Undone in the face: Anna Barham in conversation with Keira Greene

Anna Barham’s artwork uses video, text, print, installation and live events to set up relationships between human and non-human others. Exposing language to different bodies, forms and technologies, she creates complex feedback loops in which we witness – and contribute to – the production, erosion and modification of meaning.

Listen to Anna’s reading of Undone in the face, a new work produced for Whitstable Biennale’s Journal from material she generated during a residency at St John’s College Oxford in Spring 2019 . The recording is followed by a conversation with Whitstable Biennale performance curator Keira Greene, in which Anna describes her work with reading groups and voice recognition software, as well as the ideas and texts informing her work.

A written transcription of the interview is available for hard of hearing people.

Prose Brut: Jude Crilly in conversation with Keira Greene

Commissioned for Whitstable Biennale 2018, Prose Brut was a performance work by artist Jude Crilly made for Whitstable Harbour. It was composed of interwoven choreographies, a seagull swarm, and a site-specific sculpture in collaboration with artist Morgan Courtois.

Jude is joined in conversation by artist and Whitstable Biennale 2018 performance curator Keira Greene to discuss scores, choreography, the texts that inspired the piece and its title; and the joining of performers and audiences in public space. The interview includes extracts from the quadrophonic soundtrack made for the performance.
