The power of the unit

This two-day course focuses on the iconic element of the UNIT in art by exploring the potential of assembling a multitude of single elements from a conceptual and a practical point of view.

Over the course of the two days, the participants will first examine and discuss various examples of unit-based practices in art making, from classic art, to modern and contemporary art. They will then craft their own unit of choice by engaging with a multitude of materials and by identifying the technique–or mixed techniques–to connect the units together to occupy space and give form to creativity.

The course is open to all art enthusiasts who want to try to break down the traditional idea of medium in art by creating their own working unit and, from that point, start exploring how multiple units behave together while in flexible or rigid structures, bi-dimensional or multi-dimensional spaces.

This experimental course is for participants who are not afraid to start small and then grow as far as available time, materials, chosen techniques, and creativity will allow.

One important point for all interested participants: there is a strong element of improvisation intrinsic to this course, make sure you are open and excited by that!

The course will be taught in English.
