Event description

Description

Artists have long employed materiality and process as a way of evidencing the absence and presence of the body, from Robert Morris, to Wolfgang Laib and Karla Black. In this workshop conversations about the body, materiality and duration unfold while participants explore felting techniques to create three-dimensional forms.

Textile making methods often involve slow processes, repetition and the hand-made, and the objects created carry a trace of the maker. These ‘slow’ objects become the basis for the second part of the workshop, where participants devise and carry out performative actions to activate their felted objects.

Boni Cairncross is an interdisciplinary artist and PhD candidate in Creative Practice at UNSW. Her practice explores the influences that shape and direct experiences, with a particular focus on how these moments are mediated by often intangible, complex and overlapping elements. To date, her practice has engaged with performance, textiles, installation and real-time documentation methods. She has exhibited and performed nationally at venues such as Ideas Platform at Artspace, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Performance Space, Firstdraft, Bus Projects and PICA, among others. Boni will present a collaborative text-based performance at 2017 Underbelly Arts Festival.
