Dates: 23 October – 10 November 2023
Location: Studio 12, Backwater Artists Group, Wandesford Quay
Project Showcase: 9 November
Framed as a German Expressionist thriller “A Scene Unravelled” is a closed-door research project that explores experimental drawing techniques through research, interactions and performative experimentations. Tying together Chaos theory and Threshold Fear Theory we aim to create a performative workshop that questions our fundamental knowledge of traditional modes of art production and presentation. By creating a seemingly stable yet unpredictable environment we will use this project as an opportunity to investigate how small changes in a system can result in larger differences in experience and outcome.
