The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at LCC is pleased to announce a series of research talks thinking about the relationship of photography and writing – and how photographs are expanded, altered and dissected through text. Talks will be introduced by short presentations of works by current students and alumni.
Kreidler/O’Leary: ‘Word, Image and Situated Practice’
In this cross-platform survey we shall examine a number of works, looking specifically at the role of word and image in our nomadic, situated practice. How do words – and, by extension, the architecture of sentences, paragraphs and essays – operate within, beside and beyond the image to open and communicate meaning?
Kreider + O’Leary are a poet and architect who collaborate to make work in sites such as prisons, military sites, film locations, landscape gardens and desert environments. Dr Kristen Kreider is Reader in Poetry and Poetics at Royal Holloway, University of London. James O’Leary is Lecturer in Architecture at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
