In the upcoming artist talk “Our Shapes of Kinship”, artists Aki Hassan and Esther McManus explore the idea of visual kinship through their practices of experimental comics, drawings and sculpture. The artists examine their processes of interpreting, simplifying and reconstructing a subject, as a way of complicating our relationship with reading visual cues. How do we ensure that the drawn lines illustrate and embody the knowledge we explore? The artists will unpack the value, meaning and time they have given to lines and forms, further informing the empathy and sympathy of the marks they make.
This talk feeds into Aki’s micro-processes, as we look at how experimental comics have influenced their visual vocabulary and the presentation of Entangled Attachments at Yeo Workshop.
In addition to hearing from the artist and discussing the work on view, the programme will include a 30-minute exhibition activation (experimental sound and interaction) by the artist.
