Artist Talk with Julia Mandle
"When is the last time you played with clay?”
Recently transplanted to Amsterdam, New York artist Julia Mandle will introduce herself, her conceptual art practice and offer Spring House members a chance to get their hands dirty.
Her artwork incorporates a wide variety of media: from charcoal to sugar, from dirt to bronze, from performance to installation, and most recently ceramic. What is consistent among all her projects is the original inspiration that she draws from current events and its impact on individuals. Her experience of witnessing, while living in NYC, the violence of 911 --the powdered covered people wandering the streets and the charred office papers continually raining from the sky-- crystalized her artistic direction. The experience deepened her search for traces of people and their touch in the city.
Please let us know if you are interested in joining the event.
Date: Thursday December 8th
Spring House, De Ruyterkade 128, Amsterdam
