to place and one 
another. 

Over the past 18 years French & Mottershead have developed a substantial body of socially-engaged, visual and participatory projects in site-specific contexts and locations. They have also 
shown work in galleries across the UK and internationally, including Tate Modern; The Photographers Gallery; Salt, Istanbul; Centro Cultural São Paulo; and Perth Institute of Contemporary 
Art (PiCA). 

Video, performance, photography and sound are used to create tangible narratives borne out of rigorous research,working with experts to harness knowledge on a chosen subject. The roles of 
participants are frequently directed and framed, inviting them to become active collaborators in artworks that disturb and develop their sense of self.
