This five day course will focus on affects and production of intimacy and connection. There will be writing, drawing, quests and exercises that will hope to create an intense shared space of experience mediated through the virtual tools at our disposal. There will be living on distant stars, there will be remote communion, there will be finding ways back home. We will try and look at ways in which we can invite an audience, a reader, a listener into the uninhibited, highly personal, and how this register, often constructed from specificity of experience, can be dialogical and activated, political and transformative. I hope that strategies and methods will emerge in this course that can be carried forward into the way we make our work in the future.

Tai Shani 's practice encompasses performance, film, photography and sculptural installations, frequently structured around experimental texts. Taking inspiration from disparate histories, narratives and characters mined from forgotten sources, Shani creates dark, fantastical worlds, brimming with utopian potential. These deeply affective works often combine rich and complex monologues with arresting, saturated installations, manifesting equally disturbing and divine images in the mind of the viewer. Last year, Tai's work "DC: SEMIRAMIS" commissioned by Glasgow International and The Tetley (Leeds, UK) and her participation in "Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance", was nominated for the Turner Prize. She won, along with Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, after jointly requesting from the jury that all four artists win "in the name of commonality, multiplicity and solidarity".

Recent exhibitions and commissions include work at Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2016); RADAR commission, Loughborough University, (2016), Serpentine Galleries (2016); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2015); Southbank Centre, London (2014-15); Arnolfini, Bristol (2013); Matt’s Gallery, London (2012) and FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and Loop Festival, Barcelona (2011); The Barbican, London (2011); and ICA, London (2011).



WHERE AND WHEN?

This is an online course, but it involves realtime sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's not a "download these videos and watch them at your leisure" type of thing - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions. We've tried to make this remote session as close as possible to the experience of an onsite workshop at CAMP. The course starts on 19/04/2021 and ends on 23/04/2021. The schedule for sessions is as follows (all times are CET):

  • Session 1: 19/04/2021, 16:00 - 19:00 CET
  • Session 2: 20/04/2021, 16:00 - 19:00 CET
  • Session 3: 21/04/2021, 16:00 - 19:00 CET
  • Session 4: 22/04/2021, 16:00 - 19:00 CET
  • Session 5: 23/04/2021, 16:00 - 19:00 CET
