KNOL’s Jorien is invited by the curators of Starting Something to fly to China during Beijing Design week and give a masterclass at students of CAFA , the biggest art academy in China. The work she and the students made on site is shown in a marvellous vacant building at the 751 district, an enormous abandoned industrialarea now starting to develop into a creative neighborhood. Starting Something is an exhibition that features the work of various dutch artists and designers. CAFA students also showcase work, inspired by each of the dutch projects.
The masterclass and exhibition are based on the project SKINNED. Students are given liquid latex to make all sorts of samples in the surrounding area and to explore the way of capturing texture and ‘memory’ in a latex skin.
