Event description

Description

Going beyond our conceptions of food and waste, Agnieszka Pokrywka will work on a series of previously compiled tutorials that will instruct visitors on how to utilize constantly growing elements of the body such as hair, skin and bacteria in order to repurpose them into edibles and objects for daily use.

Tuesday through Friday, between 4:00-5:00pm, Pokrywka will work on a different tutorial, whether conceptually or practically, using hair, nails, saliva, tears and body secretions. Everyone is welcome to join for a chat and spontaneous experimentation. No special tools needed. Just bring yourself.

The workshops will conclude with a final event on Saturday, January 19, from 4:00-6:00pm. Pokrywka will present the week's creations and discuss self-recycling and self-sufficiency within the 21st century conception of the self.

Agnieszka Pokrywka (PL/FI) is working in the spirit of decentralization, collective participation, and fermentation. These themes emerge in her work as a cultural organiser, where she re-rethinks standardised structures of creative production. She also applies these interests in multimedia and non-linear documentary storytelling. Sometimes she at least tries to make the world look better while working as a graphic and motion designer.

Peer2Pickle is an Open Call exhibition at apexart organized by Justin Tyler Tate.
