What you'll do
Bouldering Phenomenology and Landscape Workshops Participants will employ a haptic approach to experiencing the landscape using bouldering as a discipline and starting point for the course. After an initial introduction and preparatory talk and a demonstration of bouldering practice, participants have a go! And begin an exploration of the ‘haptic’ and the ‘phenomena’ of the unique landscape that makes up the boulder fields of the Ariege, Pyrenees. My workshops offer a re-evaluation of the traditional forms and functions of art in society, by facilitating a development of practice and personal understanding, whether it involves drawing, painting or printmaking, lens-based and time-based media, site-specific installations, or simply the desire to explore the world from an experiential perspective. The workshops will be positioned within contemporary dialogues of visual culture, including concepts such as embodiment, performativity, new geographies and materiality.
Transport to and from the bouldering areas

Andy Whall’s workshops, incorporates bouldering, creativity and a haptic approach to landscape, providing a context to explore bouldering (a form of rock climbing), space and the body. I also offer conventional bouldering guiding and coaching, at a private training facility in the Ariege, France, or out on the rocks, weather permitting at bouldering areas in and around the Ariege, including Laramade and Targassonne. I can guide you to the best problems and even offer the chance to develop new problems, provide crash mats and arrange transport .
