Treacy’s immersive practice incorporates photography, sculpture, collecting and anthropology, often gathering abandoned and discovered objects and making them the subject of his work through transformative processes such as deconstruction, reconstruction and finally photography.
Taking the Thames as his subject, spend Day 1 learning about Treacy's conceptual approach to his work, before leaving the studio to work off-site on the banks of the Thames to collect materials and make photographic work. On Day 2 return to the studio to stage and photograph the objects in various ways and combinations in order to explore their meaning and aesthetic value and how this might change from the river to the studio.
Participants are required to bring a digital camera so that work can be presented and shared with each other. All other materials are provided.
