A talk by visiting artist Florian Roithmayr as part of the Fine Art Research Unit lecture series
Wednesday 18 March 2015, 2.00pm
Florian Roithmayr's work explores a concern for activities and relationships that shape environments, supported by his investigation of empathy in various forms of production, including archaeology, conservation or pedagogy. He is known for a diverse practice often emphasizing the process of moulding and casting as both documentary and transitory exchange that leaves subtle traces.
Central to these processes is the peeling open of layers to reveal the generative gap between shapes, surfaces and materials that form and yield another. In this hidden and unobserved space, the gesture of contact and touch continues to reappear and proliferate throughout the history of sculpture.
