On our third ICE Immersion workshop, participants created a group of characters to express ideas regarding collectivity.
Our third ICE Immersion series was conducted by writer and professor Eva-Lynn Jagoe and Public Studio artists and founders: filmmaker Elle Flanders and architect Tamira Sawatzky.
“Art and Collectivity" was a multidisciplinary workshop that seeks to engage in artistic praxis around questions of social justice, environment, and political ideologies. Visual artists, activists, writers, city dwellers, and social media users are all invited to participate in this 3-day workshop in which we will share our ideas and practices of living in this moment and this landscape.
How can we rethink our own capacities, not as individuals, but as potential members of a collectivity, to create, contribute, and collaborate with each other? Participants will draw from their particular areas of expertise or interest to contribute to the group, but will also be pushed to think beyond their own disciplinary boundaries. This workshop is not about individual self-expression, but about solidarity, about collective power and collective artistic expression.
Mexican artist, Gustavo Artigas conducted a three day immersion experience, focused on the suppression of elemental works of art to rediscover expression possibilities, as well as a way to challenge contemporary art mechanisms. Artigas’ work has examined complex social relationships by presenting situations, often rooted in disaster, which are structured as interventions, scenarios, interactive situations and games. His works have been shown in international forums such as the Venice Art Biennale, Havana Biennale and Liverpool Biennale.
