Jedel Foundation Visiting Artists: Clare Qualmann and Claire Hind
April 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ways to Wander and Ways to Wander the Gallery are two books, conceived and edited by Qualmann and Hind, that invite the reader to interpret and embody a Wander Score. Inspired by contemporary walking arts practice and performance, the books contain instructions for making or taking a walk. Wander Scores encourage experimentation, movement, creation, participation and spontaneity and interpretation.
In this workshop we will explore the concept of the Wander Score to explore the environment of KCAI, as co-creating experiences. We will improvise performances, write poetic texts, score new walks and reflect upon the wandering as a phenomenological experience. We will work together with a series of experimental and experiential activities followed by reflection and adaptions – translating our actions into concepts for a page. We will begin by introducing our journeys into walking art practice, tracing our trajectories through live art, conceptual art, theatre making, creative writing and social practice. We will actively explore the connections that inspire our work; walking and listening; walking and composition; walking and instructions; walking and mark making; walking and environment; walking and visibility. We will work on documentation and recording, putting our walks into words to be shared with others as new Wander Scores.
