Emily Hartley-Skudder: Artist Talk

Sun 20 Sep 10:30 a.m.

Free | Bookings essential

Join artist Emily Hartley-Skudder in conversation with curator Grace Ryder to discuss her site-specific installation, Petting Aggression.

Transforming The Dowse Window into a bathroom / showroom / beauty salon, Petting Aggression presents an unsettling mix of clinical and childlike aesthetics, commenting on the politics and pathologising of the female body.

Speaking about this installation, Emily will discuss the impact of her experiences on residency in China in 2018, written about here, as the catalyst for a shift in her practice toward overt explorations of feminine aesthetics and the relationship these propose with the female body.


Emily Hartley-Skudder: Petting Aggression is on until 27 September.
