Off-beat, humours and experimental workshops, which look at the everyday as sculpture.
We will search for beauty of discarded objects, encourage unusual behaviours of things and include our own bodies as sculptural propositions.
Suitable for adults and older children, those interested in art and those who forgot how to make. Willingness to experiment and play welcome and encouraged.
Tabletop Sculptures - Thursday 14 May 6-7:30 pm
A workshop exploring how to create sculptures from everyday materials at home when you cannot leave home.
We will look at sculptures that are not monumental or made of precious materials, but rather made with from banal, from discarded, demoted, broken and fragmented, from found in the drawers or picked up from the floor. Using emotional, musical, formal or humours prompts and guidelines we will try things out, welcoming mistakes and creating new meanings. Afterwards we will consider how to display and photograph these ephemeral works, using home lights, mobile phones and paper as an infinity backdrop.
Performed Sculptures - Thursday 21 May 6-7:30 pm
The workshop inviting appreciation of our physical selves at the time we remain spatially distanced.
Performed Sculptures will not use conventional materials - they will need our participation to become active. We will interact playfully and obliquely with everyday objects at home - a chair, a spatula or fruit – while becoming temporal sculptures ourselves. Prompts and guidelines will be offered to warm up before we consider more complex arrangements or even exchange instructions with each other. We will look at how to best capture these performances with mobile phones, DYI backgrounds or enlisting others as photographers.
