Papier-Mâché: Grotesque Figures

Pera Adult

  • March 17, 2023 / 19:00

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.

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.

It’s better to burn out than to fade away

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
