Composing time and space.
Book art, transformable creation, artistic collection.
A° Course: July 23 – August 6, 2015

Prof. Danuta Wieczorek - Head of the Basic Composition Studio 1
Assistant: Joanna Paljocha, MA

Participants of the course may be students or graduates of art academies, or non-professional artists. They will work in any of the traditional techniques (drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, collage, origami, miniature sculpture, etc.) or in a digital technique. It will be also possible to use other means within the range of visual actions. The aim of the programme is to develop participants’ consciousness, intuition and creative experience.
Each participant will compose at least two works different in terms of spatiotemporal structure but remaining in accordance with the author’s individuality. Both works will change their appearance while observed by the viewer.

  1. A book composed of parts which will be discovered successively according to the order established by the author. Composing the time of viewing the work.
  2. A work capable of adopting various characteristic appearances. Use of articulated joints. Composing changes in location of elements in space
  3. A collection of loose, physically unconnected objects. Composing formal and content relations between elements in a manner which allows the work to gain more value than the sum of its elements.
Second and third structure will be of choice

The idea of the course is based on the unique teaching programme of the Basic Composition Studio I at the Faculty of Graphics and Painting of the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts Łódź. It is the only place in the world where for a long time the issues such as a collection of loose objects as a work of art have been studied. This method of teaching composition, which derives from the spirit of constructivism, structuralism and holism, was devised by Professor Andrzej Łobodziński. It shows the necessity of taking purposeful actions during the creative process. It emphasizes the equal value of the rational factor and intuition.
