We sat and chatted about her practice during her residency at the Camargo Foundation, and later I caught up with her at her &quot;potluck&quot; which brought together local food producers and fellow residents for an alfresco event on the Foundation's garden terrace, her first foray into an international version of the projects she spearheads in the USA.</p> <p>Anna's work bridges ceramics and public art, exploring how art can be a vehicle for social change. A member of the Socially Engaged Craft Collective, Her work focuses on reframing our relationship to land and agriculture, and creating meaningful ways to connect with natural resources. Clay, an ancient medium that finds its way into every home - as a sink, a dish or a decorative object - is a ubiquitous and tactile material. She uses it as a springboard for public engagement, collaborating with community members who create the narratives that she weaves into the pieces specially made for the events she facilitates. Anna has been working as a public artist for 7 years and as a professional ceramic artist for 15 years.</p> <p>This episode includes music by&nbsp;Sabrina Malheiros and One Ring Zero.</p> <p>with thanks to Anna,&nbsp;Fleur Marin-Lamellet for her translations and all of the fellows and staff at the Camargo Foundation.</p> <p>More about Anna Metcalfe can be found at:<br /> <a href="http://www.annametcalfe.com">http://www.annametcalfe.com</a><br /> <a href="https://sociallyengagedcraftcollective.org">https://sociallyengagedcraftcollective.org</a><br /> and<br /> to help save the bees: <a href="http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/sustainable-agriculture/save-the-bees/">http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/sustainable-agriculture/save-the-bees/</a></p> https://archives.wpkn.org/https://archives.wpkn.org/bookmarks/listen/188732 Sat, 24 Jun 2017 11:00:00 GMT
