Tear, Detach, and Attach: Collage Workshop with Artist Gökçe İrten
This is a collage like no other! Artist Gökçe İrten accompanies us in discovery of our limitless imagination.
“The collage, however, is much more than pieces of everything cut with scissors and pasted together. It is about the way Parajanov viewed the world – a seamless combination of otherwise incompatible objects.” Levon Abrahamian
We learn the subtleties of collage technique with Gökçe İrten, and we create our own composition based on famous filmmaker Parajanov’s artwork. Various material including yarn, craft paper, and recycled material are used unsparingly in these collages that help us discover the compatibility of different materials, and acquire a refreshed sense of composition.
