An open reading group exploring conceptual and art writing while fostering dialogue between writers, artists and researchers, lead by Sue Rainford.
Taking place in Studio 6 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios as part of the Studio 6 Open programme, A Penny Spinning is an open reading group which aims to explore conceptual and art writing while fostering dialogue between writers, artists and researchers. Open to the public, each session will be tailored with readings and questions to consider in advance of meeting, pursuing such topics as writing as artefact, critical intervention and inscription – both in themselves and in relation to the visual arts.
This 4th session takes place on Friday, January 23rd at 6pm. No Booking Necessary. Organised and lead by Sue Rainsford
This session will look at examples from literary fiction to assess how conceptual methods can be combined with other elements, like psychoanalytic theory and feminist critique, in depicting the development and life of the mind.
Relevant practitioners include William Faulkner and Dorothy Richardson
Some questions to consider:
How is it that Faulkner writes ‘beyond’ his characters?
How might Rancière’s sentence-image be employed in understanding Faulkner’s textual topography?

As always, it isn’t necessary to have read the texts in advance of attending.
