eca Visiting Artist - Wednesday

Visiting speaker Jo Longhurst will be in college on Wednesday. Hear her talk in the Main Lecture Theatre at 11am. All welcome.

Jo Longhurst is a London-based artist, whose lens-based works include photographs, stereoscopic installations and projections, video, and performance. She is interested in Perfection: how it shapes our personal identities, and our social and political systems; and how an idea of perfection informs the history and practice of photography.

Jo studied Russian with Politics at the University of Leeds, and Fine Art at the Royal College of Art, London. She is currently a Leverhulme Fellow at the European Centre for Photographic Research (eCPR), Newport, Wales, where she is developing a new project, Perfect, an interrogation of the process of training, exploring the physical and emotional experiences of elite gymnasts.
