Sat 14 Apr 11:00 £5/£4*
Honorary lecturer in Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred at Canterbury Christ Church University Angela Voss and Serena Korda discuss the importance of symbolism and imagination as an antidote to Post-Enlightenment reason.
Serena Korda works across performance, sound and sculpture reconsidering aspects of communion and tradition in our lives. During her two-year residency as the Norma Lipman & BALTIC fellow in Ceramic Sculpture at Newcastle University, Korda has drawn inspiration from her location and the people she has met. Korda has also become fascinated by the sound of stars from the dark skies of Northumberland, only audible with specific radio devices, and the pre-radar acoustic sound mirrors dotted along the North East coastline.
