Artist Talk: Roger Hiorns

Wednesday 19 February 2014, 17:30 to 19:00

Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been postponed until further notice. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Join artist Roger Hiorns as part of the Art in the City series of lectures. Roger Hiorns is concerned with how we sustain materiality, how we can translate substance, propose new technological surface, and even insult objects.  

He uses unlikely materials from brains, to copper sulphate crystals to transform found objects or even change architectural spaces into extraordinary new forms, where the familiar is remodeled into what he describes as 'possibilities of an inconsistent future'.  

From his seminal work Seizure-which was recently re-installed at a new architectural space in Yorkshire Sculpture Park- to his major new work in Bristol, Hiorns will talk about his practice, followed by a discussion with critic and ArtReview Associate Editor JJ Charlesworth.
