About this event

During March, the artist Phoebe Collings-James will be undertaking a residency in Loughborough University's Department of Materials, researching methods for achieving controlled material decay. 

Exploring violence, control and embodiment, Collings-James’ she will enact a series of material experiments intended to disrupt boundaries between the subject and the object, reclaiming agency and resistance in the position of the objectified ‘other’.

For this event, Phoebe will be in conversation with the artist Rebecca Bellatoni. A London-born artist of Caribbean descent, Bellantoni considers the notion of ‘the real’ through a lens of spirituality and its aesthetics. Bellantoni’s practice includes video, textile, performance, installation and writing.
