Drawing Workshops Think Tank lab Triennale 2015-16
As the main subject of artistic workshop performed during Drawing Triennale we established the motive of Utopia interweaving it with the motive of a Garden. Utopia is considered both as a real place open for political and social changes, as well as symbolic, imagined space, an enclave full of spiritual freedom. The wish to create a perfect cosmos in which you can experience a full of existence is often explained by the desire to return to the Eden. The motive of Utopia became interesting for many generations of artists, who have been consequently realizing postulate of the art autonomy. They highlighted a strength inside the art to perform real changes. It’s also worth to look at Utopia from the side of entomology. The word ‘Utopia’ comes from greek “outopos”, which in literal translation means a “not-place” or “place that does not exist”. That leads us to the conclusion that utopia is something typical, some kind of archetype of the unfulfilled reality, a target of human being. This area of artistic activity is especially interesting, it matches reality with imagination. It fuses multiple universes, and it makes it a perfect medium for realisation different kind of utopias.
