Here in opportunity to spend three days with Clare Strand at her workshop PROTOCOLS OF THE UNKNOWN. Clare is a remarkable camera artist who is not afraid to take risks in her practice which extends the photographic medium beyond mere representation and description.
The participants will be exploring the open-ended subject of chance… What happens when your decision making and shaping of form are separated from aesthetic sensibility and the canons of the very obvious? Chance your luck in the face of logic and the sensible. Join Clare Strand to celebrate the joy of not knowing.. whilst making.
Clare Strand's work is held in the collections of Arts Council England; The National Collection; The British Council; The Folkwang Museum; The Unicredit Bank; The New York Library; The Victoria and Albert Museum; The Centre Pompidou and many private collections. There are two publications Clare Strand Monograph published by Steidl (2007) and most recently Skirts published by GOST (2013). Strand is also one half of the ideas based collective MacDonaldStrand and head of the Intangiable for The Institute of Unnecessary Research. "Getting Better and Worse at the Same Time" by Clare Strand is on show until 06 June at Grimaldi Gavin gallery (London).
The workshop will take place in the beautiful classroom and garden of a Victorian House located at West Norwood, London. The space is managed by The Meanwhile Foundation, a national charity set up by Brent Council in London and Locality, that champions meanwhile use of empty property as a valuable way for supporting regeneration and connecting local people with the assets in their town centre's and neighborhoods.
