CALL FOR ENTRIES 2022
XXV International Encounters Traverse
6 – 30 April, 2021, Toulouse (France)
(Almost) Unlimited Capacity
The last months have been marked by limits; we like to think in expansion, to believe that we can let ourselves go at those sharp back and forth of art, of renewed expectations, of open dimensions. This at the risk of pleonasm since experimental art oversteps the imposed codes and invent others; it isn’t confined to the smoothness preferring roughing forms gripping senses, and this, even for producing meaning/s. It isn’t melting in models but digs, runs and pushes… and the ones coming to this invitation don’t settle for a game of question/answer but hope to be worried, moved from their routine. Moulted, moved.
The capacity can be declined: from the number of spectators to host the aptitude to do, to the quantity to produce inclination to see, from the talent of inventing to the ease of accepting it, from the volume of doing, of programming, of watching, of the intelligence to reunite those points of art declined during our last editions. And by those twenty-five years accomplished, what moves us.
The entries must prove their implication in experimentation, a personal implication, their differences…
