Kate Daudy

Kate Daudy's captivating talk explores the 'memory of objects'. Daudy Explains the Chinese tradition of inscribing poetry onto everyday Objects, from pots to pipes to scrolls and then illustrates how this tradition influences her own work as an artist. Daudy inscribes poetry onto objects including abandoned wedding dresses, to illustrate themes of loss, love and the condition of women. The 'War Dress' displayed during the talk is a canvas for Wilfred Owen's poignant poem Dulce et Decorum Est bringing the audience to reflect on the horrors of war and the widows it creates.
