Pride Heroes

Professor Dominic Janes reflects on the LGBT Pride month 2015 theme, pride heroes.

“There are of course many lgbtq heroes and many will be named in the course of Pride week in London. However, heroism takes many forms, not all of which get the publicity they deserve. In Westminster Abbey there is the tomb of the unknown warrior. I would therefore like to advocate the idea not of a tomb but of a living, shouting, parading memorial to those millions of lgbtq heroes who are, or were, only known to smaller circles of friends, lovers and colleagues.

It is important, I think, to focus not just on those who were, in contemporary terms, out and proud, but also many others who were what we might call ‘in the closet’. They found ways, more or less easily, to cope with the pressures of a society in which prejudice was rife. I am, in particular, thinking about those who have attempted to reconcile their sexual identity with their religious beliefs. In recent research that I have been carrying out I have been exploring lives lived in the ecclesiastical closet which had formed so as to construct a place in which to contain same-sex desire and to display its signs in coded forms decipherable to those in the know.

This meant that some churches in the earlier part of the twentieth century were able to provide a degree of safety and community in a time of rising homophobia. Yet, a closeted life of service to God and the community, however redemptive of personal sin, placed distinct limits on the further development and elaboration of queer self-expression. In the classic model of later twentieth-century gay liberation it was precisely through emergence from this closet interpreted as a place of religiously inspired repression that modern gay subjectivity was achieved. According to this viewpoint the duty of the closeted homosexual is to ‘come out’ and to emerge as unambiguously gay.

However, another way to look at things is to say that modern gay subjectivity was formed out of past queer cultural constructions. Because of the long history of homophobia such cultural constructions of same-sex desire are partly and inherently derived from the experience of repression, secrecy and shame. So we should salute those heroes of the past from before the act of the legalisation of same-sex acts who attempted to reconcile social justice with the truth of their own personal desires.”

Dominic Janes is UAL Professor of Cultural and Visual Studies and the author of Visions of Queer Martyrdom from John Henry Newman to Derek Jarman (University of Chicago Press, 2015).

Dominic Janes Visions of Queer Martyrdom

On 25 June Dominic Janes presents Visual Arts and Queer Secrets, where he will be in discussion with three of today’s leading exponents of queer art history and visual culture, Prof. Whitney Davis (Berkeley), Prof. Jason Edwards (York) and Prof. Reina Lewis (UAL) to explore the continued importance of sexual secrets in the year that sees the 25th anniversary of the publication of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s book Epistemology of the Closet.

The stars of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones title
As Game of Thrones reaches the season finale we head to Drama Centre London, the prestigious alma mater of three stars from the cult series, to hear more about actresses Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke and Tara Fitzgerald.

Contender for the Iron Throne Daenerys Targaryen is played by Emilia Clarke, who graduated from Drama Centre London in 2009. BA Acting Course Leader Seb Harcombe recalls:

“Emilia had this quality, as a student, which was very special and attractive – a kind of bright, spirited, devil-may-care gutsiness. She worked extremely hard to make the most of her exceptional talent, but always with a tremendous sense of humour, fun and brio that belied a deep and sometimes surprising inner strength and resilience. I remember her vividly, standing in the corridor one day after an intense rehearsal, laughing uproariously in a sparkly sequinned red costume ball gown. It’s absolutely no surprise to me that she has achieved so much, and  this combination of qualities – acting as if the world depends on it, but knowing of course that it doesn’t really –  is one that I try to instil in so many actors, going into a profession that can require so much persistence and positivity.”

Emilia has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role in Game of Thrones and was Vogue’s cover star this spring. She’s currently filming her next major film, Me Before You.

Gwendoline Christie has developed a major fan base playing warrior woman Brienne of Tarth on the show. A graduate of BA Acting at Drama Centre London, she reflects on her time as a student, saying: “The training is endlessly stimulating, exciting and tough. It provides realistic preparation, not just for the profession, but for life itself.”

