Lighthouse are thrilled to be welcoming Australian artist, Lynette Wallworth as the speaker for our May Monthly talk, which takes place just before the launch of Brighton Festival 2011.
Lighthouse are proud to be presenting the UK premiere of Lynette Wallworth's installation, Evolution of Fearlessness in partnership with the University of Brighton as part of Brighton Festival, which is this year guest directed by Nobel Peace Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi.
Lynette Wallworth's artistic practice spans digital media, video installation, photography and film. Her work has been presented at the Auckland Triennial, Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Sydney festival as well as being exhibited internationally from Arnolfini, The Young Vic and Festival d'Aix en Provence in Europe to New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in the United States.
For her Monthly Talk at Lighthouse, Lynette will talk about the full range of her practice, including her responsive environments, which lead visitors to transcend their everyday selves and to connect with universal themes that include and describe their own existence. Always experimenting with the newest digital technologies, Wallworth's ability to build a sense of community and compassion with these tools is startling. Beauty, revelation and wonder are celebrated in her works, fusing mind and body through the fundamental means of the haptic and the optic, light and touch.
