Maeve Brennan at Goldsmiths: Contemporary Art Talks

  • 6 December, 5:30pm - 7:00pm, Goldsmiths, University of London.

    Maeve Brennan looks at the historical and political resonance of sites and materials, culminating mainly in moving image and installation works. Led by a documentary approach, she spends time carrying out long-term investigative research, seeking out proximity and intimacy with people and places. Forming these personal relationships allows for a particular kind of documentary encounter – one extended by familiarity and complicated by subjectivity.
    She often works with people who have a certain expertise and associated physical practice (geologists, archaeologists, restorers, mechanics), documenting these particular and detailed forms of knowledge to animate inanimate objects and layered histories.
