Ellen Sampson, the London-based artist, researcher, curator and maker of shoes, will be giving a lecture on her work entitled 'Worn; touch attachment and the affects of wear'. Using film, photography and installation, Sampson’s work explores the relationships between bodily experience, memory and clothing. Her work sits between fashion object and art work exploring the spaces where clothing, the body and performance intersect. In particular, she addresses the ways that garments can become records of lived experience and how these traces of these experiences can be read or understood by the viewer.
