Part of the Centre of the Body programme of events - 'Exploring the Body: Interdisciplinarity in Practice' supported by the Wellcome Trust
This talk is chaired by Prof Anna Furse who is currently embarking on a creative collaboration with Prof Nicola Clayton. This event promises to be of interest to arts/science collaborators in particular.
Nicola Clayton is a Professor of Comparative Cognition in the Department of Psychology at Cambridge University, and a Fellow of Clare College. She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2010. She is also Scientist in Residence at the Rambert Dance Company.
Her most recent collaboration with artist Clive Wilkins arose out of their mutual interest in imagination, and its consequences for consciousness, identity and memory. They also regularly dance tango together. Nicky and Clive have a blog site describing their work at http://claytonwilkins.wordpress.com
Clive Wilkins is a fine art painter. He has exhibited widely, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London, at the Royal Academy and in private galleries in Cork Street, London - where he had a one man show in 2007. His work can be found in public and private collections. Clive has produced portraits of Sir Howard Hodgkin and Sir Peter Blake amongst others and has been presented publicly to HRH Princess Royal.
His current project, 'Moustachio', is a novel in four parts. It explores imagination and questions aspects of consciousness and reality amidst the miasma of being.
