ANIMATE STILL LIFE: COOKING AND CULTIVATING IN CONTEMPORARY ARTISTIC PRACTICES

Conference by David Faltot, Doctor of Fine Arts, attached to CEAC - Centre d'étude des arts contemporains at the University of Lille.

Today, many artists take advantage of daily practices and activities such as cooking or gardening to "make art". By updating the genre of still life, they restore a certain vivacity to objects, foods or symbols previously represented in inanimate form in archetypal paintings of this artistic genre. So, how do some artists apply themselves to bringing still life to life? Through various contemporary examples, this conference will aim to analyze the work of artists working from cooking or horticulture, in order to understand what is at stake behind these new practices. 

Price: 10 euros
