Workshop 2: Imagining The Past Future, Sunday, 8 Oct, 2-4pm
This project swings between drawing and building. The overarching theme of artist-led network POST is a dialogue between art and place, and the participating artists have come together to investigate these ideas.
More than half a century has passed from the everyday use of blueprints in architecture. Today we can inspect their imagery not from a functional perspective, but from an aesthetic one. The starting point for this project is the translation between architectural drawings and art, then back again, from art to construction. Slippages through translation and reinterpretation are intentionally incorporated into the process. A sculpture on a scale of 1:1 will be constructed in the space, around which images, film and architectural models relating to the construction of the sculpture will feature.
POST will run two drawing workshops: one will include architectural readings of the installation, concentrating on voids, volumes and diagrammatic aspects of the structure; the other focuses on reimagining, repurposing, and collective storytelling.
