Little Interview January 19

Every month we ask the same set of questions to someone collaborating with us. Over the last two years, we have interviewed diverse members of the Glucksman community - artists, academics, staff members, guests, audiences and workshop participants. The responses are funny, inspiring, revealing and always a great read.

This month, we feature artist Brigitte Kowanz whose work is currently on display in Gallery 2 as part of Prism: the art and science of light

What are you reading?
Currently I am reading a book by the Suisse media scholar Felix Stalder, called ‘Kultur der Digitalität’. Digitalization has been a big field of interest for me recently.

Favourite museum? 
I love Tate Modern in London.

Best performance? 
Anne Imhof’s ‘Faust’.  

Most treasured possession? 
My works and my dog called Lou. 

Work(s) of art that inspire you? 
Works by Duchamp, experimental filmmaker Peter Kubelka and many others. 

Lightbulb moment?
When I first started working with light in the late 70s, the transformation from dark to light really got me. So the lightbulb moment happened quite literally back then.  

Guilty pleasure? 
Sweets.

What would you like to be doing right now? 
Going to Cork to see the show.
