Residencies Studio Sessions: Artist Talk by Jamie North

Description

29 Nov 2017, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM Studio #01-02, Block 37 Malan Road

Central to the artistic practice of Jamie North is the persistent observation of the built environment and its relationship with natural habitats. Departing from his latest experiments with concrete and endemic plants developed during the residency, North will trace the trajectories and shifts in his practice: from the photographic documentation of plants and their survival strategies in man-made environments to his current interest in construction materials. North’s hybrid sculptures create forms of coexistence between plants and cast concrete, as well as several by-products of industrial production, leading to the creation of poetic installations that merge the animate and the inanimate. Sharing a family history with the mining and construction industries, his works also reveal the artist’s personal interest in the rise and decline of industries and their economic and social impacts. The talk will take place in the artist’s studio.
