Body painting. Personal History. Performance

Workshop with KV Duong

The workshop will focus on strategies and ideas on how to weave one’s life history into your practice, specifically in a performative context. KV will introduce his practice and share sources of ideas and experimentation. Participants will get a demonstration and then try out themselves the following topics: using your body as a paint brush, using sound sourced from youtube and real life (e.g., your voice) and looping the audio, using video projection and video looping/ layering.

Technical requirement: Smart phone with free app ‘Meitu’ downloaded

KV Duong (b.1980 Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) is a London-based artist with a practice that spans painting, sculpture, and performance. Duong grew up in Canada to Chinese Vietnamese parents displaced by the Vietnam War. In his work he explores themes of migration and cultural assimilation, through a re-examination of his parents’ and his own experiences. War trauma and integration correlate with the artist’s coming out as a gay Asian man.

Duong is a self-taught artist with a background in structural engineering. He has performed at Stockholm Supermarket International Art Fair and at various London venues including Raymond Revue Bar. Duong will have his first UK institutional exhibition at the Migration Museum in April 2022.

From Drawing to Painting Live

Workshop with Ram Samocha

This workshop with Draw to Perform's director Ram Samocha will focus the shift from drawing to painting live. The workshop will concentrate on the connection between sharing the process and layering the marks. It will also combine between elements of movement and stillness while making marks and using sound. Participants will experiment with this performative art practice and talk about possible options of working and creating art in real time.

Ram Samocha is a multi-disciplinary artist who currently resides in Brighton, UK. Samocha’s work combines drawing with video, installation, sound, and live performance. Samocha often mixes modern and traditional drawing techniques while searching for new ways to combine between 2D and 3D work. Samocha is the founder of Draw to Perform, an international gathering of artists and theorists involved in drawing performance. Samocha’s work has been recognized nationally and internationally and his work is part of various museums and private collections.
