Over two sessions working with RCA researcher Andrew Vallance at the Freud Museum, AS students will use their own family photographs to explore how identity can be created and histories reinterpreted.
Students will use photographs from before they were born as a starting point for discussion about memory and representation through image and will use collage as a method to explore these ideas. Students work collaboratively, exchanging images and reinterpreting the narratives they see.
The second session will be two weeks later, allowing students time to work independently on creating further collages, taking new photographs or developing text to accompany their images. Students will bring this work in progress to the second session as the starting point for group discussion and further development of the work. This session will also introduce the students to. the work of other practising artists exploring these themes. Below are some photos from the day
