Harlaam Artspace: Podcast 10 – Victoria Lucas
Recording of a talk and in conversation with Victoria Lucas and curators David Gilbert and Olivia Punnett from September 2018. Victoria Lucas is a Sheffield based artist, Senior Lecturer of Fine Art at the University of Central Lancashire and current PhD student at Sheffield Hallam University. Recent projects restructure frameworks that define female experience against socially engrained stereotypes, often incorporating cinematic, literary and folklorist references to illustrate a radical shift in how femininity and power is generated and perceived. Lucas will present the show following a one month residency at Haarlem Artspace in the newly built project space on the recently renovated second floor.

Fermynwoods Contemporary Art: Anti-Drawing Drawing
Fermynwoods asked some of our staff and artists to provide online workshops, prompts and tutorials for our series Isolated Moments, to keep spirits buoyed and creativity alive during COVID-19 global social isolating and quarantining measures. Our first online workshop is for people who think they can’t draw, courtesy of Jessica Harby, artist and Assistant Director of Fermynwoods Contemporary Art. “Too often as an artist I hear people tell me they cannot draw. What they mean, I think, is that they cannot draw a sufficiently accurate representation of a real life thing or person, which is not the same thing. Drawing realistically does not equal drawing! Drawing equals drawing! For those of us who do it a lot, we know drawing includes listening, feeling, intuiting, and looking at the world in a new way. For years, I’ve been running workshops for adults and children where the goal is to draw “badly”. These prompts are adapted from these Anti-Drawing drawing workshops.”
