David Russell, Corpus Christi College/Oxford University – “Ruskin’s Vision”
David Russell will examine how Ruskin’s writing insists on the urgency of images – ethical, social and aesthetic – by paying to them an iconoclastic mode of attention.
Sergio Delgado, Harvard University – “Lygia Clark, At Home with Objects”
Some notes on Lygia Clark’s relational objects, the ephemeral objects she constructed out of household materials from the 1960s onwards, building on her experiments in participation and abstraction in art. Regression and ambiguity are the key terms of my reading of Clark’s relational objects, as are the writings of Marion Milner and José Bleger, as well as Clark’s own reading of object relations theory. Attention as it is cultivated in the pre-symbolic, regressive engagement that Clark’s relational objects demand is the principal focus of my contribution. The rise of consumer culture and the bourgeoning presence of objects of consumption in everyday life is the background for my engagement with objects relations theory and Clark’s relational objects.
