Join us at Fotogalleriet for a performative talk by the artist Lindsay Seers. The audience will have a chance to affect the direction of the talk as Seers elaborates on issues at the fore of her current investigations.
Seers is know internationally for her ambitious, large scale works which combine photography, performance, video, animation, sculpture and installation. Currently in Oslo on residence with PRAKSIS, she has been researching alongside a cross-disciplinary group of fellow residents towards her episodic work, Nowhere Less Now. This work focuses on unusual individual life-stories, and in particular on the ways that biographical narratives may converge, develop, and diverge at particular moments in time. The outcome of this research will be presented at Fotogalleriet in 2018.
