Air Lab – Stories from Above

air lab1Air Lab – Stories from Above

Monday 6th + Saturday 11th November

10am-4pm

A professional development course for emerging artists to gain valuable training from experienced practitioners to design creative projects with young people.

We are delighted to welcome guest artist Mariele Neudecker to the first day of training.

Artists will have the opportunity to work with Mariele, alongside Emma Posey, Air Lab Associate Producer and Rachel Dunlop, AAW Participation Manager to collaboratively explore and develop workshop ideas. In the second session artists will be supported to facilitate their workshops with young participants from Arts Alive Wales’ projects and gain critical feedback.

‘German-born, Mariele Neudecker (b1965) lives and works in Bristol. She is known internationally for her glass vitrines containing landscapes of forests, lakes or mountains together with simulated weather effects. These often evoke other pictures or artists. Also using sculpture, film and photography, Neudecker creates a playful frisson between historical representations of the Sublime landscape and our perception, imagination and memory of experience.’ – Tate.

Mariele is a Professor at Bath Spa University. www.marieleneudecker.co.uk
