Studio Lunches was an autonomous podcast project by Chris MacInnes, supported by CCA. Its goal was to open up artists’ practices within Glasgow through conversation, exploring the diverse, obscure and intriguing interests that reside at the heart of this. This time around I caught up with Stephanie Hier over Skype, which turned out to be a pretty appropriate format for our conversation. Stephanie had a recent exhibition at David Dale Gallery, which we take as our starting point in discussing her work and interests in general. Beginning with an exploration of the phrase, “the flatness of possibility”, we talk about image production and time within the online media-sphere. This phrase captures how when diverse images from across histories and context become ungrounded in online contexts, resulting in a breakdown of narrative; a temporal and conceptual “flatness”. Through this episode she helps me to unpack the merits of painting as a slow tool in a high-speed culture. And in doing so offers us a means for negotiating our contemporary world of contextual slippage, entangled timelines and impulsively generated imagery.
