Now it’s time for the last lecture in the series Hybrid Printmaking: Hilary Powell
October 18 oktober at 17.30-19.00 the last lecture will take place, a collaboration with Grafikens Hus.
Hilary Powell makes work that moves across media and demolition sites, in and out of scrap yards and academia remaining paradoxically consistent in its investigation of change, transformation and construction/destruction (of atmospheres, sites, materials and visions).
From film and book production to performance and print, Hilary Powell works with overlooked processes, materials, people and places in unexpected ways. She is currently Leverhulme Artist in Residence in UCL Chemistry experimenting with urban alchemy putting reclaimed industrial materials to use by reimagining traditional print techniques. Her recent practice involves collaborative acts of making from a public production line, making a pop-up book now collected by V&A, Poetry Library and MoMA, to recent experiments with ‘urban alchemy’ putting reclaimed industrial materials to use by reimagining traditional print techniques. From hidden histories to forgotten techniques, the core of her practice is imaginative salvage, placing value on the overlooked and seemingly mundane and highlighting and creating the extraordinary in the everyday.
Hilary Powell is based in The Netherlands (Utrecht Hogeschool voor de kunsten) and Prague (DAMU theatre academy). Hilary Powell has a BfA in Fine Art from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University and an MA in Scenography (Central St Martins School of Art and Design). She has a PhD in Cultural Studies from Goldsmith’s College, University of London, has been an Honorary Fellow at the London Consortium.
