Parley: Katri Walker in conversation with Noe Mendelle

Posted on Monday 5th August, 2013

Artist Katri Walker’s multi channel audio-visual installations are equally at home in the worlds of contemporary art, portraiture and documentary film-making. In this Parley event, the artist will discuss the meeting points between visual art, documentary and film with Noe Mendelle, an internationally renowned documentary maker, Director of the Scottish Documentary Institute and research professor at Edinburgh College of Art.

Walker’s commissioned artwork for this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival, jointly commissioned with NVA, uses the Scottish landscape as a medium to explore her wider concerns. An Equilibrium Not of this World was commissioned in association with NVA’s extraordinary Speed of Light project, and draws on running and specifically hill-running to reflect on man’s complex and highly intimate connection to the land.

This event takes place within a major architectural artwork by Krijn de Koning in Edinburgh College of Art’s iconic Sculpture Court.
