SPACE – COLOUR – SCALE : INSTALLATION – BETWEEN SCULPTURE AND TEXTILE ART
2° Course: JULY 18 - 30, 2017
Daniela Krystyna Jałkiewicz (PL) - textile artist, sculptor and set designer
The aim of the course is to create large objects – artistic installations which border
on the fields of sculpture and textile art. A TEXTILE – a knot, an interlace, made of materials not typical for the technique, may serve as a linking and construction element of the created spatial composition – a SCULPTURE.
The created one- and multi-element objects will be located inside the Łódź Academy
or in plein-air, in the park surrounding its buildings. The scale of the objects will depend
on the chosen localisation.
Participants will be able to use materials available at the academy: 8m, 6m, 4m, 2m-long rods and pipes, metal wires of different thickness and level of elasticity, soft wires – flexible, lacquer sprays, coconut mats, etc. There will be also a possibility to use participants’ own, experimental materials.
The starting point for all projects will be an idea, a concept which will evolve while participants work and discover the possibilities and limitations of their material. The course is addressed to students, professional and non-professional artists who wish to try their hand at large format works, face the difficulties connected with the technical aspects and the unrelenting force of gravity and who want to test their own persistency, creative potential, courage and willingness to take risks (a ‘beautiful disaster’ is also a precious experience). Participants will be provided with artistic supervision and help in solving technical problems. It is assumed that the works created during the course will be characterised by high artistic quality, and at the same time will be experiments which will bring new experience and new creative possibilities.
