Artist Talk: Megan Rooney & Hans Ulrich Obrist

28 September 2021
London Ely House

Watch Megan Rooney and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries, in conversation about the artist's practice and her current exhibition at the gallery BONES ROOTS FRUITS.

I imagine myself in flight when I am painting, hovering above the surface and searching for places to land, touching down and lifting off. I do this again and again until the surface starts to collect information… The painting becomes like a capsule, holding the weight of time. —Megan Rooney

Megan Rooney’s fascinating ability to tell stories and create a narrative is felt through the various media of her multidisciplinary approach. Always in flux, recurring characters speak to a narrative that is never fixed, the artist addresses urgent subjects of our time and presents each iteration of her work as part of her Gesamtkunstwerk. —Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries
