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.
Ed Briggs is an artist, scientist and musician. He works with 'theatrical substances' such as electronics, instruments, biological material, noxious, volatile chemicals, lasers and lenses to make sound and performance. He is currently working on an AHRC funded practice-based PhD looking at artists re-enacting and modifying scientific experimental practice.
Suzanne O'Haire creates domestic-scale assemblages out of everyday discarded junk and castings from disposed packaging. Arrangements of acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced forms emerge from impermanent matter. Her re-imagined works suggest utopian visions, architectural playgrounds or portals to an otherworld. She believes that what she finds, or what finds her, plays with notions of luck and chance.
