In Dialogue with Suzann Victor and Marc Gloede

Artist Suzann Victor and Guest Curator Marc Gloede discussed how the element of water echoes across the artist’s body of work. In her practice, this exchange with the element requires a multisensory approach that, when transformed into works, similarly flows through all of the audiences’ senses. Beyond that, the talk will be an open-ended and candid exchange, allowing for the conversation to flow along in organic directions, much like the sense-shifting qualities of water.

In Dialogue with Suzann Victor, Penny Siopis & Martin Guinard-Terrin | Moderated by Clément Delépine

Suzann Victor, South African artist Penny Siopis, and co-curator of the 12th Taipei Biennial ‘You and I Don’t Live on the Same Planet’ Martin Guinard-Terrin spoke on the artists’ contribution for RHE. The discussion was moderated by Galleries Curate coordinator Clément Delépine. With a focus on Victor’s Fire Water (2021) as well as Siopis’ She Breathes Water (2019) and Obscure White Messenger (2010), the speakers will share their thoughts on the mutability of perception. From a bodily to planetary scale, the discussion will flow between the micro and macro perspectives that the works inspire, such as getting deep in touch with your sensorial capabilities, to the ecological urgency of the state of Earth today. The discussion will also touch on non-human actants to defamiliarise our normative modes of perception, and what that can offer in re-thinking how history is written.
