GALI WEISS | IMAGE-TEXT RELATIONSHIPS
This workshop will be experimental and collaborative: participants will be working with an approach that is explorative and evolving, individual and collective.
SESSION 1 23 November, 10am-4pm
This session will focus on creating small concertina artists’ books using printmaking or any other method, taking into account an edition of 3. The content of the concertinas will be based on their current practice interests, and in this session they will work at creating a visual narrative based on associations of images that suit the format of a concertina fold.
SESSION 2 24 November, 10am - 4pm
In this session participants will be experimenting with printed and handwritten texts in relationship with the concertina imagery – their own imagery as a start, but predominantly in imagery exchanged with other participants. Conceptually, this approach is about multiplicity of perspectives in a unified outcome. The concertina acts as a space on which two artists meet through their work, while the outcome presents another tier of meaning.
During these sessions participants will ponder the questions: How do textual and visual expressions interact? How does text form meaning through its visuality, that is, text as image? What is the power of text and the power of imagery? How can text and image work as associations and metaphors rather than as illustration? And more, as arising from individual and collective experiences in the workshop.
Suitable for more experienced artists or visual art students.
