Postponed Autumn 2023, Date TBC
Things in this World: a walking workshop with Kai Lossgott. Tour King’s Lynn in an extraordinary way together. Use the artist’s ‘toolkit for the ecogical imagination’. Reclaim your relationship with post-consumer waste. Learn how to revoice and orchestrate waste in an entirely enjoyable way. Explore, compose, play as you explore King’s Lynn together on foot. Kai is an exhibitor in GroundWork’s current exhibition The Art of Waste, so try to visit the exhibition before the workshop to see and read his very moving work ‘Aftermath’.
Toolkit for the ecological imagination
We will start by finding small, fragments and broken items left behind by humans. Then we will join a play with words using Kai’s wonderful cut-up poetry kit, his ‘toolkit for the ecological imagination’. And along the way we will enjoy a chance music performance by co-creating a one-of-a-kind public assembly using vocal toning and found objects.
The workshop is open to all and no previous experience is required. Kai Lossgott’s performative toolkit for the ecological imagination will guide you through processes that alter your relationship with the world around and in you.
Great for families: learn how to revoice and orchestrate waste in an entirely original way
