Join the Gatherers artists in an Intro to Collage workshop led by the shows curator and artists Rebecca Clouâtre and Kristina Corre.
Rebecca and Kristina will guide participants through their artistic processes, sharing techniques for cutting, composing, and pasting found images to create narrative collage works.
In this 2-hour workshop, participants will use magazines and ephemera provided by Gallery 101 and from the Gatherers' personal collections to add to the exhibition's communal collage piece, as well as to create their own works to bring home.
This workshop is open to all skill levels.
RSVP space is limited: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rebecca Clouâtre’s hand-cut paper collages aim to encourage viewers to contemplate the intricacies of nature and our complex relationships with it. The importance of human connection, the breaking down of hierarchies, and a focus on a holistic world view frequently influence her creative process.
Clouâtre is an emerging collage artist based in Ottawa, Ontario. In 2015 she received a Masters degree in Art History from Carleton University, with a concentration in Art Exhibition and Curatorial Studies. Her collage work amalgamates a variety of imagery, including vintage, black and white photographs and pictures from the natural world. Inspired by natural history illustration from the 1800s and Surrealism, Clouâtre aims to create whimsical scenes that invite viewers into her built dreamscapes. With the intention of bringing attention to tangible objects that have otherwise been discarded or forgotten about, most of Clouâtre’s imagery is sourced from a variety of paper-based paraphernalia – such as magazines and books – which have been scavenged from used bookstores, yard sales and thrift shops.
Kristina Corre is a Filipina Canadian artist whose meditative collage works explore cultural and personal identity. Formally trained in architecture, Kristina’s education at the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism at Carleton University instilled in her a meticulousness of craft, a love of materiality, and the importance of narrative in image-making. These three paramount lessons, combined with her explorations into the social, aesthetic, and artistic unpacking of what it means to take up space, are what currently drive her practice of handcut, minimalist found image and object collage.
For Kristina, one of the greatest unexpected joys of her collage practice has been leading workshops and sharing the unique methods of her process to groups large and small, at all skill levels. Collaging is an incredibly accessible art form, and Kristina loves giving folks time, pace and permission to play, cut, and paste. Kristina has been lucky enough to lead workshops at The Westboro Brainery, Possible Worlds Artspace, #Hashtag Gallery, Pineapple Lab Manila, and The National Gallery of Canada (to a crowd of 147 people!).
