Dates: 6 May – 18 June | Location: ICIA, Bath

Artist Margareta Kern took up ‘residence’ at the University of Bath during March and April 2010 in a project organised by ICIA (Institute of Contemporary Interdisciplinary Arts). The results of her residency go on show in a multi-media exhibition entitled Guest, from 6 May to 18 June in ICIA’s Art Space 1. Kern is in conversation with Dr Daniel Hinchcliffe (Head of Visual Arts, ICIA) at the exhibition opening.

ICIA’s theme for its programme of activities for 2010 is the place of work. In response to this Kern was based in the Department of Social and Policy Sciences where she met leading experts in the fields of work, welfare, globalisation, poverty, social policy and employment. This gave Kern an opportunity to explore, compare and contrast her own artistic methods of enquiry with those used in the sociology of work.

Kern occupied the gallery area, Art Space 1, which is en route to the busy University refectory. Kern recorded her presence with still photography, moving image and written text. Kern met with University staff that wear uniforms or protective clothing, such as physics lab technicians, security staff, postal workers, chefs and cleaners, and took a photograph as a record.

This residency is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
