Friday 31 July, 6-8pm
Fluid Medium is a work by Susie Green, one of the Syllabus participants. An experimental life-drawing class with exercises in drawing and simple sculptural practices, it is led by Green, who takes on the role of model, performer and facilitator. Green will choreograph a collaborative, immersive environment through music and lighting, offering an alternative to the typically one-way experience of artists observing a silent model.
Fluid Medium is presented as part of Spike Island’s public programme and will be attended by members of the public as well as the Syllabus participants.
Saturday 1 August
This workshop is led by Pil and Galia Kollectiv, whose practice is collaborative and interdisciplinary, encompassing film, performance, sculpture, costumes, music and collage.
Their work addresses the legacy of modernism and the avant-garde and the relationship between art and politics. They are especially interested in the role of art and creativity in post-Fordist labour, and the day will focus on this area of concern with an introductory lecture on the idea followed by a discussion of Josephine the Songstress or The Mouse Folk by Franz Kafka.
