On 15 February 2006, Tim Etchells conducted a workshop at Exeter for the Presence Project.
The workshop will be divided into two parts. In the first Etchells will lead a small group of students in a series of practical exercises. Based on simple rules and performance tasks these will provide a starting point for discussion about how we construct our own presence and that of others and how rules, situations, space and language itself function as the frames through and in which we appear.
The second part of the session will be more in the form of lecture-demonstration. Etchells will use examples from his own practice and that of other artists to expand on the ideas begun in part one, continuing to focus on the ways that limits, frames around and confusions to presence are a key part of its manifestation.
more to come
