I loved every minute connecting with Los Angeles based artist Pia Pack! From talking about art school, dealing with post-grad school anxiety, moving internationally, to balancing work and family. Pia was such a treat to talk to! We dive into creating community through podcasting and how she is doing all of this with a new baby along for the ride! Pia sees her work as that of a cartographer of social situations. Focusing on the way people connect and interact, translating movements and mapping sounds into her artwork. At the center of her practice is the desire to bring people together.
Creating art can at times be a solitary experience, by comparison, music is often considered a great unifier. What Artists Listen To is creating an archive of the soundtracks and stories of artists' lives. This combines the music the artists listen to with the story of their lives. Listened to as a whole the recordings serve to create a sense of connection between these individual artists working in their studios.
Pia has a solo show ‘TABLE TALK’ at Alex Eagle Studio opening on Wednesday 4th December! If you are in London, check it out! https://www.alexeagle.co.uk/pia-pack-the-art-of-table-talk/
