The dream of Cincinnatus
Workshop "The dream of Cincinnatus" by an informal association of graphic artists, art historians and curators Print-Commune.
Inspired by an excerpt from the Vladimir Nabokov’s novel "Invitation to a Beheading" and contemplations about the dreams by the main character Cincinnatus, each participant will create their own work-reflection on the theme of sleep using the technique of monotype and pochoir printing (screen printing).
Monotype implies randomness, elusiveness, originality, unreality. Pochoir (stencil printing) implies clarity, repeatability (replication), inviolability.
Combining these two techniques, we will ask a question of the nature of sleep and its relationship with reality. Will we agree with the hero of the novel that a dream is a half-reality, a promise of reality, its threshold, and reality is a half-sleep, a bad slumber?
Each participant will create at least two graphic sheets.
