Price: AED 755+VAT
Capacity limited to: 6 persons
Escape the city life for the tranquil nature of Nad Al Sheba and unlock your relationship with the environment in this artist-led workshop by Tashkeel. Learn and experience drawing, writing and performance while exploring the scents, sounds, colours and shapes of the Tashkeel Garden with Vikram Divecha.
Together with Divecha, participants will explore Tashkeel’s garden through exercises in drawing, writing and performance that reflect on the self and our environment. The workshop sessions will include a slow, purposeful disengagement from our fast-paced lives through map-drawing, writing and performance, focusing on scents, sounds, colours, shapes and perspectives. Group readings and discussions will take place at the end of the sessions to encourage dialogue and idea-sharing with the group.
Beirut-born, Mumbai-bred, Vikram Divecha is an artist based in Dubai. His practice raises questions about time, value and authorship by engaging people across urban and social spheres, and working with available material and space. Divecha terms this approach as ‘found processes’, which often sees him intervene within public and social systems. Divecha holds an MFA in Visual Art from the prestigious Columbia University. He has exhibited across the world at leading galleries and museums including the Venice Biennale and Louvre Abu Dhabi. Divecha is a graduate of the prestigious Tashkeel Critical Practice Programme and Salama Emerging Artist Fellowship (SEAF) in the UAE.
