A workspace with tools, material and instructed workshops for body part molding.
Mold a body part of your choice.
Decorate your dried body part.
Enjoy the art-exhibition of body parts in the gallery.
Keep your self-made art or gift it to a friend.
During instructed workshops, we will let Borderlings get in touch with their inner artist and let their creative juices flow.
The focus is body part molding using a plaster casting technique. This way, people are able to mold any kind of body part of their liking, as the method we use for the plaster is very flexible. The imagination is the limit!
As a first step in our set of workshops, we welcome people to come and mold a body part of their choice. After a drying process, we invite the artists back for a second sitting, where they get to decorate the molded parts with a vast selection of decoratives such as paint, pearls, feathers, et.c.
With enough body parts, we will put together a grand art-exhibition in the gallery where we serve wine and hors d'oeuvres as artists and viewers mingle around.
It is then up to the artist to keep the artpiece or perhaps gift it to a friend. Maybe put it up for auction?
With this dream, we hope to bring playful creativity in a relaxed environment to The Borderland.
An artsy crew with professional backgrounds in several art-platforms (including body molding). Both experienced burners and newcomers are present in the team.
Members so far:
We have a very good understanding of what to buy (and how much) as we have people in the group who have done this before (see our dream-picture).
As far as our time-planning goes, we need to buy material in bulk which we will start doing as soon as we have a somewhat secured funding.
On-spot we will need a day or two to set up our workspace. After that we aim to have one or two workshops each day until we run out of supplies.
We will de-moop constantly and make sure to sort all the moop according to recylcing standards. At the end of the burn, we will dispose of all our moop in the corresponding recyling stations.
With past experience and test methods, we have found out that translucent moop-bags and huge MOOP-signs (sorted according to moop-type) seem to work much better than non-translucent moop-bags and small signs. We will make sure that all the moop in our area gets inside a moop-bag before it even has the chance to hit the ground. As our workshops can get a bit messy, we will give our moop-system a lot of love. Simple and logistic system, pre-manufactured moop-bins, huge and easy-to-understand moop-signs.
Chairs: 1100 DKK
Tables: 800 DKK
Moop-system: 600 DKK
Gallery-housing: 1800 DKK
Electrics: 900 DKK
Workshop material: 3800 DKK
We will cut the amount of chairs, tables, workshop material and construction material for the housing if we only get the minimum budget level granted.
We welcome anyone interested to join for workshops. As an instructor or as a workshop-attendee. If you are interested in creating this dream with us, we welcome you with our open hearts!
Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
