SKiP announcement – Françoise Thibault

“I See You”

We are pleased to announce Françoise Thibault will be hosting one of her “Two-Way-Mirror” collaborative drawing events called, “I See You” throughout the day!

Participants look at each other though a Plexiglas frame called the “Two-Way-Mirror” and share an intimate moment of connection where they begin to interact through line making, simultaneously tracing each other’s face onto the glass. Metaphorically, the glass represents the mind and the lines traced onto it, their perceptions of each other. As they draw, their lines, which attempt to capture the likeness of the person sitting across from them, also come to block them out as the glass fills with interpretive images.

My art explores questions of subjectivity and objectivity, representation and projection, seeing and knowing. I’m fascinated by the un-crossable void that separates our inner awareness of self from the outer appearances and sensations of the world. I feel like the mind-filter of subjectivity doesn’t just interpret the world, it creates the world, each co-constructing the other, self and world, vision and knowledge. Images and representations—art, loosely—seem to me to be the best tools for exploring this act of reciprocal creation. – Françoise Thibault
