Participants will be invited to spend time with a collection of sources (images, texts and artworks), pulled together by Meera to explore each title. The workshop themes have been developed in response to a new film produced by artist Camara Taylor, which will be exhibited throughout May – June 2021 in The NewBridge : Gateshead gallery space.
The workshops will be discussion based and the participants will be invited to discuss their own experiences of Rest, Pining and Loneliness. The group will identify together where their experiences overlap or differ. Meera will guide the workshops drawing upon their artistic practice which uses sound, breathing and talking. Meera and the participants will collect sounds from the online sessions and afterwards, will have the opportunity to play the sounds together within the exhibition space.
What does Rest sound like to you?
If Pining was a texture, what would it be?
If Loneliness made sound, what would we hear?
Prior to the workshops each participant will receive a work pamphlet and care package to help support them through each session.
