THE STRING SERIES WORKSHOP

May 20, 2017
2:00 pm
Museum of Performance + Design

On May 20, artist Latifa Medjdoub will work with the public in a workshop setting at MP+D to conceive elaborate and intricate fiber sculptures integrating materials gleaned from the waste stream. Participants will first use a set of handcrafted loomed strings and engage in a social practice to reflect on the quality of energy that links everything together and experiment with movements and perspectives in time and space. Participants will then work with a set of recycled items ranging from fiber, paper, plastic or metal to form an open ended rope. They will study systems of formal imbrication, intertwined sequences, modulating rhythmic organizations of selected items while demonstrating a correlation between structure and sustainability. Combining mundane objects with sophisticated textile art techniques, the workshop will stimulate creative social interactions while exploring notions of space, time, and movement.  In our age of social media networking, this innovative artistic approach pushes mental and physical boundaries, questioning our presence and responsibility to each other, challenging individual and shared perception and communication, and allowing an immersive space of self as well as a transformative collective experience to foster the idea that art makes us look at the world in fresh, new, and restorative ways.
