"Dissecting the Female Body through Art Practice”
Pineapple Lab, Poblacion, Makati City, Philippines
One-day series of workshops exploring femininity and physicality through a variety of art forms and practices.
Led by JOYEN, Rhine Bernardino, and Ea Torrado, these artists look to encourage engagement with unique art forms and stimulate an interest in the power of the female body. Through genres as diverse as dance, movement, and even rope bondage, these workshops will help participants discover and articulate their understanding of the feminine facets of their bodies.
In addition to the workshop proper, attendees are invited to join in conversations with the artists about the workshop, the art practices featured, and their curiosities about the ways we relate to the female body.
The Rural Assembly: Contemporary Art Spaces of Connection,
Whitechapel Gallery, 2019, London, UK
The Rural Assembly draws on a series of public programmes and research that developed throughout 2018. It looks at contemporary artists and creative practitioners who are challenging the assumptions made about rural life and culture, providing a new vision of the countryside grounded in everyday experience and a critique of the rural-urban binary. Connecting the local to the global, this conference invites an international and transdisciplinary conversation on art and the rural, with a focus on profiling projects from across the world.
The Rural Assembly also forms part of the East Contemporary Visual Arts Network’s project New Geographies, chaired and coordinated by Wysing Arts Centre and supported by an Ambition for Excellence grant from Arts Council England. The programme has also been supported by the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from the Art Fund, and made possible through the contributions of partners: University of Aberystwyth, Istanbul Biennial, Manchester Metropolitan University and Wysing Arts Centre. Further support has been provided by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London, and SAHA for Fulya Erdemci’s and Pelin Tan’s participation.
