Carpe Minuta Prima workshop
workshop : performance : intervention
02 September, 2012 00:00 14:00 - 19:00
Featuring artist: Brian Lobel

Ptarmigan is proud to be producing the workshop Carpe Minuta Prima by UK based artist Brian Lobel. 

In this workshop, London based artist Brian Lobel (see more will explore methods for interactive/interventionist performance, 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.

The workshop is based on his performance "Carpe Minuta Prima", an installation that playfully explores themes of economy, the value of our time and our work, the over-documenting of our lives and what it means to sign away your soul. In August  2012 Ptarmigan is inviting Lobel to develop the performance in Helsinki and a related workshop in Helsinki, Tallinn & Tromsø.
More about the performance:

His original work has been shown at the V&A Museum, British Film Institute, Tate Modern, Duckie, Sadler’s Wells, Brixton Market and Barbican (London), Edinburgh Festival, Brighton Festival, and in over 80 cities internationally. He has received commissions and grants from Wellcome Trust, Arts Council England, Motiroti, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Lobel’s visit is connected to the Due Diligence Development Circuit (DDDC), which both Ptarmigans Helsinki and Tallinn are members of, focusing here on alternative economies and self-organisation.
