As part of the project ‘TAKE DADA SERIOUSLY! IT’S WORTH IT?’, Decorating Dissidence supported weaver Sara Kelly to deliver two online weaving workshops with participants aged 15-25 to give them the chance to develop practical skills and to connect during the pandemic.
“I am inspired by Dada and the hugely diverse movement that encouraged a whole range of diverse art mediums from performance art to collage. Dada honed ideas from the conceptual Art movement, where the focus was less on creating a final beautiful product but more about generating questions about society and the purpose of art and its process which I find fascinating. I am inspired by the way in which the Dada movement went against all norms of traditional art production, and to challenge societal norms within the artistic process.”
