Collider

 

Collider:

Une proposition de Katia Yezli et Julie Curtiss

avec la contribution d'Iris Touliatou


Collider est un workshop ou laboratoire expérimentale croisant différentes approches artistiques et processus de création, qui au cours d'une semaine devient tour à tour un carrefour d'idées, un lieu de réflexion, de débats, un espace de collaboration, de production, et enfin d'exposition.


Le croisement des multiples processus et diverses interventions sont rendus visibles sur un mur de références servant de "wall posting" collectif et devient au cours du workshop une carte mentale "in progress" ou"mindmap". Les éléments peuvent bouger, se croiser, se superposer. Il est possible de faire des connexions ou apporter des éléments nouveaux... Une structure modulable, aux multiples usages, sert notamment de table ronde, de plan de travail individuel ou collectif, élément scénographique...


Participants:

Winter Story (plasticiens, architectes, musiciens, performeurs...), vMM/various Material Management (danseurs, musiciens, plasticiens). Donald Abad, Gwenola Wagon, Phillipe Baudelocque. Interventions ponctuelles d'artistes résidents à la Générale, et autres membres du public.

Curators: Katia Yezli and Julie Curtiss


Collider is an intensive experimental workshop attempting to explore the creative process and what lies behind it.


It started with a virtual catalogue - Winter Catalogue, which is detailed in the main blog and has shifted its focus onto the process rather than the "final object" - in collaboration and across different practices that include visual artists, performers, musicians, architects and writers.


The programme includes conferences, lectures, debates, meditation, free writing, performances, and ends with a show.


A wall with multiple references - a kind of collective mental map - becomes a visual representation of the ongoing exchanges that took place beforehand and throughout the workshop. At the same time it is a wall posting for all involved and a mind mapping tool through which unexpected connections can emerge.


The project also includes an ad hoc scenographic structure, designed by Iris Touliatou, which, depending on the situation, becomes a round table for a discussion, a working desk, a box to put things away, or even an impromptu prop for performers to play with.
