‘Maths and Mysticism’, 2014 – Performance /17:22/,
Robert Foster – U.K.
The Оld School Art Residency – STAR RITUALS – 2014
During his time at the Old School Residency, Robert Foster (UK) has been exploring the importance of play in relation to learning, and the way in which new knowledge can have a sense of secrecy and wonder.
By using objects from the school and kindergarten, he has created costumes influenced by mysticism and his childhood memories of dressing up to act as imagined characters. The outfits and props have been used to create a performance, in the form of a ceremony, with ritualistic actions inspired by the varied history of the surrounding area.
