Event description

Description

The Koppel Project is delighted to be able to provide an intimate workshop with artists Julia Kouneski and Michelle Williams Gamaker. Utilising the breathing bags, or “collective lungs” featured in their video piece Collective Lung, Joshua Tree National Park (2018), on view as part of All About You, workshop participants will explore collective breathing and the relationship between self and other, as well as carry out somatic exercises related to the lungs and breathing. The workshop will also explore the breathing body in all its aspects - from the etymology of the word 'breath', to the cutaneous respiration of reptiles (breathing through the skin), through the symbolic associations of lungs with grief and catharsis.
