Program Date - 12 Jan 2016
Books aren't just about words, their object-hood is something every passionate reader has experienced, relished and longed for. Something special about the books is that you can flip backward to your favourite part and also the smell of the paper. As children all of us use to have our books decorated by doodling all over them and making our own special notes. This workshop will look at this transformational process through an artistic lens and engage the participants in the creative exercise of making an artist’s book.
The workshop will be a fun exercise in exploring materials - photocopied and digital images, threads, tea bags, natural and found objects, multilingual text, paints, pastels and pens – and a conceptual enquiry into the implications of a book being transformed into an intimate art object.
Date: 11th December and 12th December
