Jessica Potter: Ground
Artist and writer Jessica Potter will consider the space of language and how it can bring people together within the ground of the image. Drawing on the descriptive writings of Francis Ponge and John Clare the talk will reflect on encounters with natural forms in Becky Beasley’s work in order to consider our relation to nature and to each other. Beasley will join Jessica for a Q&A at the end.
