Dirt & Grime and the Second Body (part of Doing Together 2023)
Dirt & Grime and the Second Body
Workshop with Claire Loder and Charlie Tweed as part of doing together 2023
Tuesday 4 April 2023
doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.
Using wild clay, wild plants and words to explore the earth bound stories beneath the city.
We'll be making with clay, gathering planty specimens and excavating research & language to tell stories of our human connections to the tarmac, to the soil and to our vegetal kin.
