Process: Maria Servellón
Time & Location
About the Event
Vulnerability and Identity within the Digital
Viewers see the artist, Maria Servellon, present her moving digital/glitch art while talking about identity and vulnerability, which is the basis of her art. ln finding "beauty within the errors", the art reflects on the beauty of letting viewers view artists' doubts, self-discovery, and amplification of artistic voice. Viewers will listen in on the driving concept of experimentation, improvisation, and play and the solid connections both artist and viewer arrive to.
Process is a series of talks with artists and performers who speak to whichever part of their process they choose, with equal time for audience questions and comments. Artists may present on old or new works, thoughts on a concept, an experience, or anything related to the art-making process. These talks dig deeper into the practice of art-making. What is learned when things don’t work out? How do we know when something is completed? Who is the work for? What is a first exhibition like? What is the last show of a long tour like? What does it feel like to diverge from a long-explored aesthetic? What is a favorite aspect of craft? Exploring the answers to questions like this and more can bring us further into our own creative process and connect us more deeply to the works we already love.
