Things that Talk

Christian Andersson

In this workshop we will investigate what possible stories lie hidden in an object, and over the course of the workshop we will develop artistic strategies to unveil these. Each member of the class is asked to bring a personal ‘object’ to use as a starting point for this exploration. This ‘object’ can be a book, a record, a text, a tool, a handful of dust, in fact anything is possible here. The only important thing is that the matter brought shall be of personal interest, emotionally and/or intellectually, for the student. Through individual tutoring we will do an exercise of how to effectively make use of references, facts, fiction and artistic expressions, in order to augment the specific story within this object into a work of art. In the end of the course we will discuss the process together within the group, addressing challenges met, choices made, and the final outcome.
