Printmaking Process as a State of Becoming

25 April 2013, 6.30pm, Tickets £3 each or £5 for 2


Booking is essential as spaces are limited, even for free admission tickets.

This lecture by Mary Modeen, an artist and academic at the University of Dundee, will focus on the actual practices involved in making various types of prints, the matrices and the proofing, the development and construction of a printed image, as aligned to philosophical models of ‘becoming’. She will illustrate this with prints and photographs of working processes. Phenomenological and aesthetic considerations of this staged series of steps, Modeen suggests, links to many philosophers, and would include as well as the ‘becoming’, the ‘always already’, and the opening out of Barthian suggestions of the work of the viewer as well. What this way of thinking about prints will suggest is a more fluid concept of printmaking as evidence of ‘the thinking hand’, offering material scope for further meditations.
