Object Agency is a new project by Maurice Andresen, exploring animism, the attribution of spirits and souls to inanimate objects, and its relevance in the 21st century. This is the first stage of Object Agency.

Blurring the lines between performance and workshop, Object Agency: Workshop will encourage participants to engage with urban debris, objects sourced across Glasgow, to find new appreciation in the beauty of the urban environment.

Remnants of construction sites and other found objects will be ritualistically cleansed to then be embellished and reimagined as spiritual ephemera, opening a gateway to the animistic spirits that reside in everything around us.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 22.11.18 6-7pm as well as Friday 23.11.18 5-6pm. Friday’s Workshop will be followed by an exhibition of the statues created as well as new animated works by Maurice Andresen.
