Vincula – Slade/UCL Art Museum exhibition


[ Music ] ^M00:00:09>>Estelle Holland: My idea of taking part
in this project was as a way to spend more time working in the print studio, which I’m
doing in my own sort of everyday practice. I was looking at a specific book of prints
made by ex-Slade students from the, like [background noise] early 40’s onwards. And in it were
these prints by Richard Hamilton that he’d made in his final year at the Slade, and they
are — I just found them incredibly interesting from the get go and I kind of felt like I
wanted to learn more about them. Wanting to really explore printing and its different
techniques, which is essentially what Hamilton was doing, as well. So it’s sort of mirroring
what someone else was doing in their final year at the Slade, which has been quite — quite
interesting.>>Just from memory recount a journey from
here to the UCL museum and just…>>Freddy Tuppen: For this work I’ve invited
all the people that are involved in this collaboration to recount a journey from the Slade Building
to the UCL Art Museum Building. And then I’ve edited that footage together in a way that
kind of makes that — it turns that into one amalgamated description of that journey. I
started off by looking at the original architectural plans of the Wilkins Building and so was in
— sort of interested in the contrast between — between the structure that those diagrams
described and the difference between how you then describe the remembered journey through
that space.>>Ninna Bohn Pedersen: I’m looking at sort
of portraits and the objects that people bring into a portrait or self-portrait, and how
they sort of have done that historically over the years and over the span of the prints
in the collection. I looked at quite a few, but there were some, obviously, that felt
more relevant than others. And they are — what sort of characterises as all of them is that
they all have — not necessarily like a durational aspect, but it’s sort of more sketch-like
in — from studies — studies of faces and portraits. ^M00:02:55 [ Music ]
