New Visual Languages: Landscape, Politics & the Lens
- This event has passed.
Artist Corinne Silva, whose work features in the exhibition My Sister Who Travels, will be in conversation with scholar Eugenie Shinkle. Together, they will discuss the way that power and gender relations are embedded in the perception of landscape, and the way that these relations are subverted and disrupted by the work in the exhibition

She writes widely on technology, landscape and fashion imagery, with a focus on body/technology relations, and the embodied and haptic dimensions of image perception. She is the editor of Fashion as Photograph (I.B. Tauris, 2008), and co-editor of Emerging Landscapes: Between Production and Representation (Ashgate, 2014). Her work is also included in publications such as Carnal Aesthetics: Transgressive Imagery and Feminist Politics (I.B. Tauris 2012), and Digital Cultures and the Politics of Emotion (Palgrave MacMillan, 2012). She is Reader in Photography at the University of Westminster
Corinne Silva’s practice explores the use of the still and moving image in suggesting metaphysical space. Her quiet, meditative visual language engages with the potentials and restrictions of lens-based media and the evolving relationship between politics, landscape and art histories. Recent exhibitions include Gardening the Suburbs, Makan Art Space, Amman (2014); I See Europe! Kunstbezirk, Stuttgart (2013); and the Brighton Photo Biennial (2012). Silva is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Photography and the Archive Research Centre, University of the Arts London.
