As part of Alexandra Grant’s upcoming exhibition Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest, Cixous Reading Group is open for participation.
The Hélène Cixous reading group’s final meeting is Sunday, June 17, facilitated by Robert Nashak and Alexandra Grant. The meeting will be from 4 – 6 pm.
The Cixous reading group coincides with the Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest, a participatory art project by 18th Street’s upcoming Lab Artist Grant in collaboration with Hélène Cixous to take place jointly at 18th Street Arts Center (Santa Monica) and Mains d’Oeuvres (Saint Ouen) in 2013. Grant’s response to Cixous and Philippines is the project Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest centering on the image of a forest as a representation of both the shared imagination and a place for congregation and collaboration.
Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest includes a large-scale installation of a forest and a collaborative drawing that invites community participation. The drawing, functioning both as an illustration and a text scroll, represents a visual narrative of Philippines. Created by Grant in conjunction with other artists and members of the public, the process of working jointly invites contemplation of Cixous’s concepts and develops a platform for shared imagining.