Maggie, can you remind me? BA Acting Group 41 – 2004/2005 Gwendoline Christie at back  Photo: Mark Duffield

After walking the runway for Vivienne Westwood at Paris Fashion Week, Gwendoline will be back on screens later this year in Star Wars VII – The Force Awakens and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II.

Their roles in Game of Thrones have seen Emilia Clarke and Gwendoline Christie nominated for Outstanding Performance by An Ensemble in a Drama Series awards at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Annie Tyson, who taught both stars of Game of Thrones, recalls: “Both actors really connected and relished the demands of the training at Drama Centre and while they did not find it easy, as it’s a notoriously demanding course, they were completely committed and did some wonderful risky work. Both in different ways had real wit and imagination – I remember Emilia doing a monologue to camera and thinking how transparent her interior life was and I have a really strong memory of Gwen in an obscure Spanish Golden Age play being completely compelling and rather disturbing. Very different personalities but both with unique talent.”

Star of stage and screen and fellow Drama Centre London graduate Tara Fitzgerald joined the Game of Thrones cast in series 3, playing Selyse Baratheon. She’s just completed filming Legend, a major bio-pic of the Kray twins, set for release later this year.

The Game of Thrones season finale airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic. Catch more of Drama Centre London’s illustrious graduates on TV this season, including Gemma Chan in Humans on Channel and Helen McCrory and Tamsin Topolski in Penny Dreadful.

Thomas Tait takes Fashion prize in Designs of the Year

Thomas Tait

Thomas Tait’s fluidly tailored womenswear has won him the Fashion category for Designs of the Year 2015. The youngest ever graduate of Central Saint Martins’ MA Fashion, Tait has already attracted acclaim with nominations from the British Fashion Council for their Emerging Designer Award and NEWGEN sponsorship, as well as scooping the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize as early at 2010.

The Design Museum announced this week that the Designs of the Year judging panel, which includes UAL honorary fellow Anish Kapoor and associate lecturer Hilary Alexander, had chosen Thomas from a shortlist of eight contenders for the 2015 award. Thomas’s AW13/14 collection secured him the nomination, which saw the designer send sportwear-influenced designs down the runway. Vogue described the collection as: ” It’s utility, it’s uniform, austere and slick and quite the palette cleanser… it was agility futurist.”

The Designs of the Year exhibition has been extended, now running to 31 March at the Design Museum.

Ones to watch from Foundation 2015

As UAL’s summer shows season begins, we share some of the highlights from this year’s Foundation Diploma in Art and Design graduating class.

“In everyday life most objects we interact with go unnoticed, they serve their purpose and only get attention when faulty or broken. The aim of my project was to provoke reflection upon this relationship by confronting the user with a design inspired by the human body and human mannerisms. The Introvert Lamp is based on the posture of people who try to rest and shelter themselves from the environment by laying their heads down onto folded arms. When switched off, the fragile bulb is supposed to be pivoted down and to rest in a bespoke made depression within thick, protective concrete walls.”

Hannah Bottino

“For my final major project I was really captivated by plant life within the city. I wanted other people to feel the same way about urban greenery as I did. My goal at the end of the project was for the work to get people to look at urban greenery in a lovelier light. A book lent itself best to a subtle narrative of falling in love with urban greenery.”

Marlee King, Lewis Bush

“Bowie’s Alphabet is a little homage to one of my biggest inspirations – Mr David Bowie. His love for influencing others through music is what made me direct my attention to him for my project. I adore the way he shifted so easily through his characters, and it fascinates me to watch clips of him perform and totally be immersed with who he is on stage. The screen prints you see are an eclectic mix of various characters I particularly love, such as Ziggy Stardust to the right, and the Thin White Duke with Jareth the Goblin King left. I wanted to assemble the prints as if they were part of a fanatic’s bedroom wall inspired by my own childhood room. The alphabet itself is illustrated through sound, with each letter found phonetically in his music. Put on the headphones and be transported to the mind and room of a Bowie fan!”

