It's Not a Lie if You Believe It
Current apexart resident British artist KELLY WARMAN, and MATTHEW LYONS, curator for the Kitchen, discuss the translation of the written word into performative, mediated and cinematic space, focusing on contemporary literature and film that has evolved from the novel form. In addition, Kelly Warman will read excerpts from her residency diary.
Kelly Warman is a British born artist based
in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Before completing her MFA at the
Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, Kelly graduated with a BA (Hons)
from Dartington College of Arts, Dartington and a diploma from
Chelsea College of Art, London, UK. Kelly's formation is
related to a larger understanding of a culture that evolves around
self-performance, she is particularly interested in the translation
of the interior monologue into the cinematic space. Warman's
work investigates the idea of a commodity-person through staged
performance and cinematic video works. Kelly Warman was recommended
by Anselm Franke, curator and writer, Artistic Director of Extra
City Center for Contemporary Art in Antwerp, Belgium.
