SUMMER ACADEMY 2019
DRAWING SCULPTURE & PLASTER CAS
APPROACH TO THE THIRD DIMENSION
Free sculpturing and working on living model
Markus Delago / Aron Demetz
In this section of the course, we try to continue our own results achieved in the drawing course and to implement them sculpturally. There is also the opportunity to orientate yourself according to a living model, but to develop an independent work. Even if time is limited, it is important to us to try to analyse and critically question the appropriated approaches of the students in order to seek opportunities for further development.
Classic and conventional materials such as clay, plaster and cardboard should be the basis for exploring new ways of representing the body.
Dealing with these simple materials is no longer a given at today's places of study, therefore a challenge for us to reconsider the simple and to reshape contemporary thought processes.
Markus Delago and Aron Demetz will analyse the entire body with the students, and both will explore connections to space, volume, and material.
The practical approach should be supplemented by theoretical discussion in order to continue the own competences and to tackle them from other perspectives.
