AGNES VARNAI, TINA KULT & LUCY HUTCHINSON
Three of our artists-in-residence come together to showcase the experimental artworks created during their residency.
Created during their residencies, the works are presented in our new gallery space designed by Chila Kumari Singh Burman.
Agnes Varnai and Tina Kult founded their artist collective, The (new) Constellation in 2017. Living and working in Vienna, the artist duo were awarded the European Media Art Residency Exchange in 2022 to support the development of their experimental practice. They work with a wide range of media including virtual reality, 3D, installation, film and fashion. By combining different types of media, the artists research how immersive experiences can blur the boundaries between digital and physical realities. For this exhibition, Agnes and Tina will showcase their audio-visual installation that explores a fictional dialogue about labour and laziness between a human and a disobedient robot.
Lucy Hutchinson was selected to be a Jerwood Arts x FACT Fellow in 2022 to develop her practice which explores the relationship between identity politics, witchcraft, and biotechnology. Using the Lancashire Witches as a starting point, Lucy’s work blends fact and fiction to connect seemingly different sources to question how historic events have shaped our world today. The resulting work is a speculative narrative that looks at under-explored histories whilst manifesting interventions for the future.
