From: 17/02/2017 To: 18/02/2017 10:30 - 15:30
Location: St Andrews Museum, Kinburn Park, Doubledykes Road, St Andrews, KY16 9DP
A series of exciting and inspiring events to accompany the first solo exhibition in Scotland of artist Jasleen Kaur.
To accompany Jasleen Kaur’s first Scottish solo exhibition at St Andrews Museum FCA&C have organised some events to brighten up winter days and encourage creative thoughts and actions.
Unusually the exhibition includes not only films and sculpture but an object designed by the artist which is produced commercially. As a keen cook herself Jasleen was aware of how Indian cooks work very intuitively. In order to help a wider group of people get the ingredients right to create some staple recipes, she invented the brightly decorated Tala Curry Measure which as well as being useful is an attractive addition to any kitchen! FCA&C now have a measure to give away. Visitors to the exhibition who complete a questionnaire about their visit will be included in the prize draw at the end of February.
Jasleen Kaur will be back in St Andrews to take part in a symposium on Friday 17 February 2017. Titled Thinking, Making + Matter the event starts with a visit to the exhibition then continues for the remainder of the day at the Byre Theatre. Artists and curators will present and discuss their ideas and experiences around current approaches to making and curating in visual arts, craft and design highlighting the crossovers. The Keynote speaker will be London-based designer Ted Hunt alongside presentations from London-based curator Amanprit Sandhu, curator Catriona Duffy of Panel and contemporary ceramic artist James Rigler. Places can be booked via the FCA&C website.
On Saturday 18 February 2017 Jasleen Kaur will lead a free, drop-in Bodging workshop at St Andrews Museum from 1.30m to 3.30pm. Join her for a cobbling together of words and things. Her 'Bodge Poetry’ is a means of generating bizarre objects and artworks, sparking invention and hands-on making. Participants will work with everyday, found materials that inspire Jasleen's own object-making, to construct artefacts of their own. It’s ideal for families with children aged five plus, but also suitable for people of any age who want to stretch their imaginations.
Young visitors can also continue to take part in drop-in activities at the museum which have already generated some amazing miniature plasticine busts inspired by work in Jasleen’s show.
