Stööki curates a fashion playground, in collaboration with Kusama & Louis Vuitton.
The event will be held at the TATE Modern on the 24th of March, 13:00-18:00.
Kusama-rise with Stööki
Stööki will lead you through a hands on workshop, adapting kusama’s technique of pattern, repetition and accumulation. At the end of the session you will be styled and photographed within a monochromatic, ultraviolet zone. Which will tie in with the theme of the TATE Modern silent disco.
Live performances in the silent disco will be Lapalux, Koreless and Actress who will set the tone for the day.
In the Stööki fashion workshop participants will create a collaborative pattern on fabric, in a fun pass the parcel format. You will then transform the design into a customised, multi-functional, accessory and style yourself for the Kusama-rise look-book. Once you have completed your look, the UV aesthetic placed on you will make up the final element of the Silent Disco installation.
This is where you become an extra element to the final art piece.
Silent Disco (Turbine Hall)
The environment will reflect the visual language of the Kusama ‘I’m here, but nothing’ installation. Through UV lighting and florescent objects distributed all over the course of the day, as you attend each workshop you will leave with something that blends into the silent disco turning the audience into a piece of art.
The Hello Cube by Hellicar & Lewis
A digital installation that combines interactive software with a physical object in order to create a unique digital experience for both online users and gallery visitors. The software integrates online and social media to create a unique digital interaction that becomes part of the physical installation on the Turbine Hall Bridge at Tate Modern.
Sonic Kusama – Music Workshop
An artist led workshop merging the audio connections between Kusama’s work and creation through visual music interfaces. Specifically the Toshio Iwai designed Tenori-On by Yamaha, used by artists Kieran Hebden (four tet) and Jim Orourke.
Inspired by Kusama’s seminal film Self Obliteration, experimental film artist Rachel Rayns will lead a workshop in drawing 16mm film graffiti. A film will be produced over the course of the day exploring accumulation and pattern. The finished film will be screened as part of the event’s performance programme.
Boom Nails (Styling booth)
Have your nails decorated in a kusama style to camoflage yourself into the silent disco installation.
Textiles with Willow and Bethany
Led by artists Willow and Bethany Mitchell participants are invited to produce a textile cloud sculpture to add to an ever-growing installation throughout the afternoon
