Before Nothing – Crypt February Residency 2020
February 29-12:00 pm - March 1-6:00 pm
29 February – 1 March 2020
Opening times: 12-6pm (3 slots)
The research residency explores the concepts of observing vs gazing when compared to being seen. The artist is there to be seen and while making work, writing, creating, preparing, thinking, emotionally reacting or simply staying. The residency is divided into 2-hour slots: 90 min of “a silently observed artist” followed by 30 min of pause and interaction with the viewers. This work-in-progress is part of the artist’s research and questionnaires will be available on site. Matilde Tomat is an existential eclectic therapist, writer and multidisciplinary artist based in Lancashire. Her work is site-responsive, participatory and focused on examining concepts of identity, memory and legacy, bridging art and psychotherapy, at the same time investigating the reactions of the viewers and their validity.
