Associate Studio Programme 2 : Morgan Quaintance

In June 2017, Morgan visited the studios. Morgan’s visit was split into two halves, with one half specifically dedicated to concerns around his practice, whilst the second a discussion around the Associates work. We opened with Morgan with a talk about political issues in contemporary society (homelessness, housing, disability rights). Morgan spoke at length about the position of power, the privilege it was to ‘make’ and the influence this could have in creating a ‘voice’. The marrying of poetic and aesthetic became a key theme that then ran through the discussion of the Associate’s work. The conversation also centered around ‘play’ as a political act. Adeeb Ashfaq presented a performance, Nina Davies; a film and Joe Moss; a performance. As an image to represent the visit Morgan bought the album; Fantasy Black Channel by Late of the Pier.Adeeb Ashfaq
