What are artists thinking and doing now? We hope you enjoy watching the eighth in our Three Questions series, with artist Lucy Skaer.

Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Acting Head of Programme of Kettle’s Yard, says: ‘The idea for the series was inspired by Jim and Helen Ede, the founders of Kettle’s Yard. They hosted, commissioned and collected artists all of their life. Most of their friends were artists, and artists were undoubtedly the people they respected and trusted the most. So in this moment of change, it only makes sense for us to turn to artists and their worldviews to help make sense of our new normal. I am asking artists who have worked at Kettle’s Yard to answer to three questions with a short video. Enjoy!’

Watch artist Lucy Skaer’s response, filmed in her home in Glasgow, Scotland.

About Lucy Skaer

Lucy Skaer (Cambridge, 1975) is primarily a sculptor who works across various mediums, including print, film and drawing. Her works often depict relationships between abstraction and the direct material nature of objects. They are drawn from historical references, which are translated and re-contextualized in new mediums and places. Alongside her solo practice, Lucy Skaer works in the duo Nashashibi/Skaer with London-based artist Rosalind Nashashibi.

Lucy Skaer was part of ‘The world, abridged’, a group exhibition that took place at Kettle’s Yard in 2005 and that brought together the work of five –then young– artists working on the relations between materials, place, form and content.
