Alien Sex Club Event: Mark Scott-Wood
Saturday 14 November 2015, 14.00 – 15.00
Free, booking required
Artist Mark Scott-Wood creates new work for an event exploring props, tools, habits and rituals in collaboration with HIV nurse Janey Sewell.
Mark Scott-Wood studied at Norwich School of Art and Design and Byam Shaw School of Art.
Recent exhibitions include ‘Test Space Open’ at Spike Island, Bristol, ‘Business as Usual’ (a touring show curated by Perce Jerrom) and ‘Putt Putt #2’ at Turf Projects, Croydon.
He is driven by a desire to explore materials and the processes they can endure. The work he makes is inspired by the natural world and how humans relate to it. This manifests itself through play and attempts to create new myths and legends or – an alternative modern day folklore.
This event will take place at Bluecoat.
Part of Homotopia 2015
Alien Sex Club is a multimedia project which explores the relationship between visual culture and HIV today.
The aim is to provide audiences with a new vocabulary for understanding and talking about HIV and the factors contributing to its transmission.
