Summer atelier

 Le Chapitre, Lure 04. – 18. 08. 2019

The summer studio offers a 14-day working stay for artists and practising laymen. The atelier will not be about learning a particular technique or craft but will be opens up other, challenging and original  ways of working. The most varied forms of artistic expression, for example poetry, music, painting, etc., can work together to illuminate and enhance one another or even form a new content all together.

The focus is on the description of a fact and how it can be communicated. This message or messages are in a double dialogue. In the process of design, the artist reflects by creating a dialogue with the audience or the art observer. The contents of the communication are based on ideas, in-depth thinking, beliefs and individual perspectives. Expressiveness is one of the challenges. In the design bridges are built, in one self, as well as outwardly for the anonymous world. The integration of both dimensions is the ongoing adventure of the genesis of the work.

The open summer studio offers a forum for exchange, mutual inspiration, the transfer of thoughts, conversations and intense awareness. Cooperation, collaboration and new forms of designs can be tested. In addition to the above, one can relax, get inspiration be recuperated in a serene space.
