Artists Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen and author Daisy Hildyard will talk about their work and workings.
Artists Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen and author Daisy Hildyard will talk about their work and workings. In this lecture / screening / reading, they will attempt to disentangle threads of raw materials, infection, global supply chains, reproduction, gambling and a fungus that eats compact discs.
This lecture is co-hosted between the Critical Ecologies research stream and the Centre for Research Architecture.
Daisy Hildyard is author of two novels – Emergency (2022) and Hunters in the Snow (2014) – and one work of nonfiction, The Second Body (2017). Emergency, most recently, tells stories of the global connections, and the human-nonhuman relationships, within a small rural area of the north of England. Her writing has received awards including a ‘5 under 35’ honorarium (National Book Awards, USA) and a Somerset Maugham Award (Society of Authors, UK). She contributes to publications including The Guardian, Granta, The Times Literary Supplement, The London Review of Books, frieze, and art-agenda. She lives in North Yorkshire.

From genetically engineering sterile goldfish to choreographing a factory assembly line, Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen’s work is performed within particular networks. These networks – whether they connect raw materials, mythic conditions, animal genetics, constructions of uncertainty, or colonial inheritances – offer a point of departure for the artists, from which they explore friction, entanglement, porousness, reflection, and self-implication. Recent exhibitions took place at Ghost 2565 Bangkok; Serpentine Galleries (London); the 13th Shanghai Biennale; Walker Art Center (Minneapolis); Philadelphia Museum of Art; The Renaissance Society (Chicago); Para Site (Hong Kong); HKW (Berlin); and Congo International Film Festival (Goma). It is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Mu.ZEE, Ostend; and M+, Hong Kong. Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen live and work in London.
The event is free and open to all. It will take place 5-7pm in the Richard Hoggart Building, room 312.
