What You see is not what You look at

Wednesday, 8 March, 10am-4pm (1 hour lunch break)
Location: Studio, 26 Exmouth Market, EC1 4QE 

Markus Vater’s workshop will be experimental. He wants to investigate drawing, perception and thinking through a number of actions and exercises. For example a performance on perception and then trying to draw how something feels and not necessarily how something looks.

There will be exercises on nonsense, and exercises on the relationship of image and text. His ambition is to create something poetic and real. “Something funny. Something serious.” He explains that “Our world is locked in firm functional symbolic structures, that he would like to wobble during the workshop, to unlock the richness that lures in everything. Within drawing anything, be it a road, a bug, a conductor, a cloud, a sofa can unfold its potentiality and its reality. A line can be so much, like a rip that goes right through the world. A bit of nothingness, that is something.”

Materials are included.
