Festival ARTONOV 2018

Festival ARTONOV 2018 Japanese calligraphy has influenced and continues to influence Western art, from music to painting and many other arts forms. It takes many years of practice to master Japanese calligraphy, and the immediacy of the gesture of writing makes it an art where the creative and performative gesture is very close. Western music and some musical instruments such as the bass clarinet from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, in the Japanese period, seem to be inspired by this art thanks to their design and the immanence of their artistic form. The sound which sometimes seems to have a more crude gesture than that of calligraphy, on the other hand has a preparation and a similar mastery.  If for Paul Klee, the line is a point that has gone for a walk, the walk of a brush in calligraphy could be a sensory journey beyond the boundaries of the image itself. Can we translate a sound into calligraphy and vice versa? The performance at Villa Cavrois will present a program which combines the calligraphic and musical gesture with the architecture of Robert Mallet-Stevens as part of the performance ritual. If architecture is defined as mute music by Goethe, then the architecture will be sculpted here as a sound calligraphy.

“Traces Of The Soul” Official Trailer
 
I’m pleased to inform that the documentary film of calligraphy “Traces Of The Soul” has its World Premiere at Asolo Art Film Festival in Italy on June 7th and 10th.
Unlike digital communication, handwriting carries something beyond literal meaning, something of the soul. Through the eyes of twelve international artists “Traces of the soul” explores the world of contemporary calligraphy and why it is an increasingly relevant art form in this digital age.

Asolo Art Film Festival dedicated to art cinema was born from a rib of the Venice Biennale. In 1994, the documentary film of Yu-Ichi Inoue, the world wide Japanese calligrapher won the Grand Prix at this festival.

“Be Here Now”
 

An action always has a starting point and a finishing point. Once I set my brush to the paper and start writing a character, the action must be carried on through to the end. There is no pause, no going back, nor any way to re-do something. Regarding completed works, if viewers follow the order of brush strokes with their eyes, they can imagine how my brush moved, from the starting point to its finish, with the flow of time. My artwork, like music and dance, is an art form linked to time. It can be said that the tracks of the brush are the traces of the time.
In Zen, there is a teaching which translates as, “Be here now”. It does no good to regret the unchangeable past, or to feel gloomy about a future which has not yet come. What is important is living “here and now”, with all our strength, where we are.
With this in mind, as evidence of having lived here and now, I hope to connect invisible time to the forms of beauty and crystallize the precious ‘now’ in forms like no other.
