Coessens, Kathleen; Douglas, Anne
This small book offers a visual and verbal reflection on the process of artistic practice and the ephemeral traces left by these. It is part of the exhibition 'Calendar Variations', held at the woodend barn, Banchory, Scotland in April 2011. It considers the links of artistic practice with the world, experience and improvisation. This all started in the summer of 2010 with an artistic project, Calendar Variations, a dynamic visual art creation in Scotland, at Gray's School of Art, Robert Gordon University, which happened at the same time as the musical project 'Unexpected Variations' in Belgium, at the Orpheus Research Centre in Music, Ghent. A deep interaction between artist-anthropologist Anne Douglas and artistphilosopher Kathleen Coessens, members of both artistic research groups, as well as the commitment and collaboration of the visual artists, shaped the artistic project into an engaged dynamic movement. Our gratitude goes to all our friends and colleagues, to the different institutions mentioned above, to the artists, philosophers and everybody without whom this endeavour would not have been possible. It is the motion and emotion emerging from this project that we hope to convey here.
