The Onion: an artist’s toolkit of the Performance Lab 

We would like to share with you some updates on the Performance Lab, hosted by the Pierides Foundation! The participants attended the workshop “The Onion: an artist’s tool kit” by Lia Haraki. Creation is usually the development/construction of an idea towards an end result. In the workshop participants are given a different perspective to the creative process as a process of undoing rather than doing, by removing the unnecessary, so that the outcome can be revealed rather than developed. By using the onion peeling both as a metaphor and as a practice, the participants are guided to ‘peel off ‘ unnecessary layers that keep the artwork hidden and locked.
