A workshop with artist Alice Morey
Top Schillerpalais, Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Neukölln, Berlin, Germany
“Compressing Time” is a workshop about the transformation of natural found materials using intense heat. A site specific and processed- based workshop collecting twigs and branches from the local area of Schillerkiez, to then slowly compress the material to make charcoal.
Trees grow over many years and shed their branches. By slowly adding heat to them they will tranform into another element.
Comparable to stones and rocks which are formed over thousands of years through extreme heat and pressure, with this workshop we will mimic a process of change.
Alice Morey breaks the boundaries of traditional methods of painting by working with chemical experiments and creating her own rituals in material processes that lead to large format paintings. Methods she uses combine categorizations of object, painting and performance. Using materials ranging from clay, home-made charcoal,pigments to hydrochloric acid. http://alicemorey.com/
