GLITCH Film Festival Daniel Baker – Artist’s Talk in Conjunction with Intermedia Exhibition
Sat 25 March 2017
The artist Daniel Baker will discuss his work in relation to his ongoing examination of Gypsy visual culture. During the talk Baker will reflect upon the influence that growing up as part of a Romani Gypsy community has had on his studio practice and its implications for his ongoing research into Gypsy aesthetics. Through his work Baker encourages us to look again at objects, narratives and persons that might usually be overlooked in order to find meanings that we might not expect. His work consciously reflects his upbringing by drawing upon a diverse range of media and process to generate dialogue between vernacular craft and contemporary art. As well as acting as a way of thinking about identity and belonging Baker’s drawing together of marginal and mainstream practices poses questions about the nature of prejudice and resistance.
This event will have BSL interpretation.
