Description: 

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 03/08/2022 - 08/08/2022
    
What does COLLECTIVE mean? Does it mean all experience must be shared OR does it mean that a collective agreement to act can incorporate different experience, action and gesture - and still have shared meaning?

This workshop aims to produce a series of shared gestures - or a collective tableau of gesture - that can be photographed, filmed or drawn by the group, forming a collective work. What is significant is that the final project evolves through the group workshop process which will be discursive, experiential and ask participants to respond to the proposition - bringing themselves and their studio practice to the process.

The ideas and work will build over 5 days of workshops and will involve small group work, pair work and individual exercises. People will be asked to think about the role of image, text and the embodiment of gesture (which will include some activities that require the use of the body).

Helen Cammock works across film, photography, print, text and performance. She produces works stemming from a deeply involved research process that explore the complexities of social histories. Central to her practice is the voice: the uncovering of marginalised voices within history, the question of who speaks on behalf of whom and on what terms, as well as how her own voice reflects in different ways on the stories explored in her work.

Helen's practice is characterised by fragmented, non-linear narratives. Her work makes leaps between different places, times and contexts, forcing viewers to acknowledge complex global relations and the inextricable connection between the individual and society. She's interested in histories, storytelling and the excavation, re-interpretation and re-presentation of lost, unheard and buried voices.

In 2018 Helen won the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery, and in 2019, she won the Turner Prize for her solo exhibition The Long Note - a film which explores the history and role of women in the civil rights movement in Derry Londonderry in 1968. Helen won along with Tai Shani, Oscar Murillo and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, after jointly requesting from the jury that all four artists win "in the name of commonality, multiplicity and solidarity".

Helen's work was screened as part of the Serpentine Cinema Series and Tate Artists Moving Image Screening Programme. She has exhibited at venues including Cubitt, London; Galerie Futura Alpha Nova, Berlin; The Tetley, Leeds; Open Source Contemporary Arts Festival; Hollybush Gardens, London; and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, London. She has written for Photoworks and Aperture magazine and was shortlisted for the Bridport poetry prize in 2015. Her work has been published in The Photographers' Gallery journal Loose Associations and in a new artist book and vinyl 12" with Bookworks, London. Helen was co-director of Brighton Photo Fringe Festival for 4 years.

On The Edge And Out Of Control: The Making Of A Tragedy with Tai Shani And Florence Peake

This multidisciplinary arts workshop will explore strategies revolving around inhibition, control, coherence and disorder, culminating in the devising of a performance. Expect elements of performance, installation, sculpture and visual arts.

Tai Shani's practice encompasses performance, film, photography and sculptural installations, frequently structured around experimental texts. Taking inspiration from disparate histories, narratives and characters mined from forgotten sources, Shani creates dark, fantastical worlds, brimming with utopian potential. These deeply affective works often combine rich and complex monologues with arresting, saturated installations, manifesting equally disturbing and divine images in the mind of the viewer. Last year, Tai's work "DC: SEMIRAMIS" commissioned by Glasgow International and The Tetley (Leeds, UK) and her participation in "Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance", was nominated for the Turner Prize. She won, along with Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, after jointly requesting from the jury that all four artists win "in the name of commonality, multiplicity and solidarity". 

Recent exhibitions and commissions include work at Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2016); RADAR commission, Loughborough University, (2016), Serpentine Galleries (2016); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2015); Southbank Centre, London (2014-15); Arnolfini, Bristol (2013); Matt’s Gallery, London (2012) and FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and Loop Festival, Barcelona (2011); The Barbican, London (2011); and ICA, London (2011).

Florence Peake is a London-based artist who has been making work since 1995. She makes solo and group performance works intertwined with an extensive visual art practice. Presenting work internationally and across the UK in galleries, theatres and outdoors, she is known for an approach which is at once sensual and witty, expressive and rigorous, political and intimate. Her performance practice uses drawing, painting and sculpture combined with found and fabricated objects placed in relation to the moving body. Her work explores notions of materiality and physicality; the body as site and vehicle of protest, and political concerns around freedom, the anthropocene and the commodification of art. By encouraging chaotic relationships between the body and material, she creates radical and outlandish performances, creating temporary alliances and micro-communities within the audience. Following on from performances she often creates sculpture and painting; these artworks serve as documentation but also as ways of processing the experience of the performance itself, relationships with dancers, audiences and sites.

