A Storytelling Research Group Talk
The first Storytelling Research Group talk for SODA will be given by Andrew Kötting - one of Britain’s most original and profound artists.
“We spend a lot of time peering over our shoulders at the artists we’ve lost, forgetting that, if we look for them, some of the greatest are among us now.” – Stewart Lee – Clown
“Andrew Kotting's thirty year oeuvre to date has moved from early live-art inflected, often absurdist pieces, through darkly comic shorts teasing out the melancholy surrealism at the heart of contemporary Englishness, to ten resolutely independent feature films that take landscape and journeys as the springboards for visually striking and structurally inventive enquiries into identity, belonging, history and notions of community. ” – Gareth Evans – Vertigo
