‘DOING THINGS WITHOUT AN AIM’
A two-day workshop led members of the Yard House Collective.
Saturday 14th September 10am - 5pm
Sunday 15th September 12pm - 8pm
In and around Hackney Wick. In available spaces; Arbeit Gallery, Performance Space, The White Building, yards, canal, and so on.
Led by Louise Ashcroft, Noga Inbar, Oliver Roy, and Jack Tan in collaboration with various peers from the Yard House Collective.
"IT'S NOT A HOUSE - IT'S AN ATTITUDE OF TOGETHERNESS".
SHARING LUNCH, TIME, SPACE AND THOUGHTS ON SOLIDARITY, BOUNDARIES, DOMESTICITY, EXCHANGE, CARING, POLITICS AND WAYS OF MAKING AND EXISTING WITHIN ART. WE SET OUT TO LIVE IN THE SPACES BETWEEN US.
We are a group of artists who met at the Royal College of Art Sculpture Department in 2012 and have been working together and parallel to one another this year building a house in the college yard which was both a living sculpture and a context for individual and collaborative works. We occupied the house for several weeks during the final show and activated it through a programme of events and lunches. For more info see: http://sculptureyard.blogspot.co.uk/
What is our 2-day workshop?
‘Doing Things Without an Aim’
Noga, Jack, Louise and others from the extended group will each lead short exercises on this theme, which they will develop collaboratively.
Exercise 1. In the studio. Not drawing. Noga will investigate drawing without an aim (when is a drawing neither a plan for something else nor a finished thing in itself? Drawing as drifting).
Exercise 2. Jack will facilitate a time of cooperative food planning and preparation; with no menu, recipe or desired outcome. Cooking as a cumulative decision-making.
For artists and non-artists. If you want to be part of ‘Doing things without an aim’, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and C’C Sadie on email@example.com and Gerald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Write a paragraph on why you are interested/who you are/any images or web links.
Deadline: Friday 6th September 2013.
