This series of collages titled 'Ways of Knowing' was created in reflection to undertaking practice-led research in the arts. The series explores the tensions I experienced between different forms of 'knowing': 'knowing' as an academic and 'knowing' as an artist, and how these collide.
These images are digital collages created from old academic journals, hand written notes, academic books referenced in my work and found images during my research. I collage by assembling a layer by hand, scanning it into my computer, then working on it on Photoshop.
Exhibited in November 2015 at Slade School of Arts, UCL as part of a research event Against Delivery in the exhibition Inner Dialogue and Material Translation.
Inner Dialogue and Material Translation aimed to address misconceptions that art and research are separate entities. The session took place in an exhibition format, featuring artworks including paintings, digital prints, installation and sculptures. It was set up in the form of a studio critique, divided into two parts, with two groups of participants. Participants played an active role in delivering the conversations as their contribution to the theme of Against Delivery. The artists for their part delivered the artwork.
