Carpe Minuta Prima: the workshop
29 August, 2012 00:00 klo 11-17:00
Featuring artist: Brian Lobel

Ptarmigan is proud to be producing the workshop Carpe Minuta Prima by UK based artist Brian Lobel. The workshop is free to attend but you must register.

In Carpe Minuta Prima, Brian Lobel takes to the street and offers stranger's 1€ for 1 minute of their life, in a work that is an interactive, humourous and meditative reflection on how people spend their time. In this workshop, Lobel will explore methods for interactive/interventionist perform...
ance, ethics in performance, and how artists can negotiate public space. Participants will get the opportunity to develop ideas for interactive performance and think about how embodied experience can be brought to public performance.

On 30th & 31st August you can also participate in the performance installation Carpe Minuta Prima at ScoreStore: Art kiosk, Katajanokka park, Satamakatu, Helsinki.

On 1st September join us for the final event, the unveiling of the bought minutes and your chance to purchase a minute of someone's life! Also at ScoreStore: Art Kiosk.
