Move your body in response to the interactive work of sculpture Alter in this drop-in workshop led by the artists behind it.

Over the course of this drop-in workshop, the artists invite you to engage in creative activities responding to the motion element of the installation, exploring movement as a metaphor for displacement and as an avenue for artistic expression.

Alter has been co-commissioned by the Southbank Centre and Counterpoints Arts for the Southbank Centre’s public spaces during Refugee Week 2022.

The work consists of seven interactive, movable sculptures featuring light and sound. As the sculptures are manoeuvred by both performers and the audience, the space of the Southbank Centre is permeated with traces of sound and colour, representing stories of migration.

The piece is created by Paria Moazemi Goodarzi and Francisco Llinas Casas, and was inspired by the rich history of the Southbank Centre and notions of refuge and displacement.
