Adventure to Africa: El Anatsui
Monday 23rd February - Friday 27th March
Inspired by El Anatsui’s hand made cloth like golden sculptures, workshops will focus on science and the environment. We will explore the kinetic and modular nature of Anatsui’s work through recycled materials; which also comments on the ideas of consumption and Nigerian and Ghanaian landscapes that Anatsui’s works often represent.
Using a variety of techniques, including embossing, gold leafing and painting we will create individual and collective multi- sensory metallic works and installations.