Florence's work has been presented at CRAC Occitanie, Sète, France (2018), MDT Stockholm, Sweden (2018), London Contemporary Music Festival, UK (2018), Bosse & Baum, London, UK (2019); De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, UK (2018); Palais De Tokyo, Paris, France (2018); Hayward Gallery, London UK (2018), Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge, UK (2017), Studio Leigh, London UK (2017); Sara Zanin Gallery, Rome, Italy (2017); Serpentine, London UK (2016); Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK (2016); ICA, London (2016); Modern Art Oxford (2016); BALTIC, Newcastle UK (2013), Frieze, London UK (2013), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2012), and Venice Biennale 2019. As a performer, Florence has worked with filmmakers, artists and choreographers including Joe Moran, Gaby Agis, Tai Shani, Jonathan Baldock, Serena Korda, Nicola Conibere, Gary Stevens,  Station House Opera and Theatre of Mistakes.

Workshop dates: 06/07/2022 - 11/07/2022
    
At this turning point between Earth rights and Earth fragility, how might we divine messages from the non-human inhabitants of our ecosystems to protect our collective future and find hope, despite threats? Can the trees and small creatures of the world teach us to adapt to a global crisis even as much of the world holds its breathe in the face of catastrophe? Are there threads from cultural, scientific and even spiritual knowledge to lead us out of a labyrinth of trouble? Activities in this workshop are designed to go beyond mindfulness and hear the silent cries of alarm and the whispers of hope we can pass on to others to collectively find the answers we need, welcome or not.

Each day of the workshop will focus on employing familiar tools in new ways: walking, journaling, recording, sharing and discussing the implications of our observations. Our frame of reference for these exercises will be the rules of trigger point theory with the goal of identifying points for possible intervention in environmental cascades.

Aviva Rahmani is one of the most important artists contributing to the current movement of environmental art. Her public and ecological art projects have involved collaborative interdisciplinary community teams with scientists, planners, environmentalists and other artists, and her projects range from complete landscape restorations to museum venues that reference painting, sound and photography.

She began her career as a performance artist, founding and directing the American Ritual Theatre (1968-1971), performing throughout California. In 1971, she collaborated with Judy Chicago, Suzanne Lacy, and Sandi Orgel on Ablutions, now considered a groundbreaking feminist performance work on rape. After graduating from California Institute of the Arts and getting her PhD from Plymouth, Aviva began presenting workshops on her theoretical approach to environmental restoration, and her transdisciplinary work has been exhibited internationally. 

Aviva's video documentation Gulf to Gulf sessions have made international impact, and it's precursor "Trigger Points/Tipping Points" premiered at the 2007 Venice Biennale. In 2002, her pioneering community action project "Blue Rocks" helped restore degraded wetlands on Vinalhaven Island, Maine (triggering a USDA investment of over $500,000). "The Blued Trees Symphony" (2015 - present) has received numerous awards and had huge impact around the globe.

"Ghost Nets 1990-2000", one of Aviva's best known works, includes her original theories of environmental restoration and trigger point theory. In 2012, she applied trigger point theory and the "Gulf to Gulf" webcasts to "Fish Story Memphis," a multi-part public art project. In 2006, she initiated a series of podcasts, "Virtual Cities and Oceans of If", which segued into webcasts on climate change. She is currently an Affiliate with the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado (UCB), where she has been collaborating with the Director, James White since 2007 on "Gulf to Gulf", a series of webcasts on global warming with other scientists, artists and thinkers. Their first collaborative work premiered with Cultura21 in the Joseph Beuys Pavilion of the 2007 Venice Biennale.

In 2007, in collaboration with White, Aviva appeared in the collective exhibition Weather Report, debuting her work "Trigger Points, Tipping Points". She displayed a series of digital prints that superimposed satellite imagery with textual warnings on the morphing and changing of climate change on the global landscape. Her work embodies a discourse that focuses on the power dynamics of disaster and how rising sea levels will not only effect landscape, but also result in the relocation of communities and refugee migration. She seamlessly ties together climate change with the themes of class, power, and justice - a conversation frequently not as prevalent in the global warming conversation.
