Discovering the World of Visual Arts, inspired by the work of Jannis Psychopedis
Starting out with Jannis Psychopedis' POETICAL WORKS exhibition, we will explore how poetry, and the figures of poets themselves, morph into images.
In the two monthly workshop sessions, participants learn about the history, styles and basic techniques of engraving. They experiment on linoleum (a surface commonly used in engraving) and create works inspired by iconic poems that triggered Jannis Psychopedis' creative process.
November is dedicated to Odysseus Elytis and his poems “To Anoint the Repast,” from his collection The Little Seafarer, and “Gift Silver Poem,” from The Light-Tree and the Fourteenth Beauty.
Each participant produces a print featuring images inspired by the poem’s lyrics; then, all together, they compose a sequence that forms the collective narrative of the group.
Prior to the workshop, there will be a short visit to the exhibition.
