Between 5.30-7.00pm, in response to Sharon Kivland’s exhibition, Sarah Sparkes of GHost invited Birgitta Hosea, Peter Suchin and Forbes Morlock to interrogate ideas pertaining to ‘haunting’ in both Kivland’s work and the gallery space itself. This GHost Hosting, convined at the invitation of artist Sharon Kivland and Gallerist Domo Baal, intended to initiate an apocryphal archiving of Reproductions II – an immaterial revenant to haunt the invited guests.
Birgitta Hosea is a digital artist, and Research Leader for Performance and Course Director of M.A. Character Animation at CSM. Her current work investigates photographic manipulation and theatricality in Victorian Spirit Photography and mediumistic performances.
Peter Suchin is an artist and critic, contributing to Art Monthly, Frieze, The Guardian, and many other journals.
Sarah Sparkes is an artist, curator and researcher. She leads the GHost project. Initiated in 2008, GHost provides a supporting platform enabling invited guests to visually and conceptually manifest and interrogate the idea of the ghost.
Forbes Morlock – Beside his work with visual artists, Forbes has published on hospitality, friendship, seduction, transference, cinema, and the uncanny—as well as the writing of Jacques Derrida, Jacques Rancière, and Sigmund Freud. He has taught at SU London for more than 20 years, including leading courses to Istanbul, Florence, Edinburgh, Yorkshire and the Lake District
