My first mentoring session with Emma Cocker has been really productive. We had some important conversations and in the coming months I’m going to be reassessing my practice. One of things that came to the fore was that I use an authoritarian language when I talk about my work and wider practice. One of the things I’m craving is a playfulness that used to be present in some of my work but that has somehow been lost along the way. These two things are related. I need to change my ethos towards my practice and nurture it to reintroduce that sense of lightness.
Things to look at:
Badiou – the 15 theses on contemporary art
Foucault – Care of the self
