Christian Noelle Charles

For this episode I went to chat with Christian Noelle Charles during her Creative Lab Residency at CCA. CC’s practice uses performance, video and sound to explore ideas of self-love and self-knowledge, often making use of intuitive or improvised techniques.

Through our conversation we touch upon how artistic practice can give joy to ourselves and audiences, whilst opening up paths to new ways of understanding and portraying ourselves in cultures where our identities are never entirely our own. Over the course of our chat CC argues that impulsivity and improvisation are important tools in resisting the pressures to self-edit our personalities for the social stage.

About Studio Lunches

Studio Lunches is an autonomous podcast project, supported by CCA. Its goal is to open up artists’ practices within Glasgow through conversation, exploring the diverse, obscure and intriguing interests that reside at the heart of this. The artists may be Glasgow-based or have exhibited within Glasgow at some point, influencing or being influenced by the community they find themselves in.

Studio Lunches is not intended to offer a singular vision on creative activity within the city, instead its aim is to celebrate the wide (and occasionally conflicting) variety of creative practices that continually re-shape, progress and challenge the artistic community here.
