Studio4 Summer Residency: Ilona Sagar


15 I fell back and you were there 1

Ilona Sagar’s practice combines sculpture, film and performance in response to the social and historic context found in the public and private spaces we inhabit.  The link between language, surface, technologies and the body will be the focus of her work during the residency, including an exploration of ‘the glass delusion’, a disorder first recorded in the Middle ages in which people feared they were made of glass.

Sagar will use the summer residency as a period of focused development and in-depth research to produce a series of a new works to be exhibited in September and October 2015.  The artist will also stage three public events that aim to extend a cross-disciplinary dialogue of the research and ideas raised her practice, as well as hold regular open studio sessions.
