During his 3 weeks residency course Poul worked around the theme of kitsch, and how it is developed in the contemporary art scene. Poul created a 10 day workshop series in order to develop his idea of art which is made for the elite and the art made for the mass. The workshop was a great opportunity for the public to get hands on and learn how to use the clay but its main reason was the production of the final outcome.
