‘TRANSMEDIAL: Expanding Technologies in Contemporary Printmaking PS Gallery, Western Australia May-June 2021
TRANSMEDIAL: Expanding Technologies in Contemporary Printmaking took place at PS gallery, Fremantle, Western Australia,
Resonating Silence was shown as part of TRANSMEDIAL
The exhibition showcases works by eight established international artists: Paul Catanese (USA), Deborah Cornell (USA), Susanne Klein (UK), Ingrid Ledent, Santiago Pérez (AUS), Marta Pogorzelec (PL), Magda Stawarska-Beavan (UK) and Jo Stockham (UK) who explore the continuing impact of digital technologies on the printmaking field. In bringing together eight creative practitioners TRANSMEDIAL investigates expanded printmaking practices and associated themes of digital materiality, matter, and various iterations of the matrix.
“TRANSMEDIAL: Expanding Technologies in Contemporary Printmakingoriginates from our shared interest in contemporary printmaking; years of studio practice that began by specialising in traditional forms of etching and lithography followed by a growing curiosity about the rapid changes in print media caused by inclusion of new technologies. The idea for the exhibition was coined in 2018 while we worked on a joint article ‘Bringing the World to its Senses’ for IMPRINT magazine questioning the abundance of printmaking techniques driven by technology and its impact on conceptual aspects of print. At the same time drawing upon our discussion with artists while attending international printmaking conferences; Impact10, Spain 2018, and A Green Dream, Japan, 2019 highlighted a need for investigating the impact of digital technologies upon traditional printmaking techniques”
