SALLY PAYEN - Part of the Art House Open Lecture Series
Wednesday, 11 March 2020
The Art House, Castle St, Worcester WR1 3ZQ
Payen’s work focuses on the object-ness of painting in space and exploring an ambiguous relationship between representation and self-symbolic mystery; Key subjects have included protest and democracy in painting, film, and archive; investigating how non-violent protest can alter time-scape when it lands in a painting.
In recent years there has been a weird triangle between exploring history painting, feminine knitting and sewing and repetition. Payen had a one-person exhibition at MAC Birmingham exploring aspects of the anti-nuclear protest at Greenham Common.
