Suzy Round’s artist’s practice is (usually) as half of the collaboration Barbaresi & Round. Their collective work is about places and buildings and incorporates painting, wall drawing, constructions, artist’s books, and participatory practice.
Round has just completed a practice based PhD at UCA Canterbury. Her research approaches Architecture as a Fine Artist, looking at the lives of buildings after the architect has walked away, linking physical interventions and adaptions in buildings to ideas around social space. She uses the title, ‘satellite dishes are wonderful!’ – a quote from the German Architect Johannes Uhl when reflecting on his 70’s development Neue Kreuzberger Zentrum in the present.
