Site WritingCreative Exchange Institute and Tasmanian College of the Arts present Jane Rendell

Site-Writing: An Ethical Practice?

Consisting of readings, commentaries and conceptualisations, in this presentation Jane Rendell will explore the transitional spaces in her site-writing practice. Drawing on spatial textual constructions, which configure and reconfigure voices, words and images, as places through which one can relate to another, Jane will explore the ways in which her practice engages with ethical dilemmas.

Jane is an academic and writer with a training in architectural design and history, whose work crosses architecture, art, feminism, history and psychoanalysis. She has developed concepts of 'critical spatial practice' (2002/6) and 'site-writing' (2007/10) through such authored books as Site-Writing (2010), Art and Architecture (2006), and The Pursuit of Pleasure (2002). Her new book concerning transitional spaces in architecture and psychoanalysis will be published by IB Tauris in December 2015.

Jane is Professor of Architecture and Art at the Bartlett, UCL, and is currently Thinker in Residence with the Tasmanian College of Arts/Creative Exchange Institute.

Please note that this special Arts Forum presentation is on
Friday 13 November, 12.30 - 1.30pm
