OVADA Art Talks – Aliki Braine
26 May at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are delighted to welcome the Photographer Aliki Braine as the second guest in our online OVADA Art Talk series.
As part of our ongoing series of informal weekday morning talks, we invite professionals working in the creative industries to talk about their projects and contemporary practices. The series provides insights into specific cross-disciplinary areas of the arts and culture sector. The talks are held online via ‘ZOOM‘ – a widely used video communication platform.
Art Journalist Romina Provenzi will this week be joined by Artist and Photographer Aliki Braine to discuss her analogue process in the darkroom and her approach to the photographic negative as an object to be manipulated. The pair will also explore Braine’s recent body of work ‘A Thousand Fallen Blossoms’.
Aliki Braine – Biography
Aliki Braine (b. 1976, Paris) studied at The Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford University, The Slade School of Fine Art, London and The Courtauld Institute of Art where she was awarded a distinction for her masters in 17thcentury painting.
Her work is interested in exploring the physical nature of photographic images and the debt photography owes to the history of western European painting. Often folding, drawing with ink, punching holes or overlaying her negatives with adhesive labels, she seeks to acknowledge the photograph as an object and the image as a construct.
Recent exhibitions include solo and two person shows in London, Vienna, Madrid and Paris and group exhibitions including: ‘The Living’s Easy’, Flowers East, London, 2006, ‘On the (im)possibility of a pure praise poem’, Man & Eve Gallery, London2013, ‘Material Light’, Kulturni Centar, Belgrade, Serbia, 2015 and ‘Evidences du Réel’, Musée d’Art de Pully, Lausanne, 2017.
Aliki is an associate lecturer for Camberwell College of Art, University of the Arts London and a regular lecturer at the National Gallery, the Wallace Collection and Christie’s Education
