Textual bodies: Online Studio Visit with Adam Walker
28th of July 2020 | 12 pm – 1 pm (BST) / 11 am – 12 pm (UTC)
RCA SoAH Research Online
Adam Walker will show current and recent performances, texts, moving-image and digital projects, sharing his ongoing critical exploration of the relationship between the human and abstracting, increasingly textual structures affecting contemporary life. In conversation with curator Hang Li, Adam will discuss the urgent need for speculative profferings of other ways of being in addressing and contesting self-perpetuating structures of inequality. Our human messiness, irrationality, desire and relationality will be considered in both vulnerability and also the potential for resistant agency. The studio visit will respond to the interests of those who attend, with questions and comments being welcome.
Adam Walker’s recent projects, performances and exhibitions have taken place at and with the Serpentine Gallery, NEoN Digital Arts Festival and Tyneside Cinema (UK), Izolyatsia and Yermilov Centre (Ukraine) and online at www.skelf.org.uk. He is soon to complete his PhD at the Royal College of Art.
Textual bodies: Online Studio Visit with Adam Walker is part of Sense-making for sharing sensibilities, a one day event presented by SoAH Research organised by Hang Li for In the Realm of Re-Sensing 21 – 28 July 2020, RCA SoAH Online.
