Imagining a New Universe: Drawing workshop
With artist Sophie Behal
This workshop for all ages will explore TBG+S's current exhibition Abel and Élio by Lola Gonzàlez. Through group exercises and collaborative drawing we will create new universes, with the participants as inhabitants. Working together we will map out this imaginary universe within the gallery space with our bodies, using movement to make connections between people, then illustrating this imaginary new world using colouring pencils and paper to answer questions like: What does the future hold? Will we live in cities? What language will we speak? Will we have to use different senses?
Sophie Behal is a visual artist working mainly in sculptural installation, which can include audio, text, photographic and performative elements. Her work is characterised by an attention to the inherent qualities of materials and their relationship to time. It strives to sit in a space between thinking, language and making. Sophie recently completed an MA in Art + Research Collaboration through IADT, and has recently undertaken residencies in the Mustarinda, Northern Finland and the Impilinna residency in the Finnish archipelago.
