Focus on Photography: Wolfgang Weileder

1.30 – 3.30pm

Friends of the Hatton

A talk by artist Wolfgang Weileder, exploring the relationship between space and time in his photographic work.

Often related to his temporary time-based and site-specific installations and sculptures, for each of his photographic projects, Wolfgang Weileder uses cameras and processes to capture changes and transformations in single images. Questioning and challenging our understanding of space, he proposes in his photograph a new reading of our environment and the interactions we have with it.

Wolfgang Weileder is a visual artist and sculptor based in Newcastle who has exhibited internationally for the past 30 years. Best known for his large-scale site-specific installations in public spaces, that create new, temporary buildings, his practice and research are concerned with exploring how we engage with public space and architecture, and our negotiation of civic and social space.

 

Wolfgang has been Professor of Contemporary Sculpture at Newcastle University since 2006.
