Collage and Performance
HANS & PIERRE proposal for a collective practice
The workshop aims at a personal re-appropriation of national identity through a redistribution of regional iconographies.
The technique is the one of collage and the material is second-hand art books.
The participants are invited to construct portraits : self-portraits, portraits of their nation-region or any interpretation between these two poles.
-visit a second-hand book shop
-choose and buy art books which constitute for you markers of national/personal identity
– by cutting and pasting, construct a collage-portrait structured by your interpretation of personal/national identity
– end your portrait by writing somewhere your name and your nationality
– use only images of artworks (no text, no plain colours)
– be ready to justify your choices
