[EN] Emilio Fantin will give a workshop in the context of Performing Documentation starting from these questions:
How can we switch from an idea of documentation to a creative process which improves our artistic activity?
How can we give continuity to our process of generating the aesthetic, thinking and the imaginary?
Is a CV, that gathers formal and schematic displaying of facts, sufficient to communicate what our perspectives, purposes and sensibilities are?
In the age of hyper-documentation the paradox of a no-documentation might arise and nourish new imaginations.
This workshop is organised by Shervin Kianersi Haghighi, LUCA School of arts and nadine vzw and is closely linked to the doctoral research of Shervin Kianersi Haghighi which investigates the relationship between documentation and its users, and attempts to answer how we can activate (and create) senses other than visual in performance art. It proposes to re-think the notation and documentation of performances, no longer merely as a confirmation of them, but as new source material that gives the audience the opportunity to go somewhere else, to move away from the original action or performance and explore its unpredictable side effects.
Emilio Fantin is an artist working on dematerialization of art as his individual research and on the concept of organism in collective experiences.
He led the “Dynamica” project, a nomadic research group working on the relationship between
different fields of knowledge. Right now he is working on a multidisciplinary research project which studies the relationships between art and agriculture, art and mathematical logic, art and dreams, and art and architecture. He has participated in major contemporary art events (Venice Biennale; Performa 07; Le Magazine; Neue Galerie; Documenta XIII). Since 2005 he is a professor of Contemporary Art at the Department of Architecture of the Milan Polytechnic. He also co-founded the Lu Cafausu project and the Fondazione Lac o le Mon (San Cesario di Lecce, Apulia) for artistic research. He lives and works in Bologna.
