Mind your Head is a group exhibition in Cambridge Unit 7 Grafton Centre on 6th June 2014 from 6-11pm.  There will be film installations, performance, music and art. I’m screening my new film Cambridge 20/5/14, and have been extremely lucky to work with performance artist Pea Ramshaw on making this site specific film and to use the incredible abstracted Cambridge soundtrack by the very talented Nick May. Don’t miss seeing Neuf, the experimental film collective in action!

Interview with Trisha McCrae

Hello Trisha and welcome to Stigmart: to start this interview I would ask you what in your opinion defines a work of art.


The term ‘art’ certainly has a big remit but it’s the underlying aspects that make good art stand out, whether it is a piece of music, a film, a poem, a performance or a painting. For me, a work of art has to initially grab me with some sort of aesthetic emotion, a visceral reaction that says stay a bit longer and in these moments of waiting my imagination and understanding go off into free play. I‘m allowed into the piece. I like to think this happens when the intensity of the artist’s passion comes through and I appreciate work that is fresh, memorable and of its time.


I also suggest a work of art has to have a coherency, an over all sense of what it’s “about”, an inner logic in the Focillon sense, even if it is an abstract form, it must have underlying signs that link to a thematic content or harmony. Lastly I think a work of art has to have a reason to be, it has to have meaning.  I appreciate art as craft and art for arts sake, but for me great art has underlying meaning  read more
