Meet the artists behind Alter, a work of interactive sculpture produced for Refugee Week, and collaborate to create sculptural objects responding to their work.

The workshop gives you a chance to learn more about the work of Paria Moazemi Goodarzi and Francisco Llinas Casas, and to build on what they’ve produced.

The artists want help from people of all ages and abilities to create collaborative sculptural objects in response to migrant labour and their own pieces, using simple materials and techniques.

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.
