Artist Talk: David Blandy, online, 24 November 2020 - Book now

Enjoy an online talk with David Blandy – an artist based in London & Brighton, who works with the image in the digital world – presented by Castlefield Gallery.

Blandy has established his terrain through a series of investigations into the cultural forces that influence him, ranging from his love of hip hop and soul, to computer games and manga. His works slip between performance and video, reality and construct, using references sampled from the disparate sources that provide his sense of self. His film, Child of the Atom, draws on his family history and is perhaps the most intimate and direct piece of self-examination, following directly from earlier works which sought to question how much of a Western sense of identity can be constructed from diverse popular sources.

He has exhibited nationally and internationally with recent projects including solo shows at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Germany; Bloomberg Space, London; Crossroads, a solo exhibition at Spike Island, Bristol that toured to Turner Contemporary, Margate, and 176 Project Space, London and a solo show at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead.
