AboutAs part of a programme of residencies that offer Wales-based artists a studio and curatorial dialogue, INTERFERENCE continues in March with Samuel Hasler.
In the lead up to the launch of his first published work, O, A Prayer Book, Samuel will be opening up his studio practice to the public. In this temporary studio Samuel will present the imagery and processes that sit alongside his writing. In this, there is a precarious balance between fact and fiction; the writing and performances manipulate the mythology of the âwild bohemian' artist at work. In his draughty garret, with cigarettes, absinthe, and a waste-paper bin overflowing with failed manuscripts, the studio is not just his daily working environment but a place to indulge in and critique these spurious fantasies.
From Friday 28 March Sunday 30 March there will also be a series of events in collaboration with Book Works publishers to mark the launch of Samuel's first published work.
Samuel Hasler lives and works in Cardiff. His approach to making artwork is varied, it includes writing, performance, printmaking and installations. He has recently presented work with Book Works (London), The Whitstable Biennale, Spike Island (Bristol), and The Arnolfini (Bristol).
Book Works is an art commissioning organisation specialising in artists' books, spoken word and printed matter, dedicated to supporting new work by emerging artists.
O, A Prayer Book is published by Book Works and funded by the Arts Council of Wales.
