Resting bodies and surfaces
This workshop gives insight into the artistic practice of Anne Glassner. In the context of her own ongoing site-specific artistic research into ‘sleep’, which Glassner has presented in performative and photographic settings, this workshop will focus on lying down and ‘touching ground’. We will try out different performance and drawing techniques, explore forms of brief sleep (powernap), reclining on and experiencing different surfaces and objects – like a mattress. Discursive and conceptual vectors will emerge from the interplay of contradictory elements such as flexibility and inelasticity, retreat and visibility, distance and closeness.
You should bring (optional): training mat, comfortable clothes, small cushions, pencils, paper.
is a visual artist and performer. Sleep has been a major research interest in her artistic practice for some time now. She has presented several ‘sleep performances’ in which she allows an audience to watch her sleep in unusual places. Art and life, fiction and reality clash in these performances, making new combinations possible. Self-awareness and external perception, intimacy and publicness are key questions in Anne Glassner’s approach.
