Meet & Make Online: Chimera Collages
You will need: scissors, glue and magazines you don’t mind cutting up. Join one of our BALTIC Freelance Artist team, Mat Fleming, for a Meet & Make Online workshop. Mat's 15-minute session is inspired by BALTIC's current group exhibition Animalesque and focuses on ‘chimeras’, linking particularly to Paloma Varga Weisz’s Kampfhund and Lazlo’s Dream; Tupilakosaurus by Pia Arke with Anders Jorgerson; and the Untitled wall installation by Mary Beth Edelson.
Abel Rodríguez: BALTIC exhibition
Abel Rodríguez (Mogaje Guihu) is an elder from the Nonuya ethnic group, native to the Cahuinarí river in the Colombian Amazon. Rodríguez’s work is grounded in his ancestral knowledge of the indigenous plants of the region, which was passed to him by his uncle. As a way to preserve his knowledge and memory of his region, Rodríguez creates detailed paintings and drawings that depict the ecosystem of the rainforest in the Nonuya region with intricate details of the flora and fauna.
