Snow Q: Behind the scenes at the installation… with Dagmara and Wendy by Maria Jastrzębska

spotlight 2019 jan

Dagmara and Wendy recently gave a talk at the Phoenix Arts Association (Phoenix Brighton) about their work for Snow Q, our collaborative project to re-imagine Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen story.

Phoenix Brighton is the largest South East arts organisation which hosts exhibitions, workshops and art events and also provides studios for over 100 local artists and designers. Both Wendy and Dagmara have their studios there and, as a part of Phoenix monthly Spotlight talks, they were invited to talk about their individual practice as well as their collaboration on the Snow Q project.

It’s a wonderful insight into how artists work and what inspires them. And it was lovely to see a full house which included not only other Phoenix artists but a new audience who had seen our Snow Q event and wanted to hear about our Visual Team inspirations and have an opportunity to discuss their interpretation. Thanks to Bernard G Mills who filmed the whole thing you can watch it here on the link below. It includes Rosie Powell’s fantastic footage put together by Wendy along with Wendy and Dagmara’s photographs and images. Rosie Powell’s documentary about the project is still being edited but will follow in a post soon!

Here is Dagmara’s and Wendy joint presentation on the Snow Q project:
