Report from the „Parasite” workshop

September 17, 2012 in Patrik Kovačovský, Workshops

On Monday, 10 September, our resident PatrikKovačovski held another workshop, this time titled “Parasite”. We met the participants at GaleriaRaczej, where Patrik, using his previous works as examples, presented the concept of sculpture as a parasite in the urban space.

The workshops had both a theoretical and practical character. We focused on the parasitic relation between the urban fabric and the parasitic sculpture, where the former is a host for the latter, and then we went for a walk along the streets of Poznan to find and photograph places where a „parasite” could find shelter.

After our return to GaleriaRaczej, we discussed the participants’ ideas and the possibilities to make art installations in Poznan basing on the collected material. The project’s key element were the participants’ concepts, their place within the urban fabric and the final effect’s potential influence on urban space users.
