Locating The Precious – 25 – 31 August 2019
Lin Cheung was invited to give a workshop at Boisbuchet. ‘Locating The Precious’ invited participants to freely explore ideas concerning preciousness and where that might be located by responding to the immediate environment and using readily available materials.
For over 25 years, CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Education Culturelle et Agricole), the non-profit organisation running Boisbuchet’s program, organises interdisciplinary workshops. Participants from all over the world live and work here together with noted designers, architects, and artists – not to come up with perfect results, but to gain insights into the creative process and the challenges involved.
