Public History group : Memory, place, identity
Saturday March 10th 2012 10.30 for 11
Christine McCauley MA (RCA) University of Westminster
Christine gave an interesting talk that took further her earlier work presented at a public history conference . As she explained, it started as an exploration of my troubled relationship with my father, a veteran of the Burma conflict during WW2 and resulted in 2 journeys to the North Eastern frontier states of India, searching for the remnants of the British presence there and the ‘ties that bind’ countries and peoples geographically so far apart. As a mixed media artist I use a wide range of media and techniques. The evocative potential of materials and processes is an important part of my practice.