Thomas Fung

“The idea of the work is based on the exploration of cross-dimensions,  I started my research through taking some photos in Oxford Circus, after that I deconstructed the photos into 2D drawing forms. After that, I make it as a sculpture in such form. For the strings I described it as the lights and the traffics in Oxford Circus. Finally the Light I applied is to make relationships between the exhibition site and my piece.”

Anne Elmhort

“I was inspired by the way, in which the main character, Alex, of A Clockwork Orange, befriends his reader; I’ve designed an immersive experience, where the audience move through a world coloured by Alex’s romanticised version of violence. Alex and his friends will coerce the audience to join them for a night of horrors. While being confronted with the hooligans’ lack of moral, the audience might find themselves in situations where their own morals are challenged.”

“The title of my show is ‘The Unspoken Truth’. I took inspiration from aboriginal art from the oceanic reign. Aboriginal art is consisted of abstract symbols, dots and lines. I decided to adapt this to the modern world, specifically social media sites. I explored the internet and social media sites for symbols that represented our fixation with it, as well as its influence on us. I took the symbols and turned them into patterns. I took the patterns and screen printed them over one another using vibrant colours.”

“I have noticed that the surroundings actually are not like what we usually think they supposed to be. I have experimented with micro-lens to take photographs of my pet, I was shocked when I saw the detailed texture of her hair. I realised there are many interesting things in our life we would never notice because of their scale. I am also inspired by the films, Microcosmos and The Powers of Ten, as it changed the angle how we look at the world. Everything would change if the tiny objects become massive, and it makes me changed the attitude toward things. So I want to deliver this message visually to make people see the world in a different way.”

“For my final piece called ‘Something out of nothing’ I considered sketching out my old walking frame as artwork that means a lot to me personally. My walking frame was a significant part of my life and artistic practice. I remember clinging portfolios on to my frame whilst I was struggling to walk and becoming an art project in motion. Hanging large bits of work on the handle bars to tying work on the back of my frame and completely utilising the space that was given to me. I had used it for eight long years and because of the intensive course I got rid of it. During my foundation I became stronger and more confident physically, mentally and emotionally to be able to live out my dream. I initially began by documenting my most memorable achievement with a large scale mixed media sketch, I reconsidered how a response any form of disability in general needs to be more discreet and subtle.

The outcome was four large A0 prints of an abstract and figurative interpretation of my walking frame. My work in itself is a celebration of how far I have come as an individual and an art student. By using O’s, U’s, the backs of I’s and exclamation marks I managed to create an abstract image of my Kaye walker. I planned to make it more figurative in the style of Tom Ekerlesley by using letterpress. I stopped looking at actual shapes of the Kaye walker and instead found myself concentrating on the negative and positive space. The medium of letterpress has more of a professional finish and it shows the smudges and detail of wrapped object. This is what I wanted my final piece to have because it shows how a wrapped object can be translated into figurative artwork.”

“I started out by looking at the boundary between our consciousness and the physical world, comparing it to the boundary between our virtual lives and our physical lives. That developed into an exploration of the analogue and the digital, where I focused my interest in our recent tendency to over document our own lives. More specifically, I was interested in the amount of information that we hoard in the form of photographs and text, and how hesitant we are to delete anything. With that in mind, my project developed into an exploration of various interruptions to that seemingly inevitable thought process, which ended up taking shape as hole punched film. The most interesting, and unexpected thing that happened with that was the interaction between people in the photographs and the holes which ended up looking like voids in space.”

Fredrik Tjærandsen

“My garment is based on an obsession with seeing the Minions in everyday objects. I photographed my associations and from that I have been working on extracting information – putting it on the body and at the same time considering movement. I decided to work with playful materials in order to truly catch the Minion essence.”

