Last day

It’s 4.30am as I write this – lunchtime in Gongju. There is rain headed our way, and it’s been cooler overnight than it’s been for more than a week. I suspect today will have the promise of autumn in the air; not the crisp, bright autumn, but the wet, glowering autumn...

Updating on the Seminar

I have just signed off from my presentation at Geumgang. Skype is an imperfect technology, however amazing it is that I can be giving a presentation and asking questions live across the other side of the world. It was often quite hard to hear. That said, there were...

Seminar beginning shortly

I'm just about to join the day-long Seminar which is a feature of the Biennale encampments. It's 1.40am here in the UK - certainly the first time I've addressed a large group of people most of whom I have not yet met at that time of day! I believe the temperature has...

Their special guest is David Buckland, Founding Director of Cape Farewell. In this five-day intensive, Chris Drury shares his renowned practice of working with form, including whirlpool and vortex, fractal and wave patterns, exploring and investigating how aesthetic forms have the universal enfolded within them but are at the same time particular to individual experience.
