Saturday Talks

On selected Saturdays the Serpentine Gallery hosts free talks that address questions related to the Serpentine Gallery's programmes. This summer, Saturday Talks presentations explore the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013, designed by Sou Fujimoto, and the exhibition, STURTEVANT LEAPS JUMPS AND BUMPS, within the context of the 'interface', as well as that of the speakers' multi-disciplinary practices. 
The term 'interface' describes the place and ways in which we encounter an object and make use of it. In the field of computer science, an interface marks the point of interaction between the user and the device. In describing the concept of the 2013 Pavilion, architect Sou Fujimoto stated: 'the Pavilion [is] to be used as a flexible, multi-purpose social space... Visitors are encouraged to construct their own experience of the building and the events that occur within it'. This emphasis on the visitor's active shaping of their own experience finds an echo in Sturtevant's repetition works which, rather than being 'copies', probe beyond the surface to interrogate the relationship between repetition and difference.
