Josie Rae Turnbull and Kate Tipler
Bringing together the work of artists Josie Rae Turnbull and Kate Tipler, PARROTING opens a conversation on human perspectives of nature in the built environment. Just as a parrot mimics human language without understanding the linguistic meaning of the sounds it is making, so do we echo fragments of what we see in the world around us, without having the capacity to fully understand these forms. By extension, the artists mimic this action, reflecting parts of reality by taking photographs and reproducing them in inverted forms.
Josie is an artist and art educator from London, who is currently studying for an MA in Art and Science at Central Saint Martins after a number of years living and working in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She is currently expanding her lens-based practice into multimedia printmaking and cast sculpture.
Kate is an artist and writer from Hastings who is now based in Bristol. She recently returned from HCMC, Vietnam where she lived for seven years. Before this, she studied Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths University and she has also worked as a journalist, editorial photographer and educator. More recently, her practice has given her the space to experiment further with photography alongside textiles, installation and participatory performative events.
