Artists’ Talks

Cynthia Dinan-Mitchell
Sunday, June 19 at 1pm

Based in Quebec City, Canada, artist Cynthia Dinan-Mitchell in one of the festival’s invited artists for 2016 and we are delighted to welcome her to Cupar. Her evocative installation installed in the town’s former courtroom, ‘The willow tree motif with a certain “je ne sais quoi”, makes references to the traditional willow motif, which was originally based on a story of impossible love between the daughter of a wealthy mandarin and a humble servant.

Set against the backdrop of her new installation, Cynthia will give a talk about her artwork and her inspiration for this new work, along with some insights into working as an artist and printmaker in Quebec City.

Cynthia has exhibited her work in numerous galleries and artist centres, including the National Museum of Fine Arts of Québec and the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre in Thailand. She lives and works in Québec City.

In the realm of waking dreams
Tuesday, June 21 at 2pm

Mike has created a series of permanent and temporary public art commissions across Scotland. His practice deals with, and explores, links between public art and outsider art. He enjoys making publicly sited work which explores transitional spaces that “outsider art” often inhabits as well as bleeding these practices into work for more traditional gallery spaces. Mike is particularly interested in found materials and adhocist approaches to construction. The talk will explore some of these projects and the outsiders that fascinate him.
