People who have saved this event:


This public event, a live performance, is taking place as part of artist’s Kate Turner and Alex McNamee’s collaborative work for the exhibition ‘Supermarket Sweep’ at Oriel Wrexham's PERICLO gallery.


Kate Turner & Alex McNamee's drawings borrow a mixture of techniques, from digital design to material collage.

This event will focus on their use of the classical Japanese printing technique Gyotaku (fish printing). Japanese fishermen first practised the art of Gyotaku in the mid 1800’s; they inked up their prize fish and by pressing the flesh on paper created a print. These prints would be proof and mementos of their successful catch.

To explore further this flow between image as data and food as art material please join us for a talk in three parts. First, a discussion about the different varieties of fish: their taste and appearance. The fish will then be printed with edible black squid ink in the traditional Gyotaku style. To conclude, the fish will be grilled and served with chips to the audience.
