John Hansard Gallery presents: In Conversation: Tanoa Sasraku and Asten Holmes-Elliott

Age suitable for: 16+

Date and Time (UK time):
17/02/2022 18:00-19:00

Join Tanoa Sasraku and Asten Holmes-Elliott as they discuss key influences on their research and practice, and how both have experienced a shift in how they make art, giving space for experimentation and activism. The conversation will be chaired by Winchester School of Art's Dr Valentina Cardo.

Their collective use of Super 8mm film as an analogue medium evokes feelings of nostalgia to set the scene and present their stories. This is a unique chance to hear about distinct approaches to making art and the overlapping interests and influences of two contemporary filmmakers.

Tanoa Sasraku's film, Whop, Cawbaby (2018) questions what it means to lay claim to rural spaces and is currently showing as part of Derek Jarman's Modern Nature, showing at John Hansard Gallery until 28 February 2022.

Asten Holmes Elliott's ARTICLE 16 (2021) celebrates the non-traditional family unit. The film is available to stream throughout February on John Hansard Gallery's website helping to mark LGBT+ History Month 2022. Please visit for more information.
