11 July 2011

On 14 July we are excited to be welcoming Semiconductor back to FACT for the Meet the Artists event taking place at 6.30pm in The Box. 

The artist duo will be talking about the research and production of their first UK solo show, Worlds in the Making, a body of work that was developed during their residency in the Galapagos Islands in the mist of an exploding volcano. They will also be discussing their relationship as artists with the natural world, a recurring theme within their artistic practise.

Dr Jan Zalasiewicz, geologist, senior lecturer at the University of Leicester and author of The Earth After Us will accompany Semiconductor for the event. Jan will reflect on the earth’s natural phenomena and join the artists for an open discussion about the relationship between art and science.  

For an introduction to Semiconductor, take a look at previous FACT blog posts or visit the artists’ website.

You can buy tickets for Meet the Artists online here, in person at the Box Office or by calling  0871 902 5737.
