Social Sculpture

The KHOJ Social Sculpture workshop facilitated introspection on possible collaborations between awareness of one's body and one's spatial location by exploring the multi-faceted relationship that informs the body's various interactions with frames. The participants in the workshop used sculpture materials as working tools and were engaged in a rich of exchange of ideas that enabled interrogations of performativity.

About this programme

Social Sculpture revolved around three main axes: body awareness, spatial awareness and collaboration. The workshop played with the position of the body in, between, under, outside and around frames.

The workshop was developed by Katrien Oosterlinck and Jordi Ferreiro in the framework of the exhibition  Nepotists, Opportunists, Friends, Freaks and Strangers Intersecting in the Grey Zone, Z33 (Hasselt, Belgium) curated by Bolwer K. Jordi Ferreiro works within the space that divides and also connects art and education, through the use of collaborative actions within public spaces, which results in an artwork.
