Berlin-based artist Marie von Heyl will have a solo exhibition in our Phoenix Gallery later this year, but in the meantime you can catch a glimpse of some of her work at the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition at Plymouth Arts Centre and Plymouth College of Art.
As an associated event, Marie will be talking about her work and the Jerwood Prize on Wed 26 Feb, full details below.
Marie von Heyl – Jerwood Talk
Wed 26 Feb, 6pm, free
Plymouth Arts Centre
Marie von Heyl was awarded second prize in the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2013 for her work titled Interior (Utopia). She works with film, drawing, collage and installation and will be talking about her practice with a focus on drawing as performance. An interest in interiors and mundane objects is central to her practice and her work is an attempt to catch them in the act of transcending their original context – when tables start moving and heirlooms assume a life of their own. Her work playfully dances around things, pointing at the unexpectedly beautiful, tracing the uncanny and tapping into the absurd.
Advance booking is recommended on 01752 206114. More information about Plymouth Arts Centre at www.plymouthartscentre.org.
Marie’s talk is part of the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition at Plymouth Arts Centre from 13 February – 9 March and the Gallery at Plymouth College of Art from 10 February – 8 March.
