The Fold: making of
Artists in dialogue
Proyecto´ace has been invited as one of the participating centres for the international project EL PLIEGO / doble desdoblado, the 3rd Project of creation and international exchange between universities and educational centres in the graphic arts and international edition, organised by the Grupo dx5 of the Universidad de Vigo in Pontevedra, Spain in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and the Arts, University of Quebec in Canada.
This project aims to continue the promotion of cultural movement across borders that printmaking allows (such as multiplication, versatility and transportability), revaluing the book format from its base module: the fold.
Artists, teachers and art students participate in a project that aims to reflect on the idea of the fold, taking the space of a sheet as the starting point and the encounter that these fold causes.
COLLABORATIVE WORK (by Adriana Moracci)
What is The Fold and how to approach and shape not only an image, but a concept that called Proyecto ´ace to be part of an International Project.
During intense days of work and reflection, 19 artists were selected to work collaboratively in the ´ace workshop, creating editions of the works that made up what was sent.
The themes that were developed from the simple and profound idea of The Fold were enriched and shaped by the most varied visions in this regard. Thus, the specification referring to the body, the identity, the memory, the absence, the infinity, the prayer, the plots, the trace were all giving shape to the works produced. The meetings and video conferences prior to the edition days in the workshop were a stimulus and reason for reflection for the group of artists called.
The project opened the possibility of collaborative work not only between the participating artists in each venue, but also provided the opportunity to extend the communication networks between those who participated in it, showing once again that from the simplest ideas, multiple voices can emerge.
