Bundanon

This theme focuses on the human condition and responsibilities, with engagement in social issues and commentary leading to connection and development of empathy. There are two options within this theme, We are in the World and Speaking Up.

Limbic: We are in the world

Image making can be a powerful way to engage with the world and consider one’s place in the world. Still and moving images are created to explore social issues and commentary. The juxtaposition of the human body with the natural and constructed world leads to questions of care for the environment and human dominance within in.

Activities for Limbic: We are in the world

Collection Connection (1 hour)

Participants explore and analyse artworks by Izabela Pluta, Rosemary Laing, and Camille Serisier and the social commentary expressed through their work and how photography is presented in the expanded field of art and diverse visions of the world.

The Natural (2 hours)

Participants will explore the creek and learn about some of the endangered species that share this location with humans. Participants will explore ways in which to move through the landscape with a light touch and capture photographic images of the micro, focusing on textures and lines in nature.

The Figure and Environment (3 hours)

Participants collaborate in groups to take images or video of distortion and exaggeration using the human body in the environment. Participants experiment with props such as lens balls, mirrors, and prisms to develop the concept of expressive images as well as drama and narrative. Participants may choose to bring pre-prepared objects or imagery with symbolic or other meanings to be incorporated as part of an installation.

All for One (3 hours)

Develop a final work, refining the intention and expressive content using techniques such as digital imaging, collage and sound recordings.

Extension activities for Limbic: We are in the world

Designed to deepen the exploration into the theme and completed in the groups own time.

The Natural: participants are encouraged to print images that captured lines in the landscape. Working together as a group connect the individual images to create a large installation.

Limbic: Speaking up 

This program develops the concept of artworks as a means of speaking up, inspired by contemporary textile artists from around the world such as Peter Waple Crowe, Yinka Shonabare, Nadia Hernandez, Raquel Ormella and Rebecca Mayo whose work engages with social commentary and diverse perspectives on issues such as migration and the environment. This program includes two activities that experiment with various techniques including eco-dyeing, shibori, assemblage, drawing, rubbings and printing. The material developed from these activities then combined to make a finished artwork.

Activities for Limbic: Speaking up

Collection Connection (1 hour)

Critically analyse textiles works by contemporary artists within the Bundanon Collection and Art Museum as a starting point for developing a conceptual approach to textiles.

The Dye Pots (2 hours)

This activity involves the development of ideas and extends artmaking through textile practices of eco-dyeing. Cotton, silk and wool fabrics and paper are layered with natural dye plants and bound in bundles. Stencils, text shapes and cut outs are applied to the layers. The bundles are immersed in dye pots of eucalyptus, turmeric, and bark, creating pattern, colour and texture combinations. Shibori is also included.

Exploratory printing (3 hours)

Participants will experiment with text in the form of slogans, poetry and signs to incorporated into the process and act of making. Layering text and natural objects using Gelli plate printing and stencils builds layers onto the eco-dyed and other fabrics.

Assemblage (3 hours)

Using stitching and other embellishment, a textile work such as a sculpture, artist book, wearable artwork, banner, is developed, emphasizing the textual elements and messages in the work. Emotional resonance and meaning in colour is explored.
