This talk will explore the nature of Hugh and Suna’s collaboration, charting the creation of a new visual language that fuses together poetry and ceramics and illuminating how their work has been influenced by the practice of dance improvisation. Their shared concern for capturing the present moment and highlighting the very ordinary moments of everyday life has resulted in the exhibition Æsc, which took place in a medieval church in Hampshire in the Autumn of 2017. The talk will also reveal how the collaborative process is now shifting into a new body of work that is responding to land and alternative firing methods that will cast the poetry in a new light.
Suna Imre’s initial training in dance influences her approach to making with movement and improvisation playing a significant role in the creation of ceramic art and contemporary painting. She is artist in residence at Mottisfont National Trust from October 2017 to October 2018.
Hugh Greasley is a visual artist as well as a poet - painting and writing about landscape, people and memory. He has a scientific education which often informs his writing.
