Artists – all welcome FREE to Blue Monkey Network members; £5 non-members Join us for an exclusive walk and talk around Legion, Kelly Richardson’s exhibition at Towner, with artist and university lecturer Susan Diab. We’ll be looking at the exhibition from an artist’s perspective and Susan will lead discussions based around the work and questions arising from it. Kelly Richardson is known for her stunning large scale video installations of hyper-real landscapes. Combining the real and the imagined to visually arresting effect, she starts by filming real landscapes and then uses digital technology to distort them until they appear unfamiliar and foreboding. Kelly’s exhibition, Legion, is on display in Towner’s Exhibition Gallery from 2 February – 14 April 2013.… Susan Diab works across a range of media and forms of practice from making objects, to organizing public events, to facilitating projects and collaborations. She is based at APEC studios in Hove. Blue Monkey Network is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
