Research is Everything, Everything is Research

In Semester 1 our second year students have been working on the direction of their photographic process, we have a drive to become more independent practitioners. Students experiment in a variety of ways making work relevant to them in genres they are excited about and discovering more personalised viewpoints, Research is Everything, Everything is Research.

Bartlomiej Staszowski – Visiting Lecture

Last Week we had the great pleasure of spending some time with one of our very talented Photouclan Alumni, fashion photographer Bartlomeij Staszowski. Bart was spending some time with our year 2 students showing the latest directions his work is taking and his journey into industry from UCLan.

Thank you for the advice and inspiration!

Bart also shared his advice and amazing studio lighting skills with us in our workshop time, helping students refine their lighting skills.

DOMINO is proposed as the first of a sequence of SAVORR led programmes that will launch a self-supporting network with other regional art scenes. Here, two artists from Birmingham, Brian J Morrison and Emily Warner, have been invited to create new work for the first floor of The Shoe Factory. Working in dialogue with contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts, the progression of the invited artists’ ideas will be documented and such material will be on display for visitor insight and discussion.

Resist, resist release, will see Brian and Emily work collaboratively to produce works informed by crossovers in their practice. Both Artists are interested in the body and its relationship to art and will develop a response to each other and the exhibition space.

As part of the exhibition Brian and Emily will be acting as judges for a film/moving image open call. To submit to this please follow the link below.

More information and documentation of the project will be updated on the SAVORR webspace during the production week.

The first edition of North was an attempt to challenge the traditional degree show model, giving students the opportunity to be featured in a publication with distribution across the UK and Europe.
