Mall Nukke workshop "Photorealistic Charcoal Drawing"

The movement name Photorealism was coined in reference to those artists whose work depend heavily on photographs. They often projected them onto canvas which allowed images to be replicated with precision and accuracy.  Students will gain knowledge from these drawing techniques, some interesting practical methods, information of the larger list of charcoal drawing tools, materials, paper etc., information of the drawing process step-by-step.

Ulvi Haagensen performance "Sweeping"

The Sweeping Game, an art performance by Ulvi Haagensen that explores the embodied experience of sweeping.

Swish–swish–swish, the sound of my broom as I sweep with strong strokes passing from left to right and back again. The slightly wobbly handle is smooth and feels good in my hands. The dust flies left and right, and when the wind blows my feet and legs pass through a cloud of dirty dust. I watch the rising fold of sandy earth as it moves ahead of my broom. I look back to see the cleared path that I have swept and feel satisfied. 

Cleaning is often seen as a mundane chore – something unpleasant we tolerate or avoid, come to terms with or find someone else to do for us. Cleaning may be mundane, but it is an experience we all share, even if all we do is wipe our feet or wash our hands. So, is cleaning important? If so, how? Why do we clean? Does cleaning have to have a purpose? Do we have to do it well? Can we do it just because we want to? These are some of the questions that run through Ulvi’s mind as sweeps. They are also questions at the heart of her art practice and research into the possible  connections between art and everyday life.

Details

Ulvi will be performing The Sweeping Game. She invites the audience to join in and sweep with her (starting from Red gallery and going out around the block. Route undetermined).

When

  • Sun, 18th March 2018
  • 12.00pm

What to bring
Bring your choice of broom, clothing according to the weather conditions and eagerness to sweep!
