Our new online experience In Focus continues next week with artist Yandell Walton. Through a two-part presentation of an interview and documentary following screenings, and premieres of select work, we hope to give our audience an intimate and authentic connection to artists.
The SUBSTATION’s Artistic Director Brad Spolding meets Yandell Walton to discuss her background, practice and recent work including immersive work ‘Shifting Surrounds.’ This event will be streamed via YouTube - this link will be emailed to you after registering, and will also be posted to the Facebook event. After the interview, you will have an opportunity to interact with Brad and Henry though YouTube. Please write comments and/or questions into the ‘comments’ section in YouTube.
**ABOUT YANDELL: ** Yandell Walton is a Melbourne-based artist whose work encompasses projection, installation, and interactive digital media. Through work that melds architectural space with the projected image, Yandell has become recognised for her public projection works that merge the actual and the virtual to investigate notions of impermanence in relation to environmental, social and political issues.
Yandell’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and non-traditional public spaces including Light City Festival Baltimore (2016), Digital Graffiti Florida (2015), Experimenta Speak to Me (Melbourne & Brisbane 2012-14), PUBLIC Festival Perth (2014), Melbourne Festival (2012), VIVID Festival Sydney (2013), ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art 2013) and White Night Festival Melbourne (2013/15), amongst others.
Alongside her creative practice Yandell is a passionate advocate for projection art. She facilitates community development projects, workshops and masterclasses in projection art, and has collaborated with community groups from refugee backgrounds, indigenous communities and disadvantaged youth.
