Join artist Lauren Gault for this in conversation with author Daisy Hildyard on Cithra.
Taking details and materials from Gault's solo exhibition, the conversation will use storytelling to unsettle our sense of place, moving through the gallery space and haunted landscapes to explore intimacy and alienation within future agri-relations.*
*This includes the agricultural, the agri-ecological, and all the ways in which agriculture moves beyond the rural (moving through our environments and relationships).
Daisy Hildyard is an author based in North Yorkshire. Her latest nonfiction book, The Second Body (2017), thinks about how the porous boundaries of the Anthropocene affect lived experiences. A new novel, Emergency (2022), tells stories of global connections and human-nonhuman relationships within a small rural area of northern England.
Lauren Gault is a Glasgow-based artist born in Belfast. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee in 2008.
