If you missed Keith Harrisons's talk about his interdisciplinary, collaborative practice then please take the opportunity to listen again. This talk was part of Art in the City a series organised by Arnolfini, Bristol City Council, Spike Island and the University of the West of England.
Since graduating from the RCA in 2002 Keith Harrison has established an interdisciplinary collaborative practice involved with the transformation of materials, to unpredictable effect, in a series of process-based, public experiments. Large-scale works have attempted to permanently change the properties of materials, or our perception of them. Harrison’s work is permeated with an awareness of social issues: the relation with audience; the value of artefacts; references to popular music and social housing. His works are often actively formed by the influence of collaborators and in this lecture Harrison will talk about this influence and recent projects including creating sculptures for skateboarders to use, submitting ceramics to the grindcore onslaught of Napalm Death or Will Gregory of Goldfrapp composing music for monumental concrete blocks that will be dumped in the sea.
