Giulia Gallina “ANCIENT VOICES OF THE ISLAND”

Ionion Center Flush Grant-Funded Residency

 

ancient voices (1)

During  a 4 days Flush Grant Funded Project-Residency Giulia Gallina will guide us to record sounds that represent the island of Kefalonia, ranging from nature expressions to human traditions, and to embed them in minimalist music compositions.

Aim is the creation of a meditative sound experience whose purpose is to bring out a voiced identity of the island through an “artistic repository of sounds”.

The project will culminate to a performance into a 5.000 years old historical site.

Minimalism in Music and Poetry

Master Class led by Giulia Gallina

Part of the ”GLOBAL MUSICIAN” 

IMG_album-1

Minimalism in Music and Poetry through the Eyes of a Composer

The Class will explore a possible connection that exists between some of the main exponents of minimalist music and a few selected poems from the Greek, Latin and Italian tradition evoking immediate and sensory images.

Description of activities: In our journey we will seek to examine how the works of Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt, passing through Michael Nyman, Yann Tiersen and Ludovico Einaudi, can inspire the creative process and how they can be related to the readings of Sappho’s fragments, Catullus’ labor limae and Ungaretti’s hermeticism in the perception of a composer.

We will also understand how nature can play an important role in new minimalist compositions by adventuring outdoors, listening to and recording some of the island’s sounds to be used in our creations.

The participants will be given the opportunity to compose their own music or verses following the minimalist approach and will be encouraged to work together in this respect under the guidance of the instructor.

The class will end with participation in the International Events under the project ‘’Global Musician’’ taking place 20th -22nd of August in the Island Kefalonia.

 Philosophy in the Field of Culture

Master Class led by Harrison Farina

 

Demeter and Triptolemus

Philosophy in the Field of Culture: Ancient and New Perspectives on Gesture and Production 

 

The Class will explore the role of simple, everyday gestures in art-making through an experimental approach that combines art, agriculture, and philosophy. The theoretical portion of the class will study the Greek conception of art as “techne” through the writings of Hesiod, Aristotle, and Theophrastus, philosophers who connected the natural world with social life.

Description of activities:

Welcome dinner and introduction about the island and its history will take place.

Readings by Hesiod, Aristotle and Theophrastus will be sent to participants in advance.

Our activities will take place in and around the Ionion Center but also in the most appropriate sites for the program. We will read and discuss philosophy in the evening or morning and make art in the afternoon; some days we will take our readings with us to a specific site, like the Sami Ancient Palace Walls, the Saint Fanentes Monastery, the Castle of Saint Georgιο and the ancient Mycenaean cemetery. Every day we will enjoy the beach, and other areas within walking-distance of the Ionion Center.

We will pursue the conditions of philosophy as the conditions of life, attending to the convergence of natural and creative production through the importance of nourishment in the possibility of philosophical discussion. During a day-long excursion we will explore agricultural practices and learn an ancient technique for grafting plants and explore the ways agricultural and culinary arts combine natural and creative production. Participants will master the technique for grafting plants – essentially composed of gestures – and attempt to translate these gestures into the artistic context by creating a land-art installation. The day will conclude with a workshop on traditional Greek cooking with the locals, allowing participants to see how a traditional meal is prepared with homemade materials and learn the skills of preparation — whether it is cheese, bread, meats, salad, or vegetable dishes. Access to the mountains with guidance about collecting herbs will be part of the program and approached as a creative practice.

The large cupule-stone outside the Ionion Center will possibly be used in a workshop on making paints. Papers for drawing, painting, and writing will be used. For one evening we will have an open discussion on philosophy with the island community. The Exhibition Hall of the Center will be open for participants to display their work.

The program will be in collaboration with the work of Zaineb Siddiqui about the connection of Ancient Greek Philosophy with Modern Technology and Life.

Class Instructed by: Harrison Farina in collaboration with Zaineb Siddiqui

The Class Instructor Pierre Liechner:

‘’ I was born in Romania in 1947 to Hungarian parents who fled to France where I grew up until the age of 13. We then moved to Montreal. Between the Arts and Sciences I first chose science and went to McGill for a Bachelor in Biochemistry. Curious about the mind I pursued research in Neurochemistry and obtained a Masters from the University of Strasbourg in 1969. But the laboratories were too sterile and I decided to become a physician and specialized in psychiatry. After graduating from Queen’s University and a year of research at the University of California in San Diego I started my academic career in Winnipeg at the University of Manitoba in 1978. Since then I occupied several teaching, research, clinical and administrative posts at McGill, Queen’s and now the University of British Columbia. But my increasing frustration with the politicalization and business mentality that has surreptitiously corrupted health care has led me back to question my early decision between the Arts and the Sciences. In 2002 I began on a part time basis, the Bachelor of Fine arts program at The Emily Carr Institute of Arts and Design. I received my BFA in 2007. To date my work has reflected my view of the artist as an observer and commentator on society. I use surprise, paradox and humor in my work to interest the viewers. Both the Arts and the Sciences share in their pursuit of existential meaning. In this, my interest will continue, perhaps bridging the gap between my scientific and artistic careers. I obtained my Masters in Fine Arts from Concordia University in 2011 and I am now beginning my career as a teacher and a practicing artist’’. Pierre Liechner

For 2019 Twisted Oyster will continue its focus on the environment and the impact of climate change in Nature, Economy, Health, Migrations and all of Humanity. The festival will be a platform to drive awareness with an impactful exhibition that brings forward short and feature films to be included in the festival’s special edition in Greece. As it did last year, Twisted Oyster will present films and new media productions reflecting on the ongoing environmental crisis, the delicate state of the planet. We seek productions focusing on its magnificent beauty and paralleled decay through documentary, fiction, animation, virtual and augmented realities, installation, performance, sound and video art.

Twisted Oyster Film Festival aims to raise awareness and expand knowledge about the human condition as a whole. The works created by culturally diverse artists and filmmakers from around the world open doors artwork that speaks about global social issues today. The festival presents an annually themed-based film and new media art exhibition that showcases and promotes the works of both aspiring and established professionals. The goal of the festival is to bridge culture, society and technology through powerful content programming, while focusing on engagement, enhancing access, and shedding light on contemporary issues.
