Art has one job and that is to make people feel. So how do the Spot Paintings in ‘Günther Förg. Tupfenbilder’ make us feel?
Like Förg’s own experiment, the event will allow a small group to explore ‘unlearning’ and play in their own lives through a series of facilitated mindful exercises involving movement, stillness, conversation and drawing. Inspired by phenomenology, you will have the time to notice the sensations, memories and imaginations that emerge when time is spent with the works. This playful session will leave you feeling more aware and connected to the works, each other and yourself. The bespoke experience will be facilitated by Gaylene Gould and Zaynab Bunsie.
About How Do You Feel How Do You Feel is an experience inspired by Gaylene’s Radio 4 documentary Transcendence: How Can I Feel Art Again? which explored ways to feel art more deeply and can be heard on BBC Sounds.
