Cork Printmakers welcome you to a lunchtime Artist Talk at 13:00 on Thursday 28th July in the ground floor studio by visiting artist Antony Reznik. (https://www.instagram.com/antonyreznik/)
Antony fled the war in Kharkiv Ukraine earlier this year and took up residence in the EU, which gave him first hand experience of displacement. He is one of six artists in residence at Cork Printmakers for the IN FROM THE MARGINS – Studios of Santuary project this summer.
In his practice, Antony often takes a light and jovial approach, jumbling postmodern concepts to question the notion of high art. To achieve this he creates a ‘clash of opposite meanings’ blending cultural and historical references, artistic styles and visual images together in unconventional and unexpected ways. The impact of these combinations is the creation of new meanings informed by the entirety of art history and his own personal experiences.
IN FROM THE MARGINS is a programme of Studios of Sanctuary residencies for artists with experience of displacement, supported by the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), through its Creative Europe programme.
All welcome, free entry.
