Orwell Symposium @ Goldsmiths


, , , ,


target-against-the-wallThe Orwell Society are holding a symposium at Goldsmiths College, London on Wednesday 30th May 2018. Through their generosity, I have been invited to present the “Room 103” project. This will take the form of a half-hour slide show of work by participating artists, followed by a period of questions and observations from the floor. The Society are also kindly arranging space for a table-top presentation of examples of artists’ work, which will comprise original prints and books. The auditorium has a capacity of 250. In keeping with the ethos of the man under discussion, the event is free to members of the public and all are welcome. Further details to follow.

The Orwell Society blog is a wealth of essays on aspects of Orwell’s life and work.

and can be found on Facebook                  

Note to artists: If Orwell’s writings have influenced your work, now is the time to contribute something to this site, as the symposium will be a perfect opportunity to present your work to a knowledgeable audience who share your interest. See guidelines on front page of the “Room 103” blog.

b“Design for Living”

It is a design classic. It’s simplicity of form perfectly matches its intimate function. often used; rarely perused… My aim here was to make something of an icon from a cheap, mundane, everyday essential.

The oblique references accompanying each drawing relate not only to the condom and its intended purpose, but also the drawing techniques employed. Their mis-registrations and mis-spellings create double meanings to represent those frequent breakdowns in communication between lovers. Although the titles of the work perhaps reflect a certain cynicism regarding the rituals of sexual courtship, I hope the pictures may elicit the same knowing smile which greets the emergence of a condom, fresh from its package…
