Monday 18 September
SPOTLIGHT is the regular series in which Phoenix artists showcase their work and artistic practice. Join us for an evening of creative discussion, stimulating insights and a glass of wine.
Claudia Fontes and Russell Webb
Claudia Fontes is currently representing Argentina at the Venice Biennale. Her work often explores human identity in relation to other animals and the natural world. The Horse Problem, her installation at Venice, “addresses the failure by our species to survive without exploiting each other.”
Russell Webb’s work emerges from simple observations and is often made by transforming or re-presenting found items or commonplace objects. It can be viewed as a sort of interpretive diary about time and place that has resulted in a series of mementoes, relics and souvenirs, all united by themes of creation and loss.
