• Thinking On Your Feet

Britton, Alison, 2016, Conference or Workshop, Thinking On Your Feet at The Peter Dormer Lecture, London, UK, 28 Nov 2016.

Abstract or Description:

Alison Britton’s practice over the past few decades has explored both visual and verbal language, more or less in tandem. Making with clay and making with words have become interdependent. Reading and looking, it need hardly be said, have always been part of the process. Form and Fiction was the title of a solo exhibition she had in Germany in 1995, and the idea of fiction and literature, as much as objective or analytical writing, is still close to her inclination to make.
Her lecture will follow particular connections that have fed into her understanding and her work. She sees uncertainty - ‘not knowing’ entirely what you are going to make or write - as the real beginning of invention, even in the familiar territories of ceramics and writing.
