The session started with the group hearing about Anna’s career and practice and specifically how she was inspired by Malevich’s Dance of Forms for a past project.
This was followed by a visit to the exhibition, during which the group was tasked with choosing 3 motifs from Malevich’s work to use in the first making session of the workshop. The group reinterpreted these motifs in vinyl and applied them to the glass windows of Tate Modern’s East Room, much like when Malevich and his students who decorated the town of Vitebsk as part of their work as members of the UNOVIS artist group.
The afternoon was a busy one; inspired by the Dance of Forms and Anna’s practice, the group designed, constructed and decorated individual costumes and an entire set to pose in in the space of only a few hours – a real feat! We finished the session with a photo-shoot to showcase all the pieces that had been made.
The final outcomes were a real mixture of both Malevich and Anna Lomax’ practice. Safe to say Late Tab definitely went out with a Malevich-themed bang!
Hope you enjoyed the highlights. Looking forward to sharing what we get up to in 2015 in London!
