WE CAN ALL REMEMBER PAINTINGS OR STORIES OR PLAYS WE MADE WHEN WE WERE KIDS, BUT WHAT ABOUT LIVE ART?
In 2016 Sibylle Peters undertook a LADA Study Room research residency exploring Live Art practices and methodologies in working with children and young people as part of Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four, a project on the ways in which Live Art has developed new forms of access, knowledge, agency, and inclusion in relation to the disempowered constituencies of the young, the old, the displaced, and those excluded through social and economic barriers.
As part of her research Sibylle was interested in artist’s first ever artworks. My Very First Piece of Live Art invited artists to remember what their first Live Art work might have been. On the evening of 16 December 2016 the artists Anne Bean, Richard DeDomenici, Cara Davies, Joshua Sofaer, Peter Kennedy, Andy Field, and Ansuman, Oshin and Uma Biswas gathered at the Live Art Development Agency to share their memories, which can be viewed here.
The Study Room Guide and toolkit of methodologies created by Sibylle from her research residency can be found on the LADA website.
