Shibori is a traditional Japanese textiles dyeing technique, where by folding, tying, stitching, twisting, compressing a fabric, patterns are created.

During the workshop, while enjoying a cup of tea, we will talk about a variety of textiles dyeing techniques and dyes, answer the questions you might have, and, most importantly, everyone will get a chance to experiment with Shibori dyeing and create something unique.

Gegužės 2 dieną Ideas Block kūrybinėje erdvėje vyks mano tekstilės Shibori dažymo dirbtuvės.

Registruotis į šiuos užsiėmimus galite siųsdami žinutę Ideas Block LT.

Shibori – tai tradicinė audinių dažymo ir marginimo technika, atkeliavusi iš Japonijos, kur lankstymo, rišimo, siuvimo, suspaudimo, susukimo, suvyniojimo pagalba yra išgaunami raštai.

Dirbtuvių metu prie puodelio arbatos pakalbėsime apie įvairias dažymo technikas, dažų tipus, atsakysime į jums kilusius klausimus, na ir svarbiausia, visi galės patys paeksperimentuoti su shibori dažymu bei pasigaminti šį tą unikalaus.

Atisnešk baltus (ar kitos spalvos) marškinėlius, sijoną, pagalvėlę ar tiesiog bet kokį audinį, kurį norėtum nusidažyti. Viskas tinka, kas yra pagaminta iš natūralaus pluošto, tokio kaip MEDVILNĖ ar LINAS (sintetinė ar pusiau sintetinė tekstilė netinka).

Visus jūsų atsineštus baltus audinius dažysime, o spalvotus – balinsime. Rekomenduojame atsinešti dviejų tipų medžiagas, jei netyčia vienas audinys būtų netinkamas dažymui, vistiek turėtumėte dar vieną bandymą.

Dažais bei kitomis priemonėmis pasirūpinsime mes.

Dirbtuvių trukmė – 1.5 – 2 valandos

Kaina: 10 €

Užsiėmimas vyks lietuvių arba/ir anglų kalba (pagal dalyvių pageidavimus).

Language – Interdisciplinary Art Exhibition in Collaboration with Roberto Becerra

We still have our first exhibition, called Language, running at the new creative space we opened just a few weeks ago – Ideas Block LT, in Vilnius, Lithuania. Showing from Feb 9 to March 9, 2017. Work in collaboration with Roberto Becerra.

About the exhibition

Language is energy. Through voice and language energy is transferred. With different purposes is this energy expressed, molded and conveyed. From a certain perspective, language is only energy what we utter and use it to communicate with others.

Such energy reaches our sensorial input, and its processed as mere impulses, in a way loosing all meaning or sense, until it is interpreted, decoded or understood by the brain structures trained in a set of sound patterns.

Language is nature. It is a natural treat of organisms, and it evolves to its fullest potential, restrained only by the characteristics of the vehicle that carries it. In this vein, language is a shared feature that fulfills the same objective regardless of the species or, in the case of humans, national/cultural tongue.

Information is shared, communication is achieved, messages are transmitted, and the medium is this energy transfer embedded in language and vocal expressions.

Language is flow. This transmission of information is happening in a stream of energy that is emitted and received.

In this installation theses ideas are hinted by means of a long, cylinder-like shape, from floor to ceiling, in the centre of the gallery, made from fabric, dyed producing organic patterns, with tree sections in the base, and light moving inside as a sort of up and downwards flow.

To enhance the concept of the energy content in the voice and language, the sculpture picks up the sound of its surroundings, which in the context of the installation and gallery is made up of people’s voices. The audio is accumulated, looped and played back to the audience, so after time of operating and when excited by the audience’s voices, the installation starts to resonate, feed back on itself and pulsate.
