The Artist Talks offer the community a chance to meet the artists-in-residence at Zaratan and to gain insight into the creative process.
On March 14, at 6PM,Lindsay Benedict (US) aNd Rowley Haynes (UK) will introduce briefly their artistic practices and research themes.

>>> LINDSAY BENEDICT cultivates “the immediate” for presentation.She presents us with fragments and gestures that examine and question social relations. In her work, affect and raw emotion are often deployed to disrupt and destabilize any simple reading of human attachments. Self-enquiry and self-presentation is central to her practice, throwing light on the cultural coding and constructedness of our identities. By using her body to work through issues of race, culture, religion and gender, Benedict sets out a unique set of DIY parameters to explore. Her work has been shown in the United States, Switzerland, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, and Croatia at such venues as Berkeley Art Museum, Pacific Film Archive, Danspace, Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, Le Confort Moderne, Centrale Fies, Antonio Ratti Foundation, The Knockdown Center, Dixon Place, The Tank, Movement Research Spring Festival, Lovely DAYS Film Festival, PARMER, PS 122, Le Cyclop de Jean Tinguely, Sonnenstube, Chocolate Factory, Languedoc-Roussillon Cine?ma, Emergency Biennial, Detroit Museum of New Art (MONA), New Langton Arts, and she has works in the Art History & Classics library at the University of California, Berkeley. Benedict received a BA from Williams College, an MFA from the University of California, Berkeley and was a studio fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program.

>>> ROWLEY HAYNES is a young artist British born in London, working mainly with painting. Much of his work explores the idea of the stage mimicking real life, a true, non-cynical reflection. Observing the human ability to attach affection to things that are detached from us, projecting our identities onto foreign objects and characters. Furthermore, Haynes' work has been fuelled by the thought of something being staged: a moment of a routine pretending to be a magical flash of life, something giving a sincere illusion. Starting from the observation of ancient objects, epic characters, and strange sets, he is currently developing a play as the source material for a new series of paintings. He obtained his Foundation from the Royal Drawing School and BA in Printing and Painting, at the Glasgow School of Art. He has participate in several exhibition in the UK and abroad, such as: “The Arches” (Glasgow, 2017), “Klasse Lucander”, Universität Der Kunste (Berlin, 2018), “Klasse Lucander”, Academy of Fine Arts Munich (Munich, 2018), “GIFC”, Fisher Parrish Gallery (New York, 2018), “Glue Factory”, (Glasgow, 2018), “Planet Earth 4”, Dornoch Project Space (Glasgow, 2018), GIFC, (Los Angeles, 2019), among others.
