Alistair Owen in conversation with Gordon Dalton


To conclude our current If.... season of exhibitions, our current exhibiting artist Alistair Owen will be discussing his practice with Artist and Curator Gordon Dalton. Alistair and Gordon will be using the opportunity to discuss Alistair's recent explorations into liminality, particularly liminal spaces and temporary states of flux. Alistair uses deliberately utilitarian materials to create sculptural interventions to a variety of spaces, often using materials that contradict the purposes of the object, for example a seemingly cardboard vegetable box can later be found to be made from solid bronze, likewise a shelving unit can be found to be made from delicate cardboard. Continuality between object, space and person is is something Alistair tries to understand, explain and explore in his practice. His work encourages questions about the perception of the presented space, material or objects that surround the viewer. Attendance to the talk is free, however places are limited.
