On serendipity and artistic research
(Serendipity: A discovery or lucky and unexpected finding that occurs when you are looking for something else. It can also refer to the ability of an individual to recognise an important discovery unrelated to that for which they are searching. In general terms it can also denote chance, coincidence or accident.)
Dora García will be proposing some ‘case studies’: her own works that are the result of a series of – sometimes surprising – coincidences. The intention is to create artistic works as a narrative genre, close to the detective story and also the fantasy novel. Similar experiences will be invoked among the attending artists and, finally, a practical exercise in the development of an idea will be proposed.
