Sensuous Landscapes | talk hosted by Samuel Hertz | The Tetley, Leeds | 16/02/18

A public conversation event hosted by Samuel Hertz, Opera North Artist in Residence at The Tetley also featuring Amy Cutler.

For this talk I respond to the provocation ‘Sensuous Landscapes’ by considering problems of scale, perception and feeling as played out in my earlier series of bird works.

I’m currently revisiting this material, using it to think through the difficulty of feeling or perceiving the magnitude of the global environmental crisis and its associated mass extinctions. Drawing on a set on unexpected insights about theatricality, furniture and irritation, I seek to register a deep entanglement, or entrenchment, within economies of consumption.

Further iterations of this work planned for an upcoming episode of The Verb, BBC Radio 3 and Bucharest International Poetry Festival, May 2018.
