In the context of art PLASTIQUE, OBORO collaborates with Turbine to welcome a professional workshop in which seven contemporary artists who integrate sculpture into their practice will be invited to familiarize themselves with 3D modelling and printing. Spaced over two days, the workshop will consist of a technical demonstration and a testing period directed by specialized instructors and will conclude with a roundtable open to the public.
Presented as part of les Journées de la culture, the roundtable will return on the artists’ experience and allow a discussion around the issues raised by this tridimensional production method in process of democratization. Not only will the artists involved in the workshop be able to teach themselves to a new technique, but they will also be able to consider it in perspective in accordance with their practice, to question and make it their own. The public will be deepen its knowledge of contemporary artistic processes and will also be able to demystify the 3D production device.
Conceived as a cycle of complementary activities highlighting Turbine's 15 years of existence, art PLASTIQUE brings to light the artistic potentials of 3D printing, demystifies its uses and aims to bring awareness to a greater community composed of artists, researchers and a general public of all ages and backgrounds.
