Gallery in Pieces
a workshop for school groups – grades 4–8
15.11.2022, 9 AM - 12.30 PM

Is the layout of rooms in a building random? Does the location of the toilet in the flat, school, gallery matter? What will be next to each other and what at a greater distance? Do neighbourhood and surroundings have an impact?

Referring to the work of sculptor Monika Sosnowska, we propose a workshop of creative deconstruction.

Ultimately, we will work in clay. It is a graceful material, very malleable and ideal for deformation. However, we will make prototypes of our sculptures from sheets of paper, with an image of the Poznań Arsenal building printed on them. We will do a 2D deconstruction, creating a new image of the gallery; everyone will be able to cut their sheet into pieces and sketch their building in this way. With this, the participants will prepare their vision, a prototype of their new dream gallery for artists. Then, everyone will make a clay sculpture from a piece of clay, based on their previous sketches, already reflecting the spatial character of this project.

Learning objectives:

- visualisation skills, converting a 2D image into a 3D one,

- breaking down the working process,

- developing fine motor skills.

The workshop will be accompanied by a talk about the work of the artist Monika Sosnowska and a short presentation of her best-known works.
