During the Creative Rendezvous workshop on March 18th, 2018, where we were discovering the abstract and monumental works of the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida, we were also looking into his dialogue with Martin Heidegger.
We tried to practically feel and experience how is it to be a sculptor and a sculpture. We looked into how sculpture teaches us what it means to be in world, when “the limit marks the beginning of the thing, not its end. Things begin at their limits for it is here that they enter into relationships with the rest of the world.”
We talked about how emptiness is no nothingness, but rather it is capable of accepting content. And how we attribute meaning to spaces and they become places and how chronotope plays a role in this process.
We also talked about the difference between perception and experience, how the first one is rooted in present and goes into the future and the other one is in the present, but rooted in the past.
Sending my greetings to all the participants, who also were sculptors and agreeable clay during this workshop! Looking forward to seeing you next time!
During the next Sundays you’re more than welcome to join the Creative Rendezvous about Sonia Delaunay, collaging and tribal art.
Looking forward to share my passion with you!
