Private View : Public Birth - New artist-print intervention by Helen Knowles
Richard Hoggart Building (RHB), Kingsway Corridor
26th April – 23rd May 2013
Helen Knowles, winner of the Great Art Prize 2012 and curator of Birth Rites Collection, presents two large-scale screen prints from her Youtube Portrait series as part of the Kingsway Corridor cabinet programme.
Drawing from a vast library of online birth videos, Knowles appropriates imagery of women in the transcendental state of birth. Using an innovative printing technique of exposing a screen with a digital projector, Knowles creates hyper-real images that oscillate between the figurative and abstraction.
