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.

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.
This salon event was organised in collaboration with TCCE, The Culture Capital Exchange.
