Claire TindaleArtist, Project manager, Graphic designer, Lecturer / academic
With an interdisciplinary practice, I utilise the media and format most appropriate to the ideas and concepts being expressed with outcomes varying from 2D work through to video, installation and site-specific work. Thematically the work is predominantly concerned with exploring the workings of the human mind, in all its guises, whether it is an examination of the idiosyncrasies of the English language or an exploration of psychological or neurological disorders such as obsessive behaviour or dementia. At times found objects with their inherent resonance act as the catalyst for a piece of work, as is the case with 'Memory Loss', a limited edition artist book based on a found photograph album. This piece of work provoked further research into dementia and galvanised ideas for a new and expanding body of work, shown in the solo exhibition, 'Going Nowhere' in Bank St Arts Gallery, Sheffield. With an interest in revealing the extraordinary in the ordinary, objects may be interpreted, manipulated or juxtaposed to investigate the potential of emerging narratives. By subtly disrupting the familiar in this way, new meaning is conveyed. A copy of 'Memory Loss' is held in the Tate Special Collection in London. Claire Tindale is an artist, designer and educator. read full statement
