Curator Cat Dunn speaks with artists from Crafted Selves: The Unfinished Conversation on the day of its opening at St Andrews Museum, Saturday 14 October.
Join one of two tours through the exhibition on the day, with Curator Cat Dunn speaking with artists Ashanti Harris at 2pm, and Joy Baek at 3pm. Hear the artists discuss their work in-person; what drives their craft, and how does it reflect their dual-identity as artists working in Scotland today?
Ashanti Harris is a visual artist, teacher and researcher. Her work includes dance, performance and installation and focuses on the social implications of the movements of people across cultural and historical borders.
Joy Baek is a Korean artist based in Glasgow. She uses her ceramic and metal-work installations to elevate the voices of marginalised women in Scottish and Korean society.
The exhibition Crafted Selves: The Unfinished Conversation takes its title from a continuing discourse between curator Cat Dunn and the 13 Scotland based artists featured. Working in sculpture, painting, ceramics, textiles, installation, moving image films and creative writing responses, the artists all in some way carry a dual identity. Many have a sense of their own self born from having a cultural heritage which is both Scottish and one which is rooted in another cultural home. The exhibition also explores other dualisms and expressions of identity, including artists who express their sexuality, disability, or trans and non-binary selves through their work.
