Face the water: aquatic observations

Workshop con Francesca Rivetti


Face the water: aquatic observations

The sea is a real passion for Francesca Rivetti. In the last years she focused her artistic research on her interest on this huge and deep reality. Apnea and swimming instructor for passion, she specialized in Apnea Mental Training Techniques. Her approach with water is something spiritual. “Human body is 70% water, as the most part of the earth is covered by water” she says. “This is a so absolute element that seems trivial to remind that is the strongest solvent: less expected is to identify it as an emotional instrument”. Since ever water is a mystery, place of the unconscious, source of life.

The workshop will be arranged in three different moment.

Friday. Incoming, introduction, theoretical issues.

Saturday. Explorative and inspiring phase, discussing about this essential element searching for water in every form: river, drops, glasses, fountains, bath tub, developing tank. The theoretical issues will complete the work, examining teacher’s and contemporary’s artworks. Finally discussion about the most sophisticated techniques to reproduce water in photos and videos.

Sunday. A practical exercise will complete the workshop. Choral discussion.
