In-Person Sculpture Marathon – with Jilaine Jones
The interconnected field between body and place, considered through both objective and empathetic viewing, will be experiential source of this Sculpture Marathon. Each shared Sculpture studio at the Studio School, with distancing, will have a model and physical structure continuously present throughout the duration of the Marathon. Working with a range of materials, scales, and processes will generate the consideration of different issues: formal (inclusive of volume forms, structure, gravity, mechanics of the body and architecture); invention by metaphor and feeling; and the parallel nature and manipulation of materials. Our work will continuously transfer and realize ideas directly within the parameters of a specific material (including clay, wire, linear steel, wood, cardboard, plaster, and in combination). Frequent discussions and viewing of the work in progress will encourage experimental propositions. We will not be engaged with correctness of figure representation; but rather, we will engage with working with the body in space through the perspective of 20th/21st century sculptural directions.
