The doors of the temple of Janus open in times of war and close in times of peace.This 16th-century Roman temple VIII BC, which housed in its interior the statue of Janus - the guardian god of all beginnings, but also of his return, that is, of everything that is passage and transition - served as an indicator of the industriousness of those times.
This rite serves, so that we can also think of drawing as the opening and closing of form, in the gesture that sets up designs. Contain or release, war and peace. Likewise, we can raise a hand, and interrupt...
In this workshop, open to everyone, drawing will be practiced as action, resistance and inertia, through very simple exercises, such as brief manifestos.
