DYNAMIC PATHS: THE IDEA OF TRANSIT IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF IMAGES
6, 13, 20 and 27 February, 2016
In his text "What Children Say", Deleuze proposes the concept of an art-cartography, according to which there is always a trajectory, real or imaginary, in the work of art: "A map of virtualities (that) is superimposed on the real map whose paths it transforms". Thus, every work is itself a journey in which the path is confused with the subjectivity of those who travel it.
Based on this idea of art as a journey, this theoretical-practical workshop proposes a series of texts and exercises that allow participants to reflect on and experiment with the idea of transit in the creation of images.
Using various strategies of representation, signification and symbolisation, the participant will relate to the space and appropriate it in a personal way, in order to draw a kind of intimate and emotional cartography in which the experience of the real journey is mixed and transformed from an imaginary journey.
