In this exciting workshop with the American artist in residence Brianna Leatherbury, we will investigate our relationships with objects and materials. We start by collecting materials. These can come from anywhere and be anything. From objects found on the street or picked up during a nature walk to things we take with us from home.

As we collect materials, we keep several questions in mind:
How was this object made? How do these materials relate to each other? What is their history? How did it get into our hands? What new possibilities can we imagine for this?
In addition, the materials tell their own stories. Seams tell the story of the production, scratches of use and repairs how much it has been cared for. In this workshop we will look at these stories, try to unfold them together and then think about new stories that these materials can become part of We do this in response to our own personal and communal stories that come to mind in everything we touch. Each participant brings their own context and knowledge, contributing to a shared pool of perspectives that help us interpret the materials.

Based on our own stories, we work with our material and create a new object from the collected items by hand and using a variety of tools and techniques, drawing inspiration from the creative atmosphere of the annual carnival. At the end of the workshop, each participant has made something for themselves. This can be a sculpture for the home or a working tool. But also, an intervention in a public space or even a mask for carnival.

Brianna Leatherbury is an artist based in Amsterdam, which recent work begins with research that is both personal and structural. They create abstract systems that explore the material effects of economic forces through individual relationships. Using a combination of sculpture, performance, and documentation, their works are testimonies to the effects of our contemporary economies, interrogating presence and seeking new opportunities of relation. Leatherbury received the BFA from The Cooper Union in New York and completed a Fulbright Student Research award in Moscow, where they also held a residency at Gallery Elektrozavod. They recently participated in De Ateliers in Amsterdam.
