WORKSHOP

Thursday, 24 February, 10am-4pm (1 hour off for lunch)
£25

Talk Description

Jake will speak about the importance of drawing within his art practice and the way it relates to all his different ways of working. He will speak about how drawing can be used as a tool for thinking, and about the ways drawing can be used as a starting point to make video, dance and sound works.

Workshop Description

Jake will lead a workshop where participants will work collaboratively to re-work existing drawings into a graphic score for movement.

Before the workshop begins participants are asked to send scans/photos of previous drawings they have made, these will then be sampled and transformed using various drawing techniques to create a new collaborative drawing. Participants will then transform their drawings into a video work which has the potential to be turned into a dance performance.
