Esther Teichmann, an artist who uses still and moving image, collage and painting, will be talking about her work at an Edward Street event which is free to University of Brighton students. In her art, Teichmann creates alternate worlds that blur autobiography and fiction – and central to her work lies an exploration of the origins of fantasy and desire and how these are bound to experiences of loss and representation.
In this University of Brighton Photography and Photoworks event, she will talk on her approach to making work, the themes explored within it, her use of still and moving image and the techniques she uses for installation.
