-About the Art’s Possible Worlds –
Beech will discuss the overarching themes of her work, concentrating on the possibilities for a realist art, what this would mean, and how it ought to function. To address this theme, she will concentrate on and screen specific video works that have explored the relation between image, site and location, as well as the philosophical questions regarding the nature of our reality that produce these relations. In other words, Beech’s lecture will ask what role our conception of the world plays in our notions of place? How might the construction of an artwork that takes this into account behave as a location in itself?
