Event description

Description

This workshop looks at installation, immersive environments and techniques to activate objects and performance; and strategies from William Burroughs' concept of the 'Cut-up' and the 'Exquisite Corpse', to found materials and performative gesture.

Found objects will be pooled, chosen at random and distributed to each participant. The group will create and present temporal art installations with designated objects and if needed 'gallery' accessories (plinths, lights, mobiles, art materials, plastic sheeting/backdrops). An informal series of critiques and Q&As will be conducted.

Recommended for anyone interested in art, performance and play. Artists and performers wanting to test their ideas in a group context are encourage to attend.

Josee Vesely-Manning is an artist and curator who is interested in forms of material obsolescence and its reactivation through new imaginings, positioning and magic. Actant matter, effluvia and plants also inform this enquiry. Josee has presented exhibitions and projects for a wide range of organizations including The Australia Council, Arts Victoria, The City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund, Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces, NGV and numerous artist led spaces in Melbourne and beyond. She is currently completing a MFA at Sydney College of the Arts under the thesis title “Magic Nihilism”.