“In my photography, I seek to capture the unfound beauty in the world.  Aftermath is a phenomenon I have adopted to represent my search of this unfound beauty. It is a term deriving originally from agriculture referring to the grass that grows again after the harvest. In previous projects I have captured the beauty of new life in devastation, desolation and death. This time, I decided to pursue darkness.  For my final project I wanted to roam the city at night when no one was around, when everything was still. I wanted to capture the feeling of isolation and darkness in a city that is so rich and alive showing that through darkness comes light, out of darkness comes beauty.  Life is made up of many difficult dark times but through those times, you grow stronger and more beautiful than ever before. There will always be happiness, there will always be light, but you are always in control of it. You are surrounded by beauty yet you do not see it. Close both eyes, open the mind. Only then will you feel it. Only then will you see it.”

“The aim of the project was to convey the delivery of the lines in the film through typography, colour and screen prints. The idea for using only two colours came from when I created the first quote being “I know this because Tyler knows this” as my aim was to show the dual personality of the narrator. As I started taking note of quotes to use I found that the less I thought about it, the clearer the designs would be. To contribute to the simplicity of the designs, I thought it best to keep the colours to a minimum as the series of prints would look cluttered. I chose to challenge myself throughout this project as I usually go into plenty of detail in my final outcomes, however by sticking to using Helvetica I was able to play with layout and how the placement of text on a page has an effect on the viewer.”

Jessie  Heung

“I was first inspired by Cornelia Parker, Mona Hatoum and Wenda Gu, which they both created a starling atmosphere with lighting and shades surrounding in a space. Then, I created an installation of the reflection of shadow made by hair in a semi- abstract scale. The designs were influenced by the line composition of the construction buildings, which I discovered that outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates. I do not view things the way men do but to investigate the unseen side of the beauty through darkness.”

Etta Voorsanger-Brill talks build up to Foundation Show 2015

Etta Voorsanger-Brill

With the Foundation Show just two weeks away, we spoke to Foundation Graphic and Communication Design student Etta Voorsanger-Brill about how she has been working towards the show over the past ten weeks.

Tell us a bit about your work and the inspiration behind it.

Etta: As a graphic designer, communication is really key. You have to show your work all the time to an audience who don’t know you and don’t know the thoughts behind your work. I like to reflect on personal experience and use a lot of humour within my work. If someone sees something amusing or personal it instantly becomes more relatable. I think this form of communication is really something that I base my work on.

How have you been building up to the Foundation Show?

Etta: The initial stages really began with a lot of research. We started with an open brief so a lot of the process has been about trying to find my niche. For me this meant a huge focus on research. I wanted to really know my stuff before I got into it. After research it became more about thinking how I wanted to display my work and finding a way to link all the research I had done with a medium that could best display it.

How did you feel about the brief being open?

Etta: There were things that I really wanted to look at that I hadn’t had a chance to within the other briefs we had been given. I wanted to do something quite personal with a bit of humour. I wouldn’t exactly describe myself as a hoarder but I do like to collect things. I’ve got tickets, old diaries and receipts that I wanted to use to create a more personal project, which I wouldn’t have been able to do if the brief had been restricted.

How are you currently preparing for the show?

Etta: Now the initial wave of work is done it’s about finalizing my ideas and making one last piece to sum up what I have done over the course. I am also considering how I am going to communicate my project to an audience that I have never met before.

How are people feeling within your course now that the show is only two weeks away?

Etta: I think everyone feels prepared. We’ve had a strong backbone of help and support behind the build up to the show. At the same time there is also an air of feeling slightly sad about the show. It is the last thing we will be working on as a foundation course. There’s a bittersweet element to it in this respect.

How does this show differ from ones you’ve previously worked on?

Etta: It’s been a ten-week build up, so that in itself has made it a very different experience. The finality of the show is also quite different. It has helped me to decide what I feel really passionate about and create my own body of work based on that for the first time.

What are your post-show plans?

Etta: I am really excited because I am going on to study BA Graphic Design at CSM. It was something that I had kind of had my heart set on when I started the foundation but throughout the course it increasingly became what I really wanted to do and what I felt I was best at.
