    Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie (Recorded at HOME by RM)

    Russell & Robert meet artists Ronan McKenzie and Joy Yamusangie at new multifunctional creative space HOME, on Hornsey Road, North London. We explore their current joint-exhibition 'WATA, Further Explorations'. Taking root in Mckenzie and Yamusangie’s first formal collaboration, a short film of the same name (produced at the beginning of 2020), 'WATA' weaves together considerations of ancestry, cross cultural connections, music and migration. To watch 'WATA' online during lockdown, and to learn more about this extraordinary new centre for art, please visit: https://www.homebyrm.space/


    Ronan Mckenzie is a London-based photographer, curator, and the publisher of HARD EARS. Her photography focuses on themes that unearth hidden beauty and cultural imagery. Visit Ronan at: https://www.ronanmckenzie.co.uk/


    J Yamusangie is a mixed media artist working across illustration, printmaking, typography, poetry, ceramics, collage and painting, all with a central theme of autobiography. Visit Joy at: https://joyyamusangie.com/


    Born out of the necessity to be seen and heard, HOME presents a considered curation of exhibitions from leading and exciting artists. Their lounge and co-workspace stimulate through a library of literature and arts, setting the scene for our events programme which aims always to connect and inspire. Being a modern hybrid of an art gallery and a community events space, at the heart of HOME is the aim to inspire, share and support. HOME takes ownership over cultivating our community and creating space for us to be, with a library and creative work space to be shared and enjoyed. HOME is one of very few black owned art spaces within London, and one of the only to be artist led, with a leading focus on supporting Black and Indigenous People of Colour. HOME responds directly to the personal and communal need for a more honest and representative space, that cares deeply for the artists we present and the community of people that we welcome in to our space. HOME offers a considered curatorial and events programme which highlights our founding concept; to truly contextualise artists, and continually transform to support the community we are built for.

    Yinka Ilori MBE (Live at London Podcast Festival)

    Yinka Ilori MBE (Live at London Podcast Festival)

    Talk Art LIVE!!! Recorded on stage in London's Kings Cross!!! Robert & Russell meet Yinka Ilori MBE, the London based multidisciplinary artist of a British-Nigerian heritage, who specialises in storytelling by fusing his British and Nigerian heritage to tell new stories in contemporary design. This episode was recorded live at Kings Place for the London Podcast Festival, on Tuesday 22nd September 2020.


    Ilori began his practice in 2011 up-cycling vintage furniture, inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and West African fabrics that surrounded him as a child. Humorous, provocative and fun, each piece of furniture he creates tells a story, bringing Nigerian verbal traditions into playful conversation with contemporary design. The studio now consists of a team of colour-obsessed architects and designers, with the expertise and capacity to take on large-scale architectural and interior design projects. The studio continues to experiment with the relationship between function and form, with an output that sits between traditional divisions of art and design.


    In this episode we discuss Yinka's most recent projects including 'Better Days Are Coming I Promise', Blackfriars, London, the 2020 artwork commissioned by the official charity of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust; 'Colour Palace' at Dulwich Picture Gallery; the group show 'Get Up Stand Up Now', Somerset House; 'Happy Street' for London Festival of Architecture 2019. Further solo exhibitions include If Chairs Could Talk, The Shop At Bluebird, 2015; This is Where It Started, The Whitespace Gallery, Lagos, 2014; Just Africa, Stockholm, 2014; It Started With a Parable, Jaguar Shoes, London Design Week, 2013.

    Chila Kumari Singh Burman (New Year's Special Episode)

    Chila Kumari Singh Burman (New Year's Special Episode)

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! TALK ART CONTINUES!!! Russell & Robert meet iconic British artist Dr Chila Kumari Singh Burman who has recently transformed the front of Tate Britain into a celebration of bright lights and swirling colour for their annual Winter Commission. This extraordinary work has brought much needed joy to Londoners during the recent lockdown, due to its outdoors location on Tate's Millbank façade.


