3rd Year Waves & Knots
Stellenbosch University Visual Arts Dept.
This course looked to the 2015 Istanbul Biennale as a starting point for a two-week focused studio practice.
Building off of each students existing skill set and body of work, students worked independently to create a multi media and interdisciplinary piece that stemmed from the notion of “waves and knots”.
In the first week each student created a series of 6 “sketches”(drawings/short videos/photos/prints or sculptures) that contemplated the notion of “matter “ , storytelling and geography.
In the second week each student expanded on one or two of these sketches to create a final installation piece for critique.
Readings: Groys “Time Waves” and Griselda Pollock “The Cure for Anything is Salt water – Sweat, Tears or the Sea ”
