University of Birmingham artist in residence, Lynn Dennison, uses film, installation and collage to explore our relationship with the natural world. Interested in the idea of a fear of the landscape, she creates artworks that evoke the enormity of nature. Many of her installations reference ideas of climate change and consider the possibility of water overwhelming a domestic scene or flooding a building.
During her residency, Lynn has recorded footage of water at the University’s Raymond Priestley Centre on the western shore of Coniston Water in the Lake District. For Arts & Science Festival, Lynn will use this footage to project directly onto the University’s ‘Old Joe’ Clock Tower in an elevated and imposing display.
Join Lynn from 7.30pm for an introduction to her clock tower installation and hear more about her wider practice.
