Inspired by the exhibition “A Question of Taste” that focuses on the close relationship of kitsch with contemporary visual culture as well as its critical role in shaping taste, we talk about the concept of taste. With inspiration from the artist Bruno Miguel, who transforms porcelains into his artwork “These People in the Dining Room” with materials including foam, wire, papier maché as well as vibrant colors; we create original sculptures using a combination of porcelain toys, play dough, chenille and model trees. This workshop works on 3D designs, spurs our creativity and gives us a platform to visualize what is imagined and express it freely through materials.

Il Cavallo di Leonardo

Il Cavallo di Leonardo

In 1493, exactly 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci was finishing the preparations for casting the equestrian monument (4 times life size), which Ludovico il Moro, Duke of Milan commissioned in memory of his father some 12 years earlier. 

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
