I use the frame to find what lies beyond it - at the limit of the image.

Anne Tallentire

Biographical details:

Anne Tallentire works across a wide range of media including film, installation, performance, photography, sound and video. Concerned with the politics of location her work has continuously addressed the shifting geographies, demographics and working practices of the displaced. Taking a cue from everyday activities she investigates the peripatetic potential of digital video in relation to how these activities are performed. In recent work, she has staged and recorded her own actions and those of others, actions that are both improvised and derived through the structure of given tasks. A significant aspect of Tallentire's practice since 1993 is the collaboration with John Seth. Through this ongoing collaboration they propose a politics of improvisation and action, a politics that is addressed through the relationship between the making of art, agency, contingency and event. Since 1997 she has worked with Seth as work-seth/tallentire. This has taken the form of a workshop or laboratory, a site within and from which collaborative and individual projects are realised.

Tallentire studied printmaking at The School of Visual Arts, New York in 1983 and Post graduate Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Art between 1986 - 1988. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and co-founder of the Double Agents project. Born in Co. Armagh, N.Ireland she has lived and worked in London since 1984. Tallentire was the sole representative for Ireland at the Venice Biennale in 1999.
