Stella Hall- Board Member
What expertise do you bring to the board ?
I have only just joined, so hope to complement the great people already on board. I have over forty years of working across the UK in various cultural contexts, and hope to bring to the table skills in supporting artists and creating new work which really resonates and engages with audiences.
What excites you about IOU – why are you a board member?
Tell us about a cultural experience, past or present that has inspired you the most.
I saw Katarzyna Kozyra’s re working of the Rite of Spring on a 7 screen video installation in Warsaw’s National Gallery of Art in 1999. I was astonished at the complete engagement of the elderly naked “dancers” whose movements were stop-framed to create the illusion of dance. It has been interpreted in various ways, but I found it an extremely empowering work, maybe even more so now that I approach the age of some of the participants!
