This conversation formed part of a two-part series, Our Notion of Present is Subjective, in which artists usually separated by place considered the impact of intense immersion in shared time/space on their relationships, connections, perspectives and practice.
Talking place on 12 April 2011, for this talk Tunisian artist Ines Jerray visited Gayle Chong Kwan for a creative dialogue around ideas that cross-over and connect their work, focusing on animation as a way of exploring hybridisation, the senses, cognition, memory, context, the body and landscapes of difference.
This series was a collaboration with Visiting Arts as part of Artist to Artist International 2011. Artist to Artist provides the opportunity to bring together pairs of artists to initiate inter cultural dialogue across international borders. The structure of the programme is tailored by the artists themselves and puts the emphasis firmly on research and the exchange of ideas rather than production.
Artist to Artist is supported by Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and is co-hosted by The Delfina Foundation, London and Visiting Arts.
