22 - 23 July 2015 - 11:00h a 19:00h

con_textos @June Crespo @Elena Aitzkoa. Bulk and text

Practical workshop in which we will work on the idea of edition through proposals linked with the sculptural and poetic practice of Elena Aitzkoa and June Crespo.

We will glide through the impropriety of languages steering the force of desire so as to penetrate the limits of form. Mainly text and sculptural bulk, in both directions and halting at the crossings. Appreciating the moment when the image begins to shape and decide what it wants to be objectified as.

We’d like to be able to share material you all bring and take it to another point in the dimensionality of the space. Folding it, unfolding it, spreading it out, disseminating it, squeezing it...

*Participants will have to bring books, magazines and some object they’re interested in or whose shape or contents they are drawn by. Should there be people who work at writing it’d be appreciated if they could bring texts of their own.
