Meet the artist – Sophie Whettnall (at) work
27.04.2019, 11:00 > 12:30
With Sophie Whettnall, Carine Fol and Emiliano Battista (in English)
Meet Sophie Whettnall and the authors of the monograph on the work of the artist, with the Editions Mercator.
This unconventional publication explores the process of making art through the work and studio practice of Sophie Whettnall, a contemporary Belgian artiste whose works range from video art, installation and performance to sculpture and drawing. In addition to copious illustrations of Whettnall’s artwork that highlight its relationship to the studio and the artist’s creative process, the book features three conversations. The first, between Whettnall and fellow artist Marina Abramovic, explores transmission, violence and feminity. The second, between Emiliano Battista and Scott Samuelson, situates Whettnall’s work and practice in the broader context of contemporary art and the theoretical framework that shapes it. In the third, Carine Fol and Whettnall share with the reader the behind-the-scenes discussions and desicions that go into the mounting of an exhibition.
