Social Sculpture revolved around three main axes: body awareness, spatial awareness and collaboration. The workshop played with the position of the body in, between, under, outside and around frames.
The workshop was developed by Katrien Oosterlinck and Jordi Ferreiro in the framework of the exhibition “Nepotists, opportunists, friends, freaks and strangers intersecting in the grey zone”, Z33 (Hasselt, Belgium) curated by bolwer K. Jordi Ferreiro works in the line that divides art and education using collaborative actions with different publics to develop the piece of art. View his work on http://jordiferreiro.com/
Participants were engaged in physical work, changing roles, decision-making, exchange of ideas and in interrogating performativity. Analogue visual plastic techniques were introduced as working tools for creating these communal body configurations.
The KHOJ Social Sculpture workshop was guided by Katrien Oosterlinck, assisted by Marthe Van Dessel, translated by Sakshi Gupta.
