10:00 – 11:30 via Zoom Sunday 16th August
This workshop is open to Children of Deaf Adults over the age of 16.
Pierce Starre is a Liverpool based artist with a practice situated in performance. Pierce’s first language is British Sign Language, as both of his parents are profoundly Deaf. Previous works have explored his experience of growing up as a hearing individual in a predominantly silent household. Pierce has explored through his work the territory which he occupies between the Deaf and hearing worlds and has further critiqued intersectionality in broader social and political contexts; highlighting the restrictive nature of the institution, institutional boundaries and oppression and the spaces between self and other.
Pierce’s work has been presented at festivals nationally and internationally including Venice International Performance Art Week and at PerformIstanbul.
With the support of Metal Culture UK, Pierce Starre will be sharing a talk about his performance art work and a unique opportunity to take part in a performance to camera workshop over two sessions through Zoom. These workshops will be a great opportunity to learn more about Pierce’s work, to gain new skills in photography and to explore the relationship between photography and performance art.
