This Thursday, Oxford Student PEN are hosting an evening in celebration and exploration of the relationship between text and image.

We will be screening an adaptation of a novel about the loss of language; and an installation that examines the relationship between language and photographs. A short film by Kevin Jackson of PEN’s recommended title ‘The Last of the Vostyachs’, by Diego Marani’s about the last surviving speaker of an ancient European language, will open the evening. This will be followed by a screening of ‘Endless Renovation’, previously exhibited at the Tate Britain, by award-winning artist Corin Sworn. We are delighted to announce that Kevin Jackson and Corin Sworn will be present for a Q&A session. The evening will conclude with a drinks reception, courtesy of Dedalus publishers.

Corin Sworn is the newly appointed Visual Arts Fellow at St. Anne’s College and the Ruskin School of Art. Her work poignantly and often mysteriously uses different media, such as film, photography, and projection, to craft stories, but often these are accompanied by a strange sense of loss. Here is a recent review of one version of the piece she will be discussing on Thursday, followed by a video of Corin discussion her own work.  Come along on Thursday if you want to see more.
