We design peculiar figures with papier-mâché, a composite material that Paula Rego often uses to create realistic scenes that will be model for her drawings! This workshop is based on Rego's work titled "The Oratorio", a large cabinet containing the artist's eight paintings on its surfaces and grotesque doll figures in the center. In the workshop, the participants experience the diversity of expressions offered by the human body and the way an expression can take form. Experiencing several different papier-mâché techniques in the workshop, the participants follow the forms they create with improvisation inspired by the works in the exhibition.

About Giz’li Atölye Kolektifi
Giz’li Atölye has been operating in Caferağa, Kadıköy since 2004, established with the cooperation of Gizem Gürsel and Sedef Kermen. Giz’li Atölye has recently turned into a collective production area by incorporating different disciplines and continues its creative activities by incorporating solidarity, diversity of ideas and communication experiences into its art practices.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.
