Finding the venue

‘I’ve always played every amp I’ve ever had full up, because rock and roll is supposed to be played loud. Also, that’s how you get your sustain.’ [Ritchie Blackmore, Deep Purple]

‘No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.’ [Voltaire] How might the artist in question sustain themselves through concept?

‘My nervous system is enfeebled, only work in oils can sustain me.’ [Paul Cezanne] How might our artist sustain themselves through process?


Sharon Kivland is an artist, writer, Reader in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, and at times a tutor at Wimbledon College of Art, UAL. She is a keen reader, thinking about what is put at stake by art, politics, and psychoanalysis. She is editor of the journal Transmission Annual (Artwords Press) and author of the frivolously entitled series Freud on Holiday (Cube Art editions and information as material). Her work, which lies at the intersection of public political action and private subjectivity, is represented by DOMOBAAl, London, Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer, Düsseldorf, and Galerie des petits carreaux, Paris.
