CCA,Lagos Artist-in-Residence Albert Potrony Talk, Sat 27th Nov 2010, 2pm
In another pioneering initiative Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos is pleased to present a collaborative international art residency programme. In collaboration with the internationally renowned London based art organisation Gasworks, we are pleased to present artist Albert Potrony who will be based at CCA, Lagos for 5 weeks from 1sth November to 7th December 2010.
Artist-in-residence Talk, Saturday 27th November 2pm
Meet, greet and interact with Albert after his presentationand his research interest whilst in Lagos.
During his stay in Lagos his research will focus on Lagos Churches and Pastors
I would like to contact male and female pastors from a variety of churches that represent various sections of the population. I am interested in having a conversation about their journey to becoming a pastor, looking at various elements of the religious discourse/language – Their Calling, their Mandate, moments of Epiphany, what Deliverance means to them and their relationship to ‘miracles’.
The 2nd part will focus on Lagosians
In a very simple way I would like to document conversations with Lagosians asking them a few simple questions:
What Faith means to you? How Faith affects your everyday life? Have you had any moment of ‘epiphany’ or of understating something about yourself through your beliefs? What does ‘deliverance’ mean to you? Do you believe in miracles?
