Can the artist of one medium broaden the enquiry of the other? How can we unpeel the early stages of collaboration?

Carnac and Diallo were invited to explore these questions as they first begun working together in 2012. This led to an extended research project where the artists have considered process and making. This workshop is an invitation to participants to join them in their ongoing enquiry, drawing on ideas and processes developed in the making of their new work Edge and Shore.

Working together, in groups and individually, participants will have the opportunity to explore some of the material Carnac and Diallo use when working together – movement and paper amongst others. The workshop will take place both in the Ladies Baths and main gallery space at Dovecot, where Edge and Shore will be shown.

Working in the gallery space for a period of time will enable those taking part to make tangible connections with the work displayed and to explore questions that have underpinned much of the artist’s research about the role of the onlooker, the changes in our doing that occur when we are being watched, the edges or parameters of performance and making and the ways in which an audience apprehends a moment of live making.

This workshop is aimed at artists from any medium interested in exploring materiality and making and to those interested in areas of research concerned with movement and making.
