On Dedication

odsmallOn Dedication is a group exhibition that aims to develop a contemporary understanding of the idea of dedication through five original collaborations between artists and respondents from backgrounds in theology, philosophy, and the arts.

The exhibition consists of five pieces of work that each present  a unique and individual interpretation of the guiding theme. The exhibition is accompanied by a five-part publication commissioned especially for On Dedication, in which the respondents each respond to one of the artworks from their particular points of view.

Participating artists were Ben Van den Berghe and Edi Danartono, Harald den Breejen, Kathleen McKay, Jeremy Millar, and Joseph Noonan-Ganley. Respondents were respectively Koen Sels, Christopher Hamilton, Sacha Golob, Marcel Barnard, and Ciara Finnegan.

Salon: Kasia Molga and Sacha Golob in Collaboration with TCCE

In this salon, CPVA director Sacha Golob meets Kasia Molga. Molga is a fusion artist working mixing media art, interaction design, environmental science and creative coding & technology to working on the intersection of art, science, design and technology. She examines human perception and relationship with the planet/nature/environment in the increasingly technologically mediated world in a context of environmental changes and unforeseen futures. She does so by exploring various aspects of transmitting and manifesting real time environmental and biological data.

Salon: Alinah Azadeh and Sacha Golob in Collaboration with TCCE

Alinah Azadeh is a UK artist working across multiple different media. Whether a small sculpture or a dialogue with a stranger on the street – her works are rooted in the disclosure of intimate poetic and personal narratives, which act as a bridge into the work for others to take. At this salon, Alinah discuss with Philosopher Sacha Golob how, through acts of gift, ritual and playful exchange, her works create dialogue around the nature of loss, longing and our social and cultural identities.

Salon: Jane Wildgoose and Sacha Golob in Collaboration with TCCE

janewildgooseimg Artist Jane Wildgoose and philosopher Sacha Golob discuss the concept and development of contemporary artistic practice, and some of the central themes of Jane’s work, in particular the ideas of memory, narrative and imagination.

The full event was recorded, and can be heard here.

Jane Wildgoose works across a wide range of disciplines exploring the values, narratives, and memories that become attached to remains of all kinds. Whether devising complex cabinets and installations combining hundreds of museum objects with specially devised handicrafts; researching, writing and designing a medical/musical performance based on a curious piece of Baroque music describing surgery to remove stones from the body; or co-devising a broadcast for BBC Radio examining a hair from the head of Horatio Nelson bought on eBay, Wildgoose’s appraisals of the past are transported into the present with a strong appeal to the senses and the imagination, underpinned by detailed research and thorough knowledge of the history of collecting.
