End of Empire: Artist talk and discussion

Admission Free, reserve a spot
Start Time 18:00
End Time 20:00

Join Open Eye Gallery for an engaging discussion on expanded photography and the (hauntological) potential of AI, centering around the project #end_of_empire by artist Eva Sajovic in collaboration with musician Nicola Privato, commissioned for the British Textile Biennial 2023.

#end_of_empire was a large scale, site-specific installation featuring knitted photographs embedded with touch sensors and AI generated sound.

The evening will commence by exploring questions posed by the artists in this work, including the concept of knitting as ethical photography, the role of the body in mediating with the more-than-human, the potential and the risks of AI and the role of technology in facing the challenges of the Anthropocene. This will be followed by a response by Dr Lucy Soutter before it is opened to Q&A from the participants.

#end_of_empire is a co-commission with In-Situ and the British Textile Biennial with This Is Nelson Town Deal funding.
