PROXY. A talk by Kirsten Norrie
Writer, artist and musician Kirsten Norrie trained at the Ruskin School of Fine Art, University of Oxford. The author of three collections of poetry published by Bloodaxe in the UK and Red Hen in the US, she has written for Art Monthly and Performance Research and her work has been featured regularly on the BBC Radio 3 The Verb and Late Junction. In 2019, she was a Fondation Jan Michalski writer in residence in Switzerland and in 2020 she received a Paul Hamlyn Composer Award for nine records, working with producer and musician James Young (Nico, John Cale) and the contribution to several film scores by avant-garde British director Andrew Kötting.
sculpt is a response to the RCA Showcase 2021 as a superheated set of symbols aligned to Artaud's notion of a plague theatre and as a technological memory house of potent images which hybridise the classical digital and the contemporary animal.
