Join us for a conversation between artist Trevor Novak and curator matt lambert as they speak about Novak's project Exploratory Touch, which brightens the opening pages of our current issue, C156 Craft. With ceramic and digital figures Novak takes classical nude subjects and places them in surrealist, cheerfully abject poses and predicaments.

As lambert writes in their accompanying text, "This work does not attempt to supersede and claim dominance, but challenges bodily ideals to shatter them. A new map is not inscribed; instead, an invitation to wander and form our own desire lines is proposed. There is a potential of queerness here, something palpable if one is looking for it."

Trevor Novak is a visual artist whose practice is focused on sculptural and digital creations that reflect the real and imagined worlds he lives in. Trevor graduated from Sheridan College and NSCAD, and lives in Halifax. His work can be found in commercial galleries and private collections across Canada.

matt lambert is a non-binary, trans, multidisciplinary collaborator and co-conspirator working toward equity, inclusion, and reparation. Their practice is based in polydisciplinamory, entangling making, writing, curating, collaborating, and performing. lambert is currently a PhD Researcher at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden, in Artistic Practice in Visual, Applied, and Spatial Arts. Their research focuses on mapping collaborative movements with craft through a developed methodology of cruising. They have published, curated, exhibited, and been collected internationally.
