The Missing Subject

A 10-minute presentation on my residency at King’s College London and the work that is has enabled, particularly the ‘loose collaboration’ with the artists Stuart Brisley and Maya Balcioglu, and Dr Sanja Perovic of King’s.

Presented at the CreativeWorks London 3rd Annual Creative Entrepreneurs-in-Residence Scheme Information Event, Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, on 24 March 2015.

Since the event was held on University of the Arts London premises at Chelsea School of Art, I also used the opportunity and the platform it provided to express my support for the students who are occupying another part of UAL to protest against cuts to Foundation Courses across the university. I pointed out that I am only able to do what I do for a living because a Foundation Course offered me a gateway to an art education and a professional life in the arts.

  2. @tony_white_ Alongside my more mainstream fiction, I frequently collaborate with

    visual artists, e.g. my novella Dicky Star and the Garden Rule (Forma, 2012) was commissioned alongside a series of works by the artists Jane and Louise Wilson, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. I also wrote the script for Jane and Louise Wilson’s film The Toxic Camera.
