Next up on the cards for Makeshift is ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival, which takes place in Kuopio, Finland, in less than a month!! We’re presenting a new version of our work Making Time, devised as part of p4pilot in 2010, with Performance Space/Perth Institute for Contemporary Art. Fellow live artist extraordinaire Sarah Rodigari has joined the Makeshift team for this exciting caper.

ANTI Contemporary Live Art Festival, Kuopio, Finland
25-30 Sept, 2012
Making Time is an unfolding exercise in redirective practice, beginning with the crafts of pickling, jam making, bottling and otherwise preserving food. Participants are invited to share strategies for preserving a variety of native or backyard surplus foods. In exchange, the artist will provide micro-seminars on key concepts relating to design futures. At the conclusion of each session, those present will collectively decide upon a title with which to label their filled jars, a miniature poetic manifesto indicating both conversational and material contents. All jars will be collected by participants (and given away to passers-by) at a market stall at the end of the festival.
There are 6 preserving sessions, and you can either come and teach your specific recipe or technique to others, or come and learn from others. The festival provides the ingredients used. The working language is English.
