Closing Event - Paula MacArthur and Anna McNay In Conversation
Join us for an informal discussion between the artist and arts writer Anna McNay.
Anna McNay is an arts writer and curator with a background in linguistics. Most recently she has been assistant editor for Art Quarterly (ArtFund) and writer for online arts journal Studio International as well as Arts Editor for DIVA magazine. She has been a contributor to a-n interface, Elephant, the Mail on Sunday, the Guardian and many other publications.
Paula MacArthur first met Danish artist, Tine Louise Kortermand, in 2016 when they shared an exhibition space in Brooklyn. It is the resonance of objects that connects these two artists.
Tine created her Resound songs in response to problems and worries shared with her; using an object - a toy camera, a xylophone & even hair - offered by each participant as a starting point to create sound and act as inspiration for each song. Tine had the tongue in cheek idea that each song would provide some kind of magical solution or relief to these problems in a kind of pseudo therapeutic way.
Paula paints in the tradition of momento mori. Objects are often found in museums, loaded with the meanings bestowed upon them by the maker or museum curator & by their perceived financial, historical & aesthetic value. Sometimes objects are found closer to home & included in this exhibition are paintings inspired by headboard of her carved wooden bed.
