Join Two Queens for a talk and discussion by artist Joey Holder and Professor in Marine Ecology Beth Scott
Taking place alongside Joey Holder’s exhibition ‘Cryptid’ at Two Queens Leicester, this talk and discussion will provide insight into the research and development processes surrounding the project, and the ways that Professor Scott’s Marine Ecology research has helped to inform and shape the exhibition.
Joey Holder is an artist whose work raises philosophical questions of our universe and things yet unknown, regarding the future of science, medicine, biology and human-machine interactions. Holder has exhibited widely in the UK & internationally including the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Athens Biennale, Design Museum, Sydney Biennale, Transmediale & Venice Biennale. She is the director of SPUR, an online platform which supports digital practice and the director of Chaos Magic, an arts project space in Nottingham.
Beth Scott is a Professor in Marine Ecology, University of Aberdeen. She conducts multi-disciplinary research in marine ecology with focus on using combinations of instrumentation for identification of critical marine habitats and temporal clues where/when mobile predator and prey species interact. Her recent research portfolio has been directed at the understanding of the effects of marine renewable energy systems on multi-trophic interactions to better incorporate ecosystem service and climate change knowledge into effective policies.
This event is taking place on Zoom, subtitling will be available during the session. This project is made possible by public funding from The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
