MONTHLY TALK - LYNETTE WALLWORTH
Thursday 5 May 2011
Talks on digital art, culture and film on the first Thursday of the month
Step behind the scenes and get a glimpse of the thinking motivating the digital world’s greatest artists, thinkers and doers with the Lighthouse Monthly talks. Australia artist Lynette Wallworth was the May 2011 speaker.
Renowned Australian artist Lynette Wallworth was the speaker for Lighthouse’s monthly talk in May, which took place just before the launch of Brighton Festival 2011. Lynette Wallworth’s artistic practice spans digital media, video installation, photography and film. Wallworth’s talk preceded the UK premiere of her installation, Evolution of Fearlessness as part of Brighton Festival, which was guest directed by Nobel Peace Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi. Evolution of Fearlessness is an intimate, interactive installation dealing with loss, survival and strength. It presents eleven portraits of women who have survived wars, survived concentration camps or extreme acts of violence. Whilst cinematic techniques are at the heart of Evolution of Fearlessness, the work goes beyond cinema in its immersive and interactive form, revealing the strength of the human spirit.
Lynette Wallworth’s work has been presented at the Auckland Triennial, Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Sydney festival as well as being exhibited internationally from Arnolfini, The Young Vic and Festival d’Aix en Provence in Europe to New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in the United States.
A collaboration with Brighton Festival.
