This new cycle of art education activities, developed in collaboration with Sofia Kouloukouri, places artists and their approaches at its heart.
Make your own talisman with Alexandra Nuroc
Wednesday 9 December from 3.30-5.00
Suppose we can make a talisman to summon protection for ourselves, but can we also attempt to protect the world. The medieval practice of sigil making is here revisited by artist Alexandra Nurock. Participants will discover symbols and their meanings, which they can mix and associate to create their very own talisman!
Sculpture melted away, what do you see? with Rebecca Sauvin
Wednesday 16 December from 3.30-5.00
This drawing workshop takes as its starting point mini sculptures in melted wax which we will fabricate with artist Rebecca Sauvin. To melt what was solid, throw it in the water and then examine it, well…that’s ceromancy! What kind of forms emerge, are they recognizable? Using both identifiable symbols and free interpretation we invite you to draw the unique form that chance has solidified!
Ecstatic ‘drawriting’ with Anne-Lise Tacheron
Sunday 10 January from 3.30-5.00
Sunday 24 January from 3.30-5.00
Drawing workshop on large scale paper where we will practice automatic writing (and drawing) without lifting our hands from the surface, in the manner of Chiara Fumai! With the help of performance artist Anne-Lise Tacheron the paper becomes the scene on which our bodies operate a sort of choreography to profit from the entire surface! What forms and texts come up from this choreography remains to be seen!
