Workshop:

T - Meet Margherita Soldati

Brainstorming, conceptualising and idea sharing with the artist

1 Jan 4300

Maybe you have touched the ceiling in our toilet? Margherita Soldati is obsessed with manipulating textiles to create organic and repetitive shapes. She started to wonder how she could integrate textile and tactile surfaces in our daily surroundings. The investigation keeps raising new personal research points on how to blur the line between the traditional function of surfaces.

We offer half-hour one-on-one sessions for you to share your ideas with Margherita Soldati.

Sign up by sending an email to workshop@mediamatic.nl.

Brainstorming, conceptualising, and idea sharing with Margherita Soldati - Maxim Damper

For Whom?

The conversations with Margherita are meant for anyone who has a special interest in how objects and materials are in relation to our bodies and senses, and how these relations create a secondary effect on human behavior. In a society that relies mainly on sight, Margherita Soldati wants to stimulate ‘seeing’ with other senses by creating intimate, personal and interactive relations between her works and the visitors.

During the consult, you sit down with the artist to discuss your work, ideas, and challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas.

About the artist

When Margherita Soldati applied organic and repetitive shapes on pillows and simple objects for patients suffering from mental diseases (Alzheimer's, Dementia), she was surprised to realize how they could benefit from stimulation through textile surfaces. The interventions and interactive environments that she creates, aim to trigger a moment of genuine reaction of surprise and curiosity which involves more active and aware use of our senses.

Part of Margherita's work the Skin is the Extension of the Brain is currently displayed at Mediamatic.
