Facilitation Piece (for harmonious being) 2017
Artist: Monika Oechsler
Studio: Performance Studio at Chisenhale Dance Space
Time: 7.30 – 8.30pm Friday 20th October
A new live performance conceived by Monika Oechsler in collaboration with artist and technologist Charles Gershom.
Oechsler’s new live work presents two simultaneous and intermittent durational performances, Live Chat & Sound Stage. Both parts explore how our perception of time and place has changed through social media interaction.
Using social media platforms and physical movement, the performative actions will be transformed into an acoustic echo chamber that immerses the viewer in an experimental sonic landscape. The audience may enter at any time during the performance and freely walk around the space of performance.
Artist: Paulina Michnowska
Time: 11.15am – 12.45pm, Saturday 21st October
For: Children accompanied by an adult.
Paulina Michnowska, an artist who incorporates ceramics within her visual allegories, opens her studio for some hands-on clay making. Encouraging family learning, Paulina will teach participants how to work with clay to create individual masks (since it’s nearly Hallowe’en!). She will then fire the masks in an off-site kiln, which participants can collect during the following week.
****update**** We’ve had a lot of requests to make trainers instead of masks, so that’s what we’re going to do! Trainers win!

ARTISTS IN CONVERSATION
Artists: Sarah Kate Wilson and Jeremy Hutchison
Time: 4pm, Saturday 20th October 2017
Join artists Sarah Kate Wilson and Jeremy Hutchison as they discuss cross-overs in their working practices. This special Open Weekend ‘in-conversation’ event will focus on the strategies they employ to produce work and the underpinnings of each of their practices, such as collaboration and labour.
More about the artists:
Sarah Kate Wilson’s paintings defy stasis, meaning any experience of the work, is merely just one of many momentary experiences. She employs materials imbued with particular properties, as a means of ensuring material unfixity and collaborates with audiences to produce paintings that remain in a permanent state of impermanence.
Wilson lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions include ‘Do Disturb’, 2017 at Palais de Tokyo, Paris and ‘Iris’ a solo show at Baltic 39 as part of ‘Figure Three’, Newcastle, 2016. In 2015 she had a solo show at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, California, and in 2014 had a three-person exhibition at The Newlyn Gallery, Cornwall. She curated ‘Painting in Time’ at The Tetley, Leeds in 2015 which then toured to The School of The Arts Institute Chicago, Sullivan Galleries in 2016. Wilson is an Associate Lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL (Painting) and Bath Spa University (Fine Art).
Jeremy Hutchison (b. 1979) is a British artist based in London. Having received a distinction from the Slade School of Fine Art, he was recently a member of the Whitney Independent Study Program, NYC. Often working in sites of production and consumption, he constructs situations that disrupt the power relations encoded in neoliberal ideology. He has recently exhibited at ICA, London; Modern Art Oxford; V&A Museum, London; Bikini Wax, Mexico City; Jerwood Space, London; Fondazione Prada, Athens; Lisson Gallery, London; Z33, Hasselt; Nassauischer Kunstverein, Weisbaden; EVA International Biennale, Limerick; Radar, Loughborough University; Galeri Mana, Istanbul and Southbank Centre, London.
CREATE YOUR EUROPEANPA55PORT
Artist: David Blackmore
Time: 1-5 pm Saturday and Sunday (21 and 22 October)
David Blackmore will be making a participatory artwork that aims to challenge notions of national identity – using transnational European identity as an alternative.
Dependent upon the Open Weekend visitors, who will be working with their own passport covers, this work will instigate, develop and maintain a conversation surrounding the relevance of national and European identity as BREXIT approaches.
David asks that people wishing to fully participate should bring their passports. However, if you’re interested in exploring the idea of European transnationalism and are not willing to use your own passport, an alternative process will be made available.
