Artist Talk: Kate Lyddon & Willem Weismann
Join us live at the gallery for some afternoon tea as exhibiting artists Kate Lyddon and Willem Weismann discuss their work and The Stand-Ins exhibition with Ken Paranada, Curator: Performance & Engagement.
Working across painting, drawing and sculpture, Kate Lyddon creates scenes of bodily absurdity and dark humour. A cast of characters, sometimes cartoon-like and often grotesque, enact a variety of nonsensical actions and poses. Resisting stability or repetition, Lyddon allows chance to play an active role in determining the direction in which her imagery grows.
Willem Weismann explores the possibility of paintings acting as ‘information systems’ and stores of meaning. His work explicitly makes connections to other forms of archives, both physical and virtual: the memories we carry in our heads, libraries of books, vast online stores of data, and the stratified layers of history beneath our pavements and soil.
This event is free, booking recommended. Fresh tea, coffee and little cakes will be available.
