Visual Poetry Laboratory

Start - 25 September, 2021

ABOUT THE LAB

The CORE TOPICS

We are developing the themes the participants choose themselves, working on their life stories, their experiences, their dreams. The goal is to uncover each participant’s unique voice, strengthen visual languages, uncover their feelings on chosen theme and present it through art. The participants choose the themes and topics by themselves.

 

REQUIREMENTS

First, participants send us their portfolios, and at the first group meeting we discuss all submitted projects, discuss what participants are planning to work on. We choose the theme for each participant at the first group meeting.

 

The STRUCTURE

There will be presentations on modern photography and art, discussions about work of leading artists of modernity. There also will be discussions on approaches, and different ways to work with photography and other media. There also will be lectures by invited artists.

The OUTPUT:

Zine + online publication at friendly resources (festivals, magazines, etc.)

 

The FEEDBACK:

The participants get actual feedback on the material they present as well as they get the feedback on creative process. The goal of the tutors is to encourage artists to develop their unique styles in art, help to overcome burnouts, ups and downs and other obstacles that may occur during developing a project. There also will be useful tips regarding work with curators, galleries, festivals and the market.

 

THE COSTS:

200 EUR per participant. 20 EUR per session. There is also a possibility to pay partly. Like 2 lessons/4 lessons/ etc. Payment methods are: Paypal or VISA. The discounts are also discussible

KATKA PRAČKOVÁ | KATARÍNA BEŇADIK

“As an artist, I am interested in exploring the mystery that lies between what the eye sees and what lies hidden from it at a given point in time. I am not looking for answers: I prefer provoking questions, as I find the experience itself to be most important.”

“My photographs, in addition to my studio work, are a visual diary. In a portrait I look for timelessness, that perspective when a person is what he was “always”, in the truest sense of the word. Yesterday, today and tomorrow."

MIKHAIL KIRILIN

I practice fractal art as a part of my research in philosophy and alternative spirituality. The imagery i produce is a result of transformation of semantic cores into visualized abstract art.  By doing this, I am able to present concepts and ideas, as well as feelings and senses that i see valuable. I am interested in cyber art and relations between human and the AI.

I work with the idea of “Spiritual Photography”, where relations between Human and Nature are important the most. Also, I am looking for similarities between different spiritual and religious traditions and through my work am trying to show the universality of light as a medium between Human and God.
