The gaze and its role in the process of making.
Let’s start by searching for something that captures our imagination and curiosity. It can be a material, a process, a memory, a mistake, a found object or nature itself. What is there that you hold dear and that you feel the need to transform from your private universe to a wider language? Taking the flow of this state of mind, we will boost the creative process. Materials and thoughts will be transformed and concepts and ideas will be our guide.

Dates: Friday, November 15th 2019: 4 pm – 9 pm. Saturday, November 16th 2019: 11 am – 7 pm. Sunday, November 17th 2019: 10 am – 5 pm.
Course languages: Deutsch, English, Italiano.
Workshop fees: CHF 500

About the teacher:
Kiko Gianocca lives and works in Lugano.
I like the notion that a piece of jewellery stands between the body (the self) and the world, representing a sort of link between the inner and the outer. As such they do not only envelop and protect the wearer but also they have the capacity to reach inside and move things, thoughts and feelings. Changing and transforming objects, things that are around me every day catch my attention and I try to manipulate the way we look at them. I attempt to give them a new life and identity, a new way to be perceived, appropriated and used. By transforming objects, I provide an opportunity and choice for people to look at things differently, and as an object slowly reveals itself, it is given back a certain power that has been lost.
