Janice Kerbel (b. 1969, Canada) lives and works in London, UK. Kerbel has explored a recurring theme of communication (and sometimes its absence) in the form of print, performance, light and most recently sound. She was a Sobey Art Award finalist in 2006 and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2015 for her performative work DOUG (2015), a nine-part song cycle performed by six singers. She has held teaching positions at the Slade School of Fine Art and is currently Professor at Goldsmiths College.
12.00- 1pm Artist Janice Kerbel will talk about her practice which borrows from conventional modes of narrative in order to create elaborate imagined forms.
2- 5.15pm Janice will then lead us in a workshop exploring how narrative can be orchestrated and constructed within work. Particularly working around the area of performance and paper-based work, finding links between methods of scoring and acts of performance.
