CAST Café food from 6.30pm, something hot and something sweet for £6.50

Helen Sear's work explores the materiality of vision, often combining hand-drawn or erased elements with photography to disrupt the conventional fixed-point perspective associated with the medium. She also works with moving image and mixed media installations. In this talk Sear will present both still and moving image work, including work from the recent exhibition The Moon and a Smile, commissioned by Glynn Vivian gallery.

Sear's work came to prominence in the 1991 British Council exhibition De-Composition: Constructed Photography in Britain, which toured extensively throughout Latin America and Eastern Europe. She was the first woman to represent Wales with a solo exhibition at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015 and is currently working with the Forestry Commission in Dalby and Crescent Arts Scarborough, developing her Wales in Venice exhibition with a new video work that will premier in May 2018. 

This talk has been programmed by Making Time Collective.
