A Dialogue Through Material by Céline Condorelli and Hannah Catherine Jones
This is an edited recording of an evening exploring the artistic practices of Celine Condorelli and Hannah Catherine Jones, the artists involved in our current exhibition Our Silver City, 2094.
Celine Condorelli and Hannah Catherine Jones discuss their collaboration and practice by sharing visual, aural and literary references that have influenced their works in the exhibition Our Silver City, 2094. By bringing together unlikely materials, they create an active archive, juxtaposed with one another to trace what residues may be left behind.
Céline Condorelli (IT, UK) is a London and Lisbon-based artist, and was one of the founding directors of Eastside Projects, Birmingham, UK; she is the author and editor of Support Structures published by Sternberg Press (2009).
Condorelli combines a number of approaches from developing structures for ‘supporting’ (the work of others, forms of political imaginary, existing and fictional realities) to broader enquiries into forms of commonality and discursive sites.
