Ep4 Elly Clarke ~ class(y) drag, derby china, and real fur coats
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
In this week’s episode of thisisasoapbox Sam Edward interviews Elly Clarke. Elly Clarke is interested in the impact that networks, mobility and communication technology have upon our relationships with ourselves, other people and the environment as well as upon concept of history and the ways in which histories are learned and narrated.
Elly Clarke’s multidisciplinary practice uses mediums such as photography (analogue & digital), video, performance, drawing, slide shows, songs, text, participatory, and web-based medias. Often this involves working with different groups of people from members East London Council Estates, passengers on the Trans Siberian Train from berlin to moscow; from small businesses and community centres in Birmingham to owners of portraits by a Victorian portrait artist.
They discuss issues around bringing politics into your work; how class affects the work in which you do; and how real fur coats provide weird and interesting dimanitics.
