Representation Of The Body Through Sculpture with Jennie Bringaker
The theme of the workshop focused on representation of the body through sculpture.
The participants collaborated to create a suspended site specific figurative work, for the outdoor area of Kunsthall Stavanger. Jennie Bringaker started the workshop with a presentation about the outdoor sculptures of Niki de Saint Phalle, as well as the sculptures of Louise Bourgeois and Hans Bellmer,in addition to some of her own sculptural works. The emphasis was on how these artists relate to the human body and how, through their different representations of these human forms, the artists express feelings of distress, detachment, desire and other complex emotions based on personal experiences.
The workshop was designed for every participant to create their own element, which could unite in one large scale, suspended abstract form. The process allowed for everyone to express themselves separately meanwhile engaging in a joint result, an outdoor sculpture work, which was available for the public and passer bys for the duration of 2019
