Online Talk | Meet the Artist: Susan Collins
[ Online Talk )
Join the conversation with artist Susan Collins and discover the inspiration behind her new commission Dell Quay.
Susan Collins is one of the contemporary artists who has created new work for Sussex Landscape: Chalk Wood and Water. For her work, Dell Quay, a camera has been installed on the roof of Dell Quay Sailing Club in Chichester Harbour. Images from the camera are transmitted live to a screen in the exhibition, which then updates one pixel at a time over a six and half hour time period, the times it takes for the tide to change. The result is a hauntingly beautiful image of the harbour, which slowly evolves during the day, capturing the changes of light, movement of the sea, boats and wildlife. As Collin’s has said, she is exploring ‘a longing for this remote location, this connection with the other [place]’.
This online event will take place over Zoom and gives you the chance to hear directly from the artist herself, find out more about her work and to ask questions.
You can see Dell Quay in our current exhibition Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water.
Tickets cost £5 and you will receive access to a recorded version after the event that will be available until April 2023.
