Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March, Turner Contemporary in Margate

Freshly back from Nairobi, Chris ran two half-term family focussed workshops at the Turner Contemporary in Margate on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March.
The Turner Contemporary opened in April 2011 and has been celebrated as a great success, attracting cultural regeneration to this traditional English seaside town. Each day attracted over 115 participants, some of whom returned for the second day which created a record length of film during the three hour session - creating more than 25 minutes worth of abstract hand drawn animation! 
Chris also delivered a swift visit and lecture in Canterbury at the University of the Creative Arts speaking to 1st year Fine Art students about Unravel, his artistic practice including his residency in Kenya. The workshop was also related to the work in the gallery spaces by Rosa Barba who's kinetic scuptures with 16mm film projectors were incredibly relevant to the Unravel workshops and participants - even utilising the same Elf Eiki projector. Chris's role during the film shoot of the co-comisssion in Manchester included blowing the dust that can be seen shining through a hole in the wall within the 35mm film installation on view in the main gallery space. 
Thanks Margate - see you again on the 1st March for the sixth form master -class...
