Workshop Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 February,

Observe, collect, reduce, reuse – Photographic exercises related to book making, with Bärbel Praun

max 8 participants
200 euro
info and subscriptions: info@leporello-books.com

Bärbel Praun is a visual artist working at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance. Her current bodies of work deal with her obsession with the climate crisis, the pollution and exploitation of the Earth, which deeply influences the content and methodology of her work. Using found objects, she creates ephemeral sculptures and installations that address the relationship between object, material and space, the value of our everyday material world and the visibility of process and time.

The workshop will be a place for gathering and sharing thoughts and reflections on the relationship between photography and time, and on our relationship with the world around us through a series of exercises to explore together and engage with.
After giving some insights on her methodology and work process, focusing on the one hand on her series and self-published book Office Figures and on the other on other artists’ work examples, Bärbel will work with the workshop participants on the idea of her body of work Impermanent Sculptures (of Indestructible Objects), using a performative approach and simple printing and book making techniques, based on the limitation and possibilities of a black and white A4 laser printer.
