Start your day with food for thought, coffee and actual food at this Breakfast with Sriwhana Spong. Here, Sriwhana will discuss her art practice and work Now Spectral, Now Animal with Curator, Contemporary Art Natasha Conland. Inspired by the writings of St Teresa of Avila and a 12th-century Javanese poem, Spong collapses the boundaries between language and the body, offering an architecture in which women have the authority to speak. Now Spectral, Now Animal is featured in the exhibition Honestly Speaking: the Body, the Word and the Internet.
Sriwhana Spong is an artist of New Zealand and Indonesian descent currently living and working in London. She is interested in the fertile margins and rich edges where things meet, working across various mediums such as sculpture, film, writing, performance, dance and sound.
