Evening salons with Izzy Parker
Tuesday 21 February 2017, 7–9pm
Tuesday 7 March 2017, 7–9pm

Join artist Izzy Parker for an evening of discussions and making as she leads two salons exploring themes interlaced within her current exhibition at Milton Keynes Arts Centre, Mark Making. 

Mark Making artist Izzy Parker leads a tour of her latest body of work at Milton Keynes Arts Centre, giving an
introduction to the exhibition and project; showcasing the identities of Milton Keynes young people, her
father's and her own identity in one setting; representing a generation of identities in one exhibition. This
immersive environment aims to engulf visitors on a journey through the Mark Making project. Parker’s own exploration of identity has heightened since the recent passing of her father in December 2015.

Interested by how signet rings were destroyed after the wearer died, somewhat eradicating the identity of the
individual, Parker investigates how we often try to hold onto the identity of a person after their death. She
considers our perception of memories and how they can change over the course of time.

The Artist tour will be followed by a screening of filmmaker Naveed Nasir’s documentary of Mark Making,
offering insight into Parker’s working processes, alongside insider views from young people at Stephenson Academy, who have designed and made their own signet rings over six weeks of workshops lead by Parker.
