Seeing Art with the Whole Body - A New Workshop Series by Claire Loussouarn. Engaging the sensory machine in Thick, Stretchy, Sticky Space…

About

'Seeing art with the whole body', we will explore how to listen and receive an artist's artwork, and world with the three-dimensionality of our sensory bodies.

For our first workshop in this series at IMT Gallery we will have the pleasure to dialogue with Fran Hayes' artwork. Her exhibition Thick, Stretchy, Sticky Space features digital paintings and video works that delve into speculative landscapes, inspired by damaged ecologies, science-fiction, and the uncanny; all viewed through a profoundly human lens.

🪩 For a glimpse of what to expect, watch Claire's Moving Meditation via our link in bio.

Claire Loussouarn is a movement artist and somatic wizard. She'll bring some of her magic to make you look at artwork from a fresh and new perspective. You will be invited to follow simple movement scores to attune to your senses, change your perspective through space and challenge our normal default position of focused forward vision. You will learn to trust your body and its subtle felt sense in response to artwork, letting go of preconceptions about how you should conduct yourself in an art gallery.

🎟️ ‘Seeing Art with the Whole Body’ will take place on Tuesday 18 June at 7pm. Get your tickets via our link in bio. Tower Hamlets residents attend for FREE!

See you there!
