Neither Use Nor Ornament Talk with Amy Hewitt
This talk discusses the reasons behind why Contemporary Art is often cast aside; by examining the Art World and its actions in where Contemporary Art is positioned in today’s society. Utilising pop culture references and humour Hewitt makes this talk suitable for any audience.
The talk will last around 40 minutes, with a chance for Q & A afterwards and an opportunity to buy some of Amy’s made things.
Date: Thursday 16 November
Time: 7pm – 8:30pm
Cost: £2.50 includes a tea / coffee / hot chocolate / hot ribena and a biscuit
More about Amy
Amy Hewitt’s practice is concerned primarily with sculpture, performance and narrative. Her work focuses upon invoking the Other through the application of the Monstrous, the Abject and the Uncanny. She engages with phenomenology of the internal and external via the investigation of surface; with a fascination for what lies outside – beyond standard perception, cognition and experience. Her work aims to give a physical form to the narrative that underpins her practice. Through a process of intuitive making Hewitt binds disparate material into otherworldly forms. Hewitt graduated with an MA in Fine Art from the University of Lincoln 2016.
