Plug In ICA | Artist Talk by Karen AsherFree

Plug In ICA is proud to present an artist talk by Karen Asher in conjunction with her solo exhibition Class. Asher’s body of work engages the figure in location, the body in movement, the mundane in tension with the surreal, captured in moments of joy, melancholy and resilience. Her images offer a set of circumstances that enliven the vulnerability felt in the every day. For Class, the poignancy of life is imaged and imagined through her subjects on screen and in portrait, highlighting the empowering effect of improv, performance and pleasure. In this new work, Asher uses the camera to condition spaces of agency, visibility and confidence, allowing an openness at the heart of what is seen and felt. Astute and playful, Asher’s approach to composition is instigated by the care, rigour and sensitivity inherent in her process. The camera lens in Asher’s hands has the possibility of offering respite from hardship and struggle.
In celebration of Asher’s solo exhibition, a karaoke and dance party, featuring a performance by The Pinc Lincolns, follows the artist talk.
