Aidan MoesbyArtist, Project manager, Arts development worker, Writer, Lecturer / academic
As a socially engaged/responsive artist my process is research-based around dialogues and conversations. These may be spoken, observed, forensic or creative. Focused on memory and identity both from a cultural and personal viewpoint, I am fascinated by how we communicate and connect. From this research-based approach to relationships between people and place - often through the distillation of intimate, concealed histories - I produce text based responsive interventions in which the works serve as the pivot/axis/catalyst for a personal or communal exploration through an internal or socially active/engaged conversation. I utilise a range of media to execute my work, employing sensitivity to the nature and function of the location. The context dictates which material/s I use and how I fabricate.
