A rare opportunity to attend an artist’s talk by Elizabeth Price, who will visit Falmouth School of Art to give an illustrated talk organised by CAST to coincide with The Cornwall Workshop and the exhibition of her work USER GROUP DISCO in CAST’s black box screening space.
Elizabeth Price creates short videos that explore the social and political histories of artefacts, architectures and documents. Her works often begin with research into archives and museum collections and always involve a complex process of layering and digital editing – of the written word, the image, sound and rhythm – resulting in works which are formal, immaculate and restrained, but also lush and humorous.
Pop music and its technologies are featured often in Price’s work and her soundtracks include percussion and songs. This interest in pop is long-standing as Price was a founding member and songwriter for the 80s indie band Talulah Gosh.
Elizabeth Price was born in Bradford in 1966 and grew up in Luton. She attended Putteridge Comprehensive High School and then studied at the Ruskin School of Art, the Royal College of Art and the University of Leeds. She won the Turner Prize in 2012 for her work THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979.
