A workshop led by artist Aurora Pellizzi and curator Natalia Valencia exploring the spaces of intersection between textile and text ; remapping some of the distinctions between oral and written language, weaving, drawing, text and song in order to generate new meanings and forms. Stemming from the common etymological roots of text and textile, and from their shared formal and conceptual use of symbols, pictograms, rhythm and repetition, the investigation probes their socio-political and cultural applications as vehicles for history telling and time-keeping, as methods for cultural and gender representation, and as forms of inter-generational transmission.
For the first part of the workshop at L’appartement 22, we will employ Fluxus (sometimes referred to as Intermaterial) methods of cut-up and assemblage using texts stemming from our research. In the second part of the process, Othman El Kheloufi will construct -along with the participants- a sound piece based on the text and visual pieces produced in the first part of the workshop. This collective outcome will be broadcast in a special episode of Radio 22. We are interested in the oral form of radio frequencies as a space for intangible information exchange, as a transient curatorial platform from which to approach traditional forms of knowledge transmission, and as the source for new storytelling.
