Location: Oxo Tower Wharf, Barge House St, South Bank, London SE1 9PH
World renowned multimedia artist Nelly Agassi will lead this Closet Cleanse workshop, encouraging participants to bring along items of clothing they no longer want/need and in turn exploring their own personal backgrounds and experiences through the notion of our past being 'embroidered' in our clothes. The workshop will also explore intense labour, consumerism and related human emotional voids.
Participants will deconstruct second hand items of clothing and create something new in relation to a memory, whilst exploring these concepts.
This class will allow you access to the exhibition on the date of the class, however will only allow a one time entry.
