CANCELLED - Workshop de Penny Siopis
23-27 mars 2020.
Ecole de Recherche Graphique [ERG] and Université Libre de Bruxelles [ULB].
Penny Siopis is currently an Honorary Professor at Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. Her work since the early 1980s has encompassed painting, film/video, photography and installation. All her explorations, whether with body politics, memory, migration, or the relations between the human and non-human, are characterised by her interest in what she calls the ‘poetics of vulnerability’ – embodied in the dynamic play between materiality and reference, chance and contingency, form and formlessness, personal and collective history.
Her workshop is organized in the frame of the AR/FNRS project Family films. Colonial anamnesis, dedicated to artistic and anthropological researches focusing on private family films shouted in colonial contexts.
