Exploring the theme of experience in Art with a focus in interactive installations.
Beyond the Body, Imme van der Haak. 2012
Imme van der Haak - Beyond the Body (2012)
“My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different bodies, ages, generations and identities.
In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life.”
Hey everyone! Just a reminder that this upcoming Saturday is Slow Art Day!! This annual event celebrates art through focusing on viewing art slowly in order to fully experience and appreciate the work.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Sign up at a local museum or art gallery.There are 260 venues and counting (all around the world)!
Step 2: Attend and Look at 5 pieces of work SLOWLY! Show up on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at your venue, pay the admission fee (id there is one) and then look slowly- 5-10 minutes- at each piece of pre-assigned art.
Step 3: Have Lunch to discuss your experience. Meet up with your volunteer host and the other participants at a pre-assigned lunch spot.
So if you’re interested in being apart of this experience, check out the link to the official site I’ve posted below!!
