Sarah Rose & Jemma Egan
Artists’ Talk 13th April
6 – 8pm
Join us on Thursday 13th April to hear our current Micro Residents Jemma Egan & Sarah Rose discuss their work.
Jemma Egan’s work looks at the ‘everyday’ stuff of life with a high level of detail, investigating things that she believes are representative of the moment in which we live right now. She is drawn to objects that seem to sit somewhere between real and fake, things that seem over-styled or unnecessary, or outlandish in a really banal or unspectacular way.
Sarah Rose‘s practice considers processes of observation that function to witness or evidence an event. Contesting the document as a stable form, she focuses on the extra-informational qualities: corrupted translations, cumulative error, abstractions, and transformations produced within situated environments.
Jemma Egan is an artist based in London. She graduated from Fine Art at Liverpool school of Art and Design in 2005 and from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Sculpture in London in 2015.
