In Conversation: with Sandy Brown
Saturday 16th July 2022 // 6-8pm // £10 (£8 for Studio KIND. patrons) via Eventbrite
We are so excited to welcome Sandy Brown to Studio KIND. to chat to us about her career to date, and her new commission ‘Earth Goddess’ in St Austell.
Sandy, based in Appledore, has made a name for herself across Europe as a ceramicist who’s not afraid to push boundaries through her expressive and experimental work. Often working on a large-scale, ‘Earth Goddess’ is set to be the UK’s tallest ceramic sculpture and we can’t wait to get an insight into Sandy’s working processes and how she tackles these impressive commissions.
Sandy studied at Daisei Pottery in Mashiko, Japan. Now over 46 institutions and museums world wide hold pieces of her work in their permanent collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Ulster Museum in Belfast, the Aberdeen Museum & Art Gallery, the World Ceramic Centre in South Korea, and the Museum for Applies Art in Frankfurt. Sandy has worked with big names, such as Richard Long and Peter Randall Page, and she opened the Sandy Brown Museum in Appledore in 2014.
‘Earth Goddess’ opens in St Austell in June 2022.
In Conversation: with QUIETBRITISHACCENT on NFTs
Saturday 6th August 2022 // 6-8pm // £10 (£8 for Studio KIND. patrons) via Eventbrite
Art duo QUIETBRITISHACCENT discuss their journey into the world of non-fungible tokens on the Tezos blockchain, their successes and their failures. The duo will discuss the polarizing and controversial nature of this new artform, and how it makes us question traditional systems and the possibilities that this disruption can cause. They will take a look at the NFT artists who are breaking new ground, and talk through the buying and selling process, from setting up a crypto wallet to minting a token.
Their exhibition 'Money Talks: Penny Parlance' is on at Studio KIND. from 16th July to 6th August. Find out more here.
