An Interview with Grace Woodcock

María Gracia de Pedro interviews Grace Woodcock.

Grace Woodcock is a British artist based in London. Her latest solo show GUT-BRAIN at Castor gallery in late 2020 examines the gut's role as the original brain, 1960s space-age and soft furnishing. 


MG: I discovered your work thanks to my friend and curator Linda Rocco during the pandemic and I really felt in love with your practice. What I saw so far are sculptural works, but when I looked at your CV I could see you own a MA in Painting. Please, tell me about the evolving process from painting to sculpture. 

GW: Thank you so much! I studied painting at undergraduate too but sculptural elements were already coming into my work. I’d cast wax and silicone elements, make table-like works and stacked, layered paintings. At the RCA I was struggling to achieve the tactility that I wanted through image-making. I started padding out flat work and bringing in textile and upholstery elements on flat forms to begin with. Then it was through learning to use 3D software that something clicked. As you use these programs you have a working view from the top, front, right, and perspective profiles. The wireframe line drawings generated by the software completely changed the way I was imagining new sculptural work.

F-Razzor Fundariser / Engagement Arts NL

F-Razzor

8 March - 15 March 2021


F-Razzor is an artist-run solidarity fundraiser that will take place from the 8th of March till the 15th March 2021. Its aim is to address abuse of power and inequities in the Dutch art field through supporting survivors of sexual abuse and financing initiatives that aid in the prevention of future misconduct. F-Razzor is a reaction to sexually abusive and violent behavior within the dutch art scene. Testimonies have revealed a systemic problem in our field and questions of how to tackle this situation in a meaningful way have flared up within our community of Rijksakademie Alumni.

"Working collectively is not always a poetic choice; I love it, but it is often necessary. It is more like depending on the collective organization to continue making art without being so much on the margins."

Marie Monteiro is a visual artist, audiovisual director, dyke and piranha based in São Paulo, Brazil. She graduated in Arts at the Universidade Federal Fluminense in 2019, integrates the Revolta Collective, performed at the 11th Berlin Biennale in 2020, and develops the ongoing project "Contêmpiranha - for contemporary piranhas." Her practice invites us to think about how we inhabit our bodies and build reciprocity and violent relationships in lesbian and queer ghettos. In February 2021, the artist talked to Wisrah Villefort about her process, research, and future projects.

Short information about the curators: 


Alida: 

I’m a curator and a writer, who’s worked within the arts for 16 years, in one way or another. I’ve worked as an exhibition producer at Spritmuseum, a gallery manager at Elastic Gallery (both in Stockholm) and I’ve been a curator at Göteborg Konsthall. As a freelancer I’ve attained quite a lengthy CV, so this is just a fragment of what I’ve worked with over the years. Ashik and I started at SKF/Konstnärshuset in August last year with me as its artistic director and Ashik as the curator. Two roles that we try to collaborate in as much as possible. 


Ashik: 

I founded the online magazine and curatorial art platform C-print 8 years ago now and have prior to my position here as curator at SKF/Konstnärshuset done quite a bit of freelance work as a curator. I’ve also served as the Artistic Manager of Market Art Fair in the past and am currently a contributor for various art magazines.

Otranto, a film by Ionian Bisai / Sotiris Tsiganos, film still, 2020

Otranto, by Ionian Bisai and Sotiris Tsiganos (Latent Community,) is a film that acts as a portrait of a tragic loss during the outbreak of the Civil War in Albania, back in 1997. On 28th March 1997, at the port of Vlorë, 120 people boarded at the boat Katër i Radës bound for Italy. In the Otranto Canal, the five times bigger Italian navy warship Sibilla intercepted the Albanian ship using military manoeuvres and naval blockade. With all its sociopolitical ramifications, the Katër i Radë and surrounding sea became the coffin for 81 people who were trying to escape war and poverty by aiming to migrate from Albania to Italy.
