Schedule Wednesdays from 14hto 16h30
In The Colour of Pomegranates, the movie by Sergei Paradjanov about the medieval Armenian poet Sayat Nova, time is expressed by space, its continuity by the juxtaposition of images: a pictorial thought composed of miniatures and frescoes is revealed - an impossible and yet alive synthesis of the symmetries of Persian art, of orthodox iconography devoid of perspective and of Paradjanov’s surrealistic collages.
Exploring the singular resources of this movie, we will try to extract drawings from it and to create a material imaginary that is, according to Daney, to "the art of staying close to the elements, the materials, the colours and the textures.”
