This Feedback session happened during week 3 of the lockdown on the eve of the announcement that we will in fact be in lock down for a further 3 weeks (at least). This had a heavy influence on the experiences we were bringing to the table when discussing each other’s work.
Review of Technical-Adjacent written by Pinkxbrains (member of Art Press collective) as part of a week long work experience placement at Turf.
At first, Technical-Adjacent FOR ME was confusion.
What do we do when our bodies diverge from what is considered the norm? How do we as visual artists translate emotions, feelings and reactions that occur in the body? What are the possibilities and the limitations of sight?
Among the myriad of biscuits and cups of tea and coffee, the writing special of Turf’s Lunchtime Feedback began. Unfortunately the biscuits were not to my liking at all (sorry Holly), but the excitement of being able to be gifted with art to consume and feedback on was enough to sustain me for the whole session.
