Gallery Talk:
Artists Theresa Weber & Matheus Marques Abu
in conversation with Curator Eleri Fanshawe
Saturday, 1 June, 2024
11am - 12:30pm. Entry Free
Join us for our next gallery talk with Theresa Weber and Matheus Marques Abu. The conversation explores the artists’ ideas, their practice and the new works presented in the exhibition Emergent Energies.
Through multi-disciplinary installations and collaborative performances, Theresa Weber seeks to question existing power hierarchies and fixed categorisations. Her works often refer to existing mythologies and historical research fields, which are communicated through dense collages and sculptural networks.

The paintings of Matheus Marques Abu are influenced by his ancestry, spirituality and the daily lives of those of the African diaspora in Brazil. His work reveals a personal perspective on colonial history and its reverberations in the daily lives of Black people.

The talk takes place on the gallery’s ground floor and has disabled access.

Gallery Talk:
LR Vandy in conversation with Elisabeth Lalouschek
Saturday, 27 April, 2024
3.00 – 4.30pm. Entry Free
The conversation explores Vandy’s working processes and materials, the creation of the artist’s new rope sculptures and examines her daily approach to her work in the studio. Vandy’s recent work was highly influenced by her relocation to a site adjacent to the Ropery at Chatham Historic Dock Yard – an establishment which has preserved traditional rope-making since the 19th century. The exchange will investigate the artist’s use of this versatile material as well as re-visit her series of Hull works.

The talk accompanies LR Vandy's new solo exhibtion, Twist.

The event takes place in the gallery’s ground floor and has disabled access.
