Workshop

 

Title: Make your own JUMPSUIT! - workshop

Artists: The Rational Dress Society - Maura Brewer & Abigail Glaum-Lathbury

Saturday May 2, 2015 - 10:00 am

 

In this workshop at Persbo Studio we will spend a full day learning to construct our own JUMPSUITS, following the

official Rational Dress Society pattern. Students will select from 120 sizes and by the end of the class, each student will have

a wearable, ungendered monogarment to replace all other clothes in perpetuity. What if you never had to pick out an outfit

again? What bonds might be formed between JUMPSUIT-wearing individuals? Come to the workshop and find out!

 

All participants should bring a minimum of 3 meters of non-stretch woven fabric (such as denim, twill or duck cloth) in a color

or print of their choice. Additionally, students will need to bring a working sewing machine, scissors that will cut fabric,

pins, a 68 - 76 cm metal non-separating zipper, thread to match your fabric, and a seam ripper.

 

 

 

Lecture/ event

 

Title:Lost and Found

Artists: Fredrik Strid

Saturday June 2, 2012

 

The artist Fredrik Strid is holding a lecture in conjunction to take off of his 2 month walking project Lost and found.

 

 

"...On June 2nd, 2012 I embarked on a 1200 km long walk from my studio in Sweden to an exhibition space in northern Norway. On the 48 day long walk, I brought a specially built museum podium that was coated in white paint. Every morning during the walk I painted the podium anew with a coat of white linseed-oil paint; this sticky

paint attracted insects and dirt that eventually became stuck in it. On the following day the dirt and the insects were

embedded in the surface with the new application of paint...."

Performance/Exhibition

 

Title:†33T

Artists: Trygve Luktvasslimo

Sunday June 19, 2011

 

†33T is a project specifically created for Persbo Studio. This

umbrella title includes three components: a performance in the

chapel, an installation of drawings in the barn, and a permanent

sculpture which inaugurated the sculpture park.

 

The title †33T alludes to the numerological connection between

the artist recently turning †33T and that being the same age that

Jesus died.

 

Luktvasslimo sets the occult within navel-gazing pop culture in

relation to individual perceptions. †33T materializes the baseless

argument and exposes us and the artist to the rhetoric of

mainstream media and contemporary culture. The project takes

on an authoritarian voice which speaks in tongues; echoes in the

chapel; exhausts, motivates and questions the freedom of

choice of the common man. Luktvasslimo reevaluates trivial

gestures and articulates them with monumental reverberations.

†33T exists in the space between manipulation and proselytization.

Check out the sculpture park page to see the sculpture part of this project.
