Creative Lives – Helen McGhie

Prairie dog singingCreative Lives is a series of lectures about how artists work, live and thrive in the arts and creative industries.

Tuesday 19 March 4.00-5.00pm – Room 1, The Gateway, City Campus, Sunderland University

Helen McGhie will be speaking – “My practice investigates interiority and the photographic gaze through the still and moving image. It considers how identity might be represented in relation to the notion of the Gothic, where ‘haunted spaces’ are affected by a past that disrupts the present. Images of the female protagonist, curiosities, enigmatic spaces and remote places establish fictitious documentaries. I’m currently working on my practice-led PhD ‘Stargazing at the “Invisible”: Photography and the Power of Obscured Light – Collaborations between the commercial sector (Kielder Observatory) and photographic practice’ at the University of Sunderland.”
