Workshop »Voice and Textile in the Landscape« with Janneke van der Putten.
September 5, 2019, 6 to 10 pm
Janneke van der Putten’s practice involves different levels of collaboration that are presented in the form of listening experiences, performances, video, sound, as well as documentation in images, texts and textiles. Through interventions based on the physicality of her voice in relation to specific places, Janneke investigates various ways of interacting with the environment, integrating into different landscapes and acoustic architectures.
Voice and textile in the landscape questions the notions of time and presence in spaces through the use of voice, walking and working with textiles. Through contemplation and an intuitive, sensorial approach, we will explore our relationship with our body, the geographical and local context, as well as cosmological elements such as sunset. Reflecting in a collective dialogue, we will document the process and our actions in video, sound and drawings.
To join please reserve your participation through sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 30 August, mentioning your name, telephone number, and a short motivation why you like to participate. Open to max. 20 participants. No previous experience is needed. The workshop is part of van der Putten’s research during her fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude and is therefore free of charge.
