RA Schools Symposium Supported by the David Lean Foundation
With Lucy Skaer, Angie Keefer, Nina Power, Cally Spooner and Natasha Soobramanien.
This was a one-day symposium dealing with the management of reading. Far from attempting to isolate writing as an autonomous (art) practice, the speakers addressed the linguistic ‘poiesis’ (making) as a model, or common denominator for constructions which may bind artistic practises to other things, places and professions.
Language is a material that “every one who ever has or is or will be living” produces for the same means and ends: we all read, write, speak and listen to maintain the inter-dependency of our various occupations.
