I’m Not Dead Yet
Malca Schotten exhibited her work at Words And Women’s drawing exhibition in The Forum, Norwich, in March this year, and we’re pleased to say that this opportunity has enabled her to strike up a great relationship with The Forum, The Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library, and BBC Voices. All are supporting her with her on-going project - I’m Not Dead Yet – where she invites older people to sit for her and creates larger than life portraits of them.
Now, with funding from Arts Council England and others, Malca will create up to a dozen fresh portraits of older people from Norwich. A group of student film-makers from BBC Voices will film the process and record the conversations between Malca and her sitters. This work will be exhibited in October this year, and we hope to keep you up-to-date with her progress over coming months.
