  • October 22, 2021 / 19:00

Do what we learn from our gut feeling and the burden on our shoulders determine where we look, how we look at it and how we see? We reflect on the concepts of reality, part of a whole, the whole itself and existence while interpreting these gut feelings and the burden using a being that we see around us all the time and often do not realize we step on, such as a rock/stone. In the workshop, we will use soap, which has become an everyday staple. We reflect on the physical properties of this material and compare it with the properties of stone. We give soap a new look, a new reality by giving it form, creating texture from it and painting it.

Materials
Classic white skin soap (several pieces)
Utility knife
Acrylic paint or watercolor
Hard materials that can be used to create texture (toothpicks, steel wool, fork, a textured stick, etc.)
A container full of water
A piece of cloth

Venuses Throughout History

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.

Works by a large number of students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo deal with current and often painful themes from the socio-political, economic and cultural reality, raising awareness, appealing, warning, opening issues and offering new interpretations.
