The Moving Treads workshop by Paopla Anziché
This year we are welcoming Italian artist, Paola Anziché within the AIR Bayrampaşa Residency Program. The artist, in addition to the research and exhibition process, will carry out a Collective Textile Workshop with the leftover fabrics collected from the factories in the region. "The Moving Threads" Workshop will take place on the 18th of March, next week Saturday at 14:00 in PASAJ @barin_han BarınHan. Please DM @pasajist Instagram account for participation.
The workshop will work through manual dexterity, the spirit of cooperation, exploration, and discovery. It provides a knowledge base of weaving without a loom. Through the gradual working process, the fabric is associated with finger gestures and the body. It is a simple and inclusive practice, requiring no special skills. It is an invitation to rethink and reinvent the initial baggage of techniques to get involved in the physical and collective dimensions of the work. It provides stimuli that lie between the fields of study of gesture performance, design, architecture, and fashion.
