raw feels / cooked feels

30 Jun 16
Lauren Gault

18:00 -19:30

raw feels / cooked feels is a talk and screening of recent film works by artist Lauren Gault. Her sculptural, written and performance-based practice looks at the resonant quality of materials; how objects can evoke more ‘intangible’ qualities, such as a period of time, a place or a presence. For this one-evening event at CCA, Gault will present a visual talk about her work and research, focussing on works developed from resources / objects in Ireland. The talk will conclude with the screening of new film works filmed in Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands.

Lauren Gault (b. 1986, Belfast) lives and works in Glasgow. Gault received her BA in Fine Art (First Class Hons) from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee. She works in installation, writing and performance.
