WORKSHOPS FOR FAMILIES. MOVEMENT

VIDEO AND MOVEMENT. PIPILOTTI RIST

Saturday, 19 May: for families with children ages 4-6 years

Sunday, 20 May: for families with children ages 7-9 years

Registration: 7-18 May

Pipilotti Rist owes her artistic name to the children’s character, Pippi Langstrumpf, with whom she shares a spirit that is free, critical and absurd.

The artist uses familiar images as a tool to draw attention to the stereotypes and preconceived ideas that we see on television and in advertising. She uses the videoclip format with sharp images saturated in bright colours, but with a critical discourse. She projects her montages on household objects like armchairs, curtains, kitchen furniture, on walls or floors, enveloping the spaces with moving pictures. During these sessions we will create new spatial environments seeking out movement through body expression and the use of video.
