“Raising the indecision up to give it political dignity. Finding a balance between it and the power. Considering the lack of organisation as a vital principle, by which every organisation is passed through by the flashes of life.” Gilles Clément Manifesto to the Third landscape (2005)
The secular park of Villa Corniolo is divided into two areas, the front is a bright garden, with cut meadows, hedges of roses and citrus plants, while behind the villa the forest grows more wild, shady, with spontaneous herbs, and bamboo reeds, too.
What happens in these places? How do they reveal themselves to our eyes, what are the characteristics that predispose order and chaos? What are the perceptual and compositional differences of two places that cross one another while remaining so distinct?
During the workshop we will immerse in a almost “meditative” observation of the animal and vegetable life that inhabits the park, the shapes, colors and light of these places, and then we will reproduce them on the map drawing on plain air, preparing the appropriate colours and experimenting with techniques suitable for the two different environments.
The afternoon of the third day will be open to external guests who can see the materials elaborated during the seminar, converse with the group and eat together.
The number of participants is max. 10. This residency is a community experience.
Meals are prepared and eaten together.
Accommodation is in shared rooms (two triples and one double).
Bathrooms are shared. Single rooms are not provided.
The drawing tools are borne by the participant. The list of the required will be communicated after registration.
