Our second ICE immersion series will explore annulment as a tool to explore the creative process in art. Gustavo Artigas (1970) will conduct a three day immersion experience, focused on the suppression of elemental works of art to rediscover expression possibilities, as well as a way to challenge contemporary art mechanisms. Artigas’ work has examined complex social relationships by presenting situations, often rooted in disaster, which are structured as interventions, scenarios, interactive situations and games. His works have been shown in international forums such as the Venice Art Biennale, Havana Bienniale and Liverpool Bienniale. By suppressing elements of different works and reorganizing them in a particular manner, participants will unveil the works of art themselves. Like Rauschenberg did with de Kooning in 1953, the group will erase –in a sense- and reconstruct pieces of art to suppress its basic meaning and encounter new significance. Salvador Alanis (1964) is a writer, and one of the founders of the Institute for Creative Exchange.
