Visual artist Kensuke Koike leads Big Shot: an analog photography manipulation workshop, where participants will be invited to edit and superimpose different pieces of the same image to create a new one with absurd and paradoxical features.
Kensuke Koike's practice, in fact, consists in creating new versions of existing photographs, through simple manipulations that subvert the meaning and flatter the observer’s gaze.
Minimum age 6 years.
