Artist in Residence: Linsday Peyton
Presenting our first Artist in Residence this summer! The goal of this program is to provide a supportive environment for an artist to expand on their normal way of working to create a site specific, interactive and accessible installation. This is a unique opportunity for an artist to make, play and explore whilst pushing the boundaries of their artist practice.
Lindsay Peyton has been selected to transform our exhibition space into an art laboratory. Science and art have a lot in common. They are both methods for probing deeper into mystery. They both involve hypothesis and process, questioning and experimenting.
Lindsay is primarily a painter; she will create a room as if one of her renderings of interior spaces has come to life, giving a sense of magic and whimsy. In this laboratory, experiments will be conducted to mirror the artistic and scientific process of examining life. As a hoarder of memories, Lindsay will examine love letters, photos, and pieces of nostalgia using paraphernalia such as microscopes, test tubes and dissection trays.
The lab will be a space where guests are invited to enter and start their own explorations into memory and emotion.
Lindsay will wear a lab coat whist carrying out her experiments; she will keep a journal and display the various ART-i-facts she produces as she creates an atmosphere of work in process.
Linsday will be at artEAST according to this approximate schedule:
- Thursday, 1–7:30 pm
- Friday, 3–7 pm
- Saturday, 3–7 pm
Stop by and see what she’s creating!
