Main interests and concerns:
Transformation. Growth, ruin. Focus on Process
Art as Nature.
Venice Biennale. Herman de Vries
Seeds. Plants, flowers, fruits. Weeds. Crops
Ecology. Botanic research, origin of cultivated plants, eating habits.
The Ephemeral. Biological materials tend to have an ephemeral nature. Documentation of process time-based art. Presence, re-presentation in video. Dislocations.
Activating the viewer.
Changing hierarchy – beyond contemplation. Recognize there in no passive contemplating.
How the viewer appropriates the artwork
Object as a catalyzer of interaction
An invitation to reflect based upon a physical experience.
The invisible contract between the Artist and the Beholder
Where does the artwork belong? Public spaces vs. Private spaces
Gallery space. Different place, different meaning.
Space as a tool. Potential for change?
Performing the City: Workshop on strategies of resistance.
One Place After Another, Miwon Kwon.
Public art “domesticated”. Discursive site-specificity.
The Smooth and the Striated space. Nomadic Behaviours.
