The Pasta Workshops
|Author||Sissi; Christian Holstad|
The Pasta Workshops is the brainchild of Christian Holstad and Sissi Daniela Oliveri. Starting from the similarity between modeling clay and kneading fresh pasta, they initiated a workshop at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna (where Sissi teaches the Performing Techniques for the Visual Arts course) with the intention of giving students an experience that would encourage them to explore new approaches and modes of expression that do not conform to traditional techniques. Thus, instead of clay and ceramics, pasta, a raw sculptural material with which to develop new edible art forms, was used. The workshop, extended over three academic years (2020-2022), was also part of the riparAzioni - Re-elaborate to art project, designed by the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna for the PON METRO program, coordinated by the City of Bologna and funded by the European Union.
