Body Drawings Back In Touch

Duration of the workshop: 3 hours

This workshop is an attempt to break with individualist contemporary  human thought. It aims to broaden the comprehension that objects, plants, or even the wind could be an entity with a body as lively as ours and is significant to see in our daily experiences. Getting in touch is something we associate as an action between humans. However, we are living in an environmental crisis and have lost connection to our environment. Since Ecology is a hot topic in contemporary art, this workshop fittingly attempts to confront and culturally shift thoughts about how humans relate to and understand their environments and the bodies within them. The participants should be open to thinking beyond their own body and sensitively get in touch with other bodies in their surroundings.

Materials requested for participants:

  • Blank pages or a sketchbook.
  • Drawing utensils (pens, markers, crayons, charcoal, etc.)
  • A microphone and webcam 
  • Access to Zoom/internet.

Note: This workshop will be held in English.

Limitation of 25 participants
