Supergraphic Warehouse, a new alternative project space, will be presenting The Radical Repair Workshop on February 13th from 6pm - 8:30pm. Supergraphic Warehouse is located at unit 2220L in the Ample Storage facility at 2240 Dominion Street in Durham. The Radical Repair Workshop is a pop-up art experience housed inside a 1966 Frolic camper. The project encourages participants and viewers to consider their relationship to mending, sentimental objects, single-use items, and radical (potentially non-functional) modes of repair. Inside the camper you’ll find an art studio, a gallery of repaired items, and space for hands-on workshops. Items that have been donated by the public or scavenged by sculptor Julia Gartrell are taken in, assessed, and “repaired” in a manner aligning to their history. The “repairs” these items undergo may be technically non-functional or “productive” but they relate to a sculptural investigation of the object’s story, level of decay, and psychic/emotional energy. The approach to mending will be non-traditional—the item may not actually be “fixed,” but it will be transformed into a permanent art object, thus realigning our relationship to its “value.” The repaired items join the archive of the Radical Repair Workshop, along with their story, to be shared with future audiences along the journey of the project. Julia is interested in an anti-capitalist approach to the art object, and hopes that the Radical Repair Workshop encourages participants to accept “failure” as an actual form of success (as described by Judith Halberstam in The Queer Art of Failure). The repairs will take cues from Gartrell’s research into the creativity cultivated when resources are limited, such as in models of creative reuse and the escape of functional fixedness found in the face of scarcity. Modes of mending will vary depending on the item, but the Radical Repair Workshop is stocked with both traditional and non-traditional mending supplies ranging from string, tape, glue, and hardware to clay, dust, organic materials, and psychic energy. Results may be fleeting, ephemeral, or more permanent in nature, depending on the item being “repaired.”

Where to buy linoleum

The best place to buy linoleum is Dick Blick. Choose from a variety of pre-cut sizes or by the role. Battleship Gray is best.
