UNDER THE SAME SUN - ACCOMPANYING EVENT

SUN 7, 14, 21, 28 AUG, 2-4PM, CLORE STUDIO, FREE

Overview

In August join artist Hannah Clayden to explore ideas around laughter and humour, and tell us: what makes you laugh? Come along to explore the absurd and the unexpected with some large scale collaborative making. Tell us your best joke, then bring these jokes to life with props and costumes, and experiment with taking them outside the gallery. We will think about how laughter can be radical, whether it can create a sense of solidarity, give those who are ignored a voice, and present a possible force for real social change. 

These workshops run in parallel to Under the Same Sun, and explore emerging themes of humour and social justice from the exhibition.

All sessions are inclusive, for more information on access to the gallery please read here. 

Please note that you don’t have to attend all four sessions to take part. The Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years. 

Hannah Clayden’s practice is primarily collaborative, working across disciplines she deliberately blurs the boundary between art and everyday life, often using humour to take existing situations and re-imagine them. Through play and games, she encourages others to take risks, make mistakes and develop new ways of relating to each other. Most recently she has worked with Gasworks and with Peckham Platform, collaborating with people from a range of ages and backgrounds. Together with artists Rosalie Schweiker and Mario D’Agostino she runs The Pizza, a monthly night held in a flat in Peckham which celebrates people through the medium of pizza.

With thanks to Latin Elephant for their community outreach.
