Recently within may of this year, Editor Writer and Poetic Artist Phillip Davenport, visited the University Of Chester at Kingsway Campus to offer the third year fine art students with a lecture about his work and the future of postgraduate and artistic practice.
Beginning the lecture Davenport introduces his work by laying out several items, books, images , and leaflets on a table directly in front of the lecture theatre desk, Initiating a proposal for all students to approach the font desk and help themselves to look at his work.
I was very impressed by Davenport’s Lecture, his use of “Breaking the Ice” , with his introduction approach was something I admired, the reason being is that it is more complementary to ‘communication’ to successfully get people involved and talking instead of ‘stereotypically’ starting at a screen display for several hours, is memorable.
So the first opening of this lecture was great and I found myself very inspired and interested in his work, the next piece and most inspiring is Davenport’s work of the Manchester Homeless “Invisible people”.
