 A WORKSHOP WITH SUSO FANDIÑO. THE LETTERS A - R  - T SPELL ART.

17-25 April 2015

A WORKSHOP WITH SUSO FANDIÑO. THE LETTERS A - R - T SPELL ART.

On our first day of school we are taught to join consonants with vowels. We are taught to interpret, and later on, to associate what we have learned with the world around us. When we open a book, we are able to interpret, page by page, each and every object, image and situation that is needed to recreate the story with no need to have them right there in front of us. What would happen if this operation were reversed? Modern art tells stories based on objects, images and situations. It is a rich and diverse language open to interpretation. From the laboratory proposed by Suso Fandiño we will attempt to delve deep into other ways of communicating, deciphering them through the analysis and practice of the language used.
