Kunsthochschule Mainz is hosting an online lecture by Walter Scott, Toronto,
on Tuesday, 10. November 2020, at 18.30
In this presentation, Walter Scott will give an overview of the past ten years of his art practice, focusing on the relationship between the fiction and reality of the author and the work. He will speak about his fictional comic book character, Wendy, as well as his more gallery-focused installations, drawings, and sculptures. He will discuss how sculptural, material processes can stand as metaphors for experiences, and how that is then re-integrated into narrative fiction.
Walter Scott b. 1985, is an interdisciplinary artist working across comics, drawing, video, performance and sculpture. His comic series, Wendy, chronicles the continuing misadventures of a young artist in a satirical version of the contemporary art world. Wendyhas been featured in Canadian Art, Art in America, and published online on the New Yorker. Recent exhibitions include The Scrawled Heel of the Real, Ashley (Berlin), and The Pathos Of Mandy, at the ISCP, New York. Walter Scott was recently an artist-in-residence, at the ISCP, in Brooklyn, New York. His new graphic novel, Wendy, Master of Art, is now available from Drawn & Quarterly.
