Sunday 12th June, 4:00 - 5.30pm

In response to Peng Zuqiang's solo exhibition at Cell Project Space, artist duo Ghost and John will present their new workshop Stories Under My Skin. In the exhibition space, Ghost and John will lead an intimate group in an exploration of personal histories and physical memories. Considering the somatic resonance between bodies and spaces, they will use drawing and movement to reflect on the scores our bodies keep as we navigate the (post)-pandemic cityscape. The gallery will be closed during the event. 
Please wear comfortable clothing and be ready to participate in movement exercises and activities involving physical touch between participants. To keep everyone safe, if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive, please stay at home and do not attend the workshop.
