In the 1960s this late Pre-Raphaelite mural was painted over in white due to damp problems, the difficulties posed by restoration, and the fashion in church decoration at the time. A successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid by the Hoylandswaine Arts Group means that the original mural can now be restored. At the launch event for this project held on 29th October 2011 the art historian and writer Simon Poe gave an overview of the artist and the significance of this particular work. This event was followed by a study day. Please follow the link for details of the study day.

The project is designed to initiate new relationships and exchanges among the academic, policy, curating and artistic communities. Supported by the European Science Foundation (Humanities in the European Research Area, HERA). Traumatic pasts have complex and often dramatic influences on the present. The conference will explore creative engagements with controversial pasts in art practice, curating and museums, establishing a dialogue among diverse participants.

An interview with artist Guido van der Werve (b.1973, Netherlands) on the occasion of his exhibition ‘Minor Pieces’, at Site Gallery, Sheffield, 21 March – 30 May 2009.

Guido van der Werve constructs possible scenarios and imaginary realities where various geographies collide in order to generate momentary sensations of unusual, dream-like intensity. Trained as a pianist, the artist aims to create a visual and conceptual language that manifests a similar directness to the one that is typical in music.

In this interview, Guy Ben-Ner contemplates the point that life and film are inter-connected; that due to his performances being captured on to ‘live film’, the camera imprints moments of the artist’s life, family and of the historical and religious elements that help sculpt Ben-Ner’s works. The question of where does an artist draw the line between the personal and the professional appears often in Ben-Ner’s films.