    Since the late-1970s, Burman has explored the experiences and aesthetics of Asian femininity in paintings and installations, photography and printmaking, video and film. In more recent works, this theme has taken on a new power and vibrancy. Challenging stereotypical assumptions of Asian women, her work is informed by popular culture, Bollywood, fashion, found objects, the politics of femininity, the celebration of feminity; self-portraiture exploring the production of her own sexuality and dynamism; the relationship between popular culture and high art; gender and identity politics.  


    Her magnificent current Tate Britain installation, "Remembering A Brave New World", combines Hindu mythology, Bollywood imagery, colonial history and personal memories. Inspired by the artist’s childhood visits to the Blackpool illuminations and her family’s ice-cream van, Burman covers the façade of Tate Britain with vinyl, bling and lights. She changes the figure of Britannia, a symbol of British imperialism, into Kali, the Hindu goddess of liberation and power. The many illuminated deities, shapes and words are joined by Lakshmibai, the Rani (queen) of Jhansi. Lakshmibai was a fierce female warrior in India’s resistance to British colonial rule in the 19th century.


    Burman is celebrated internationally for her radical feminist practice, spanning printmaking, drawing, painting, installation and film. Her Punjabi and Liverpudlian heritage enrich her self-expressive work. Burman mashes up stereotypes to create new identities, beyond the limitations imposed on South Asian women in a British cultural context. The commission opened to coincide Diwali, the Festival of Light. It is a celebration of new beginnings, the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness. "Remembering A Brave New World" takes inspiration from the luminous struggles and victories of the past to offer hope for a brighter future.

    Stephen Fry (Christmas Special Episode)

    Merry Christmas Everyone!!! For this special Christmas Talk Art, Russell & Robert meet Stephen Fry, the legendary British actor, writer, comedian and all-round national treasure!!! This feature-length special episode was recorded remotely during lockdown from his home in Norfolk!


    We learn about Stendhal Syndrome where people faint upon looking at artworks of great beauty, the history of the Royal Academy (where he is a trustee), his admiration for Velázquez's 'Portrait of Pope Innocent X', his memories of meeting artists Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst plus what it was like to have his portrait painted by artists including Jonathan Yeo and Maggi Hambling (now part of the National Portrait Gallery's collection). We discuss art and mental health and discover the works he collects and lives with including 1920s portrait photographs by Cecil Beaton, a series of portrait paintings by Annie Kevans, Maggi Hambling ‘dragon sunrises’ and sea paintings and Howard Hodgkin’s Olympic print ‘Swimming’ (2011) that Robert sold to Stephen back in 2012! We consider Oscar Wilde’s lasting impact on art & the art world, the bad taste of global dictators and listen to his fascinating thoughts on the history of nudity in art including paintings of Adam & Eve and Saint Sebastian. Plus Stephen reads us a famous parable by Oscar Wilde - what more could you ask for this festive season??!!! Happy Holidays!!! Thank you for supporting and listening to Talk Art this year.

    Lindsey Mendick

    Lindsey Mendick

    Season 8 continues!!! Russell & Robert meet leading artist Lindsey Mendick in Margate on the eve of Robert's 40th birthday!!!


    We adore the autobiographical works of Lindsey Mendick whose personal memories are launchpads for complex, ambitious immersive installations filled to the brim with wild and exuberant ceramic sculptures and more recently paintings and textile works (which she collaborates on with her mother). Mendick's work has a gothic sensibility with themes of gruesomeness, disgustingness and repulsion frequently reappearing. Her oeuvre is an exhilarating exploration of the abject in everyday banality. We discuss her recent show at CCA Goldsmiths curated by Sarah McCrory, her partnership with artist Guy J Oliver and their new project space in Margate called QUENCH.


    Visit Lindsey's official website www.lindseymendick.com/ and follow her on Instagram @LindseyMendick
    Plus please visit, support and follow QUENCH Gallery, the new artist space @QuenchGallery in Margate, Kent.
    Linsey's work will be on display in Spring 2021 at Carl Freedman Gallery, Margate as part of group show 'Breakfast Under the Tree' curated by Russell Tovey.
    Whilst her forthcoming solo show will be at Cooke Latham Gallery, London.

Fantastic!

Love all the episodes of last season!
You two are not afraid to share information, it's so good to hear about the proces of other artist! The (art) world needs this kind of information to deal with art and artist.
