Moving In / Itinerant Objects at Tate Exchange
Moving In was a collaboration between Trinity Winchester and Winchester School of Art. Working collaboratively through a series of creative workshops, as part of the beta testing for the Tate programme, members of the Trinity Art Group and postgraduate researchers at Winchester School of Art devised a range of participatory activities for all to engage in at Tate Exchange as part of the wider Itinerant Objects programme.
A key theme that emerged during the workshops was making the invisible visible, as well consideration towards a cultural network between all members of community, both local and global, to form as it were a Cultural Silk Road. As presented at Tate Exchange, Moving In comprised of collaborative drawing exercises, wearable cardboard costumes, typography and flights of fancy/performance, through which we were able to explore our relationship to objects and their movement. Furthermore, in drawing on the mission of Trinity Winchester, it highlighted the value of arts and creativity in the promotion of mental health wellbeing, social inclusion and the environment.
Moving In was coordinated by Alastair Eales at Trinity Winchester and Daniel Cid at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. It was the work of members of the Trinity Art Group in collaboration with postgraduate researchers at Winchester School of Art, Ana C?avic? (with Rene?e O’Drobinak, aka Ladies of the Press*), Panagiotis Ferentinos, Eria Nsubuga, Noriko Suzuki-Bosco, and Lucy Woollett.
