How can we travel without moving from the spot? Dreams, art and literary fantasy reveal distant places outside the usual parameters and aesthetics. Spurred by a desire to approach the unknown, many travellers visit remote, inhospitable places in search of an unknown but tempting destiny. Their experiences have undoubtedly inspired striking descriptions that fuse the real with the imaginary.
Can reality go beyond fiction?
As with the Visit, we will be looking at travel as discovery or as an imaginative choice through different artistic ideas.
Taking a group approach, in the Workshop we will create an invented space and consider the nature of a traveller’s experience who crosses into the realm of the unknown for the first time without any preconceived idea of the place or way of life.
