An exploration of sculpture’s relationship to landscape and the body as viewed through the lens of the artist-traveler.
Our workshop will examine the notion of travel through such examples as Baudelaire’s flâneur, the Situationists’ theory of Psychogeography, and artists ranging from Robert Smithson and Richard Long, to Francis Alys and Olaf Breuning. We will conduct a series of exercises, expeditions, and missions including the creation of livable shelter-sculptures to inhabit on a weekend camping trip in the Scottish Highlands. Bedouin tents, arctic research stations, camper vans, Hoovervilles, hunting blinds, and interplanetary spacecraft serve as our inspirational points of departure...
