George Hill-Baker‘s Studio4 residency engages with materiality as a means of exploring precariousness, irony, and the subjectivity of success. Using a series of previously created digital works as reference, he will embark upon a process of translation as their digital figures, forms and textures become physical. This will be an experimental process, embracing both quotidian and more precious materials, which playfully considers how different materialities represent and reimagine the digital subject matter.
During his residency, George will host a two-part session with UAL students; a hands-on workshop using the plaster technique of Scagliola and a follow up discussion on how materiality can be used to communicate concepts within practice.
The work created over the course of the residency will be presented as an Open Studio 29-30 May. Due to Covid-19 restrictions capacity is limited and visitors will need to book a timed slot in advance, which you can do here.
