This November choreographer Siobhan Davies invites a number of eminent artists to her RIBA award-winning studios, to talk with other artists about how they make their work.
Lavinia Greenlaw is an award winning novelist and poet. She also writes dramas and documentaries for radio, and is currently Professor of Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia.
Cornelia Parker was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1997 is known for her installations and interventions, including Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View 1991, later shown at Tate Modern, where she suspended the fragments of a garden shed, blown up for her by the British Army.
These talks are a development from a number of conversations Siobhan Davies had in 2008 with eight artists from outside the world of dance, taking the word 'choreography' as the trigger.
For Conversations on Making, four of these artists were then asked by Siobhan to choose someone - again from outside their realm of work - to talk about what it is that fires up and sustains the making of their own work.
