The British School at Athens: Artist's Talk by Returning Resident W.K.Lyhne

Join us to hear returning resident W.K.Lyhne discuss her experience at the British School of Athens. Lyhne will discuss how being surrounded by archaeologists and interaction with real objects and artefacts impacted her research into the image of The Lamb of God , commonly known as the Agnus Dei. This image of a sheep representing Christ and sacrifice has been in common usage since Roman times.
W.K.Lyhne is an artist, curator and researcher. She has wide ranging practice, mainly focused on painting and drawing but also including ceramics, sculpture and film. Lyhne has exhibited widely in venues such as Lungley Gallery, The Freud Museum and Mark Hix. She is currently undertaking a practiced-based PhD with supervisors from Chelsea College of Arts and Glasgow School of Art.
The British School at Athens (BSA) Arts Residency and Bursary is offered to a practice-based PhD students at UAL on an annual basis. The resident artist is supported by a bursary and the provision of a studio and accommodation in Athens for up to three months. The scheme furthers the BSA’s mission to support UK-based researchers within its broad arts, humanities, and social sciences remit and is delivered in partnership with research at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges of Arts.
