Dr Véronique Chance
Veronique's cross-disciplinary practice reveals strong interests in the uses of printmaking, photography and moving image as reproductive media, whilst sharing links with sculpture and performance. In recent work she has used the activity of running and technological mediation as a means of bridging human physical exertion with an immediate, lived experience of the outside environment. Within this context notions of liveness, transmission and broadcast have been at the heart of her artwork.
Recent projects include: The Great Orbital Ultra Run, a solitary run and artwork that took place over nine consecutive days around the inside of the M25 and was relayed live from her mobile phone to the Stephen Lawrence Gallery in London. The work was re-configured in 2014 as The M25 in 4,000 Images, an extendible printed bookwork/sculpture and installation produced from digital data into tangible printed form. This was shown at Seacourt, The Centre for Contemporary Printmaking in Bangor, Northern Ireland and at the Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery in 2014. Véronique is currently involved in the development of the RE:PRINT International Research Project with Mark Graver from the Wharepuke Print Studio in New Zealand, with the aim of promoting international networks in discussion and exchange. This will launch in July 2015 with the Exhibition and Symposium RE:PRINT/ RE:Present at the Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge.
Véronique has extensive experience in teaching and gained her PhD at Goldsmiths College in 2012. She has been Course Leader of the MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge since March 2013.
