As an extension of the conversation around Delphine Wibaux’s work held on Thursday 28 April at 4pm, the artist will offer a one-day workshop structured around two ideas that resonate with the questions explored in the research project Forms of Life. The first idea is that of ‘notation’: how to grasp something from life as it is unfolding? The second is that of immersing oneself into the living world.
The workshop will mostly take place outdoors, in Antwerp, in an area situated on the threshold between urban and natural space. It will consist of directing our attention toward the natural life in this locale, its temporality, its different scales, and to interrogate through these aspects the notion of point of view. The participants are invited to bring two types of tools with which ‘to take notes’, whether these are photographic, textual, graphic, pictorial, filmic or even sculptural: one tool that the participant has mastery over, and one with which they are less familiar.
A graduate of l’École des Beaux-Arts de Marseille (2014), Delphine Wibaux (1991, Pau) has had exhibitions in institutions and in the context of various events such as the Villa du Parc in Annemasse (2020), La Friche de la Belle de Mai in Marseille (2020), Les Capucins in Embrun (2020), the Collection Lambert in Avignon (2019), the Tbilisi Art Fair (2018), and Art-O-Rama in Marseille (2017). She regularly participates in residencies and works collaboratively, notably through the duos Todèl and Cadèl.
Forms of Life is developed by Tina Gillen, Artist, Teacher and Researcher at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Christophe Gallois, Curator, Head of Exhibitions at Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, and a group of students and alumni of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, in collaboration with Mudam Luxembourg.
