Drawing Research Residency

Presented in partnership between L’AiR ARTS at FIAP PARIS and DRAWinternational, Caylus, France

The invisible realm of possibility 

Two-part residency program:
Part I - Creative Practice in a medieval town of Caylus
Part II - Contextual Research and Exhibition in Paris
Application deadline: January 4, 2019

The project will focus upon notions of intention and the physical act of drawing as it arrives as a vectorial force on a material surface. One could say, an infrastructure from where other possibilities collide, from common habitual behaviours toward the realm of the unknown. 

A conscious reflective engagement with the world felt through our our skin, flesh and bones is a spatial process of perception directed upon an environment of mass, volume and depth. A world encountered by the whole human interactive corporeal sensorium through which we become inexorably a part. As such, there can be no gap between biology and society as we move in and around the world, finding out that we are made of the same fundamental stuff as everything else. From this perspective our bodies are situated ecologically, in a role which is not simply ‘subjective’ but social and of nature itself. It is a body for others as it exists in its tension between agencies of power and systems of resistance, what is and what is in the becoming. 

To trust oneself and to be honest in a creative act, which takes cognisance of the world around can only help foster an initial space of meaningful conscious engagement. A continued focus and sense of purpose, with a loss of self, can only lead to a cyclical state of pre-reflective awareness. It is the doors of realisation and insight that resides in the depths of a primordial, intercorporeal, ‘chiasmic’ intertwining of truths, a radical space to be. 

As David Abram has stated:

. .. meaning sprouts in the very depths of the sensory world, in the heat of meeting, encounter, participation. (Abram, 1997,p75)

© Edited from ‘Choreography of Drawing: The consciousness of the body in the space of a drawing’ John McNorton, PhD Royal College of Art, 2003.

1968-2018 Let's dear ! (to propose)

Since the world is made this way, our dreams must be even more tenacious.

Abdellatif Laâbi

 

The Festival Les Instants Vidéo is an event dedicated to video art and electronic poetry with its multiple forms, monobands, installations, performances, multimedia…

In France, and not only as the events were global, the year 2018 will see here and there thrilling or pathetic celebrations of the lovely month of May 1968.

In our case, the poetic and emancipatory vibe of the hundred thousand flowers of May continue to stimulate delightfully our imagination. And our nostalgia is only for the future.

 

We have the dream of a spring which will make us see May 1968 (events) as a poor rehearsal of the great international upheaval to come:

Culture will not anymore be the rattle of the privileged few in desperate search of thrills.

Sexual deprivation, scrupulously planned by the coalition of the religious, the States and the traders of erotic-romantic dreams imitating the dominant/dominated relationships spread by the culture and leisure industry, will just be an old nightmare converted into a richness of consensual and shared pleasures.

Work released from the class struggle, will be an endless source of imaginative fulfilment.

Global warming cultivated by the veneration of technocratic progress and the growth for the Growth, will be changed into a warming of human relationships and a poetic and passionate disruption of the senses.

The organised crime against migrants will be replaced by a natural hospitality for newcomers, and will celebrate melting pots resulting from joyful and multicoloured close-combats.

Palestine will be free, with the only mission to be the peace adviser for the word’s last belligerents corrupted by war-mongering stupidity or the cult of virility.

No-one will have to knee down anymore, apart to pick four-leaf clovers or to pull the petals from a daisy.

And above all: etc. etc. etc.

 

 

Artists of the world unite! To make the 31st edition of the festival a celebration of our indomitable imaginations. Let’s believe in our very intimate utopias as the realities longing to flourish in our garden. Video art is the poetic flower to brandish in front of the blind eyes of dream-breakers. Let’s make the Festival 2018 a general assembly of works and artists non-aligned on the market criteria, and looking to a shining future.
