Exploring the Dialogue between Chillida and Heidegger

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 Delaunaycollaging and tribal art.

Looking forward to share my passion with you!

Creative Rendezvous: Discovering Eduardo Chillida | March 18, 2018

On March 11th I’ve started the Creative Rendezvous series. The first event was dedicated to the links between the inner necessity, impressions that music evokes in us and visualizations of those in line with the Wassily Kandinsky Synthesis of Arts.

This upcoming Sunday, March 18th we will dive into exciting and mesmerizing world of Eduardo Chillida, a Spanish Basque sculptor notable for his monumental abstract works.

Chillida (1924 – 2002), known for his massive and abstract sculptures that concentrated around the human form, actually preferred to be called a “realist sculptor”. There is a lot of movement and tension in his work and we will look into his sketches and graphic work, that often became the prototypes of his sculptures. He was a great master of using both, the positive and negative space. We will do some exercises that tap into technique Chillida often used as a step towards making 3D sculptures.

We will talk about the dialogue Chillida was engaged with Heidegger, a prominent German philosopher, about Art and Space. What is the relationship between emptiness and space and how sculpture is ’embodiment of places’.

And of course, we will explore his works and way of thinking in a more practical way!

Looking forward to challenge your notion of space this Sunday! Join the fun! Find your ticket here.

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!

 

Creative Rendezvous with Kandinsky on March 11, 2018

The Creative Spring of 2018 started out this past Sunday with the workshop on Wassily Kandinsky, where we talked about his very interesting performances: “Pictures from an Exhibition” and “Yellow Sound”. We talked briefly about his theoretical approach to arts and his Synthesis of Arts ideas.

It was a great pleasure to host the event in such a nice company! Here are some photos from the workshop and hope to see you this Sunday, March 18th, when we will be diving into the intriguing world of the Basque abstract sculptor, Eduardo Chillida. Grab your ticket here!

Creative Rendezvous with Kandinsky

This Sunday, March 11, 12.00-15.00 I’m hosting a Creative Rendezvous session where we will be discovering fascinating world of Wassily Kandinsky.

Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter, graphic artist and art theorist. It would not be an underestimated statement to call him the Father of abstract modern art. During the workshop I will concentrate on a few aspects of his creative process. Besides his work in visual arts, he had a passion for music, poetry and theater. He himself played the piano and the cello, wrote verses and scripts.

We will look into some of his work where he connected visual and audio modes, we will discuss the process of seeing sounds, the synesthesia. We will talk about his work with Schoenberg. We will see some bits of the Kandinsky’s performance Pictures at an Exhibition – a music piece by Mussorgsky, which was created under a strong impression of the Viktor Hartmann’s exhibition. This constant dialogue between the different artistic domains is what interests me the most. This inner connection and cross-inspiration. That is what I would like to explore more during the workshop. As the culmination of this, we will touch upon Kandinsky’s Synthesis of Arts and performance The Yellow Sound.

After this introduction I will propose a few exercises where we will be interpreting different sounds and music using our own impressions, envisioned colors and forms.

Really looking forward to bring in the music and colors together with you in some kind of unity and boosting your creative energy this spring!

Warm welcome!

Let The Creative Spring Begin!

This spring I’m inviting you to revitalize yourself in a creative and artistic way. During the series of 2-3 hour workshops you will be able to create your own art and no previous experience is needed for it.

I have selected three different artists who fascinate me personally, but also allow plenty of room for exploration, imagination, experimentation and taking creative risks.

We will explore the works, main guiding principles and different techniques, such as contrasting, paper cut-outs, collaging and relating color and form to music, from the following artists: Eduardo Chillida, Sonia Delaunay and Wassily Kandinsky.

I will offer a short introduction, some images for inspiration and simple exercises that will allow you to create your own masterpiece! And of course, tea, coffee and light snacks 🙂

We will start with exploring the pioneer of the modern abstract art, Wasilly Kandinsky on March 11th, continue with introduction to Basque sculptor, Eduardo Chillida on March 18th, spice up with wild colors by Sonia Delaunay on March 25th, play around with images and forms during collaging session on April 1st and dive into the tribal patterns on April 8th.

All sessions start at 12.00 at our new creative space – Rhizom Gallery
Bregnerødgade 10, 2200, Copenhagen

You can find the full schedule and book your tickets here.

And here is a special treat – 50% off any session with the code: CREATIVESPRING-2018 – so either, bring a friend or book two sessions for the price of one! I’m looking forward to seeing you and being creative together!

Warm welcome!

Creative Rendezvous workshops – Spring 2018

Happy to announce the new series of Creative Rendezvous workshops this spring. Will be looking forward to seeing you and being creative together!

Indulge your inner artist

These 2-3 hour workshops are designed to serve as a window into a different reality, a few hours just for yourself, away from usual stress, uncertainties, routines and give you an opportunity to zoom out, to do something different or something long forgotten, but enjoyable and invigorating.

We will experiment with color, create our own tribal patterns, explore positive and negative spaces, make collages, encode music in visual forms, etc. We will make art like Wassily Kandinsky, Eduardo Chillida and Sonia Delaunay among others.

I would like to offer you:

  • time to get together with your inner creative and a few other like minded people and do something fun and inspiring
  • time to discover some of your hidden talents, get in touch with your inner Kandinsky or maybe Hemingway..
  • time to get into the creative flow and extend the present moment
  • time to take a break, breathe, be with yourself and dissolve in your dreams and then continue with new energy and focus

Creative Rendezvous is the time for you!

It is the time to create and discover!

These workshops are a wild mix of art-history, making art, mindfulness techniques, theories and approaches of positive psychology, personality psychology and creativity development.

The next scheduled session you can see in the bottom of the page – in the Eventbrite schedule. Please register in good time – places are limited: maximum 10 participants.

All materials are provided. No previous knowledge in any of the techniques or mediums is needed.

Tea, coffee and snack is offered during the workshop.

Workshops will be held at our new creative space, at Rhizom Gallery at Bregnerødgade 10, Copenhagen, Denmark 2200
