Save event
During her extensive career, internationally acclaimed artist Ingrid Pollard (Turner Prize nominee 2022) has broken new ground and forged pathways for younger generations, shaping Britain's understanding and histories of art, society and culture. Pollard’s practice spans a wide variety of techniques, from photography, printmaking, drawing and installation, to artist’s books, video, audio and sculpture. She combines meticulous research and experimental creative processes to make art that is simultaneously deeply personal and socially engaged. This practice is a way to question and complicate our relationship with the natural world, interrogating social constructs such as Britishness, race, sexuality, identity, and grounding the human body’s deep connection with, and marked effects on, land, sea and planet. 
Pollard is currently contributing to 'Connection, belonging and art: an encounter with Ingrid Pollard at Yarner Wood NNR', which is the result of a multi-partner collaboration between Natural England, talking on corners, South Devon College and University of Plymouth. The project aims to enable art students to work with the themes of Pollard’s work as a stepping off point to develop their own body of work, which will be exhibited as part of their degree shows. The creative process is being captured by film maker Niyaz Saghari so that other organisations can access the method and process. 
Tonight's talk arises from this project and accompanies Pollard's solo exhibition of new work, Ingrid Pollard: Three Drops of Blood, showing at Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton. Pollard's exhibition sees her creating a new series of work in response to the histories of Devon and the South West.. More information about the Natural England partnership and the Three Drops of Blood exhibition can be found on the talking on corners website.
