The riso eticc workshop offers a new format by giving the opportunity to discover the creative process of an artist while learning about resography. “This naturally drying cold printing technique requires very little energy. The vegetable inks used do not contain any chemicals. They are recycled and biodegradable. The printing paper is uncoated, it does not undergo any treatment. This ecological process gives rise to surprises”explains Gwenaëlle Lelardeux, founder of this space dedicated to the creation and promotion of visual and graphic arts.

A colorful and engaged universe

For this first session at Hangar Crealab in Le Mans, illustrator Kiwii Pastek will share her colorful and engaged universe. “I work a lot on the representation of the body, particularly that considered “out of the norm”. I first started by illustrating fat bodies. Having experienced fatphobia at a younger age, I wanted to produce joyful representations of celebration and not of denunciation. Little by little, I extended this representation to trans, tattooed or marked bodies”explains the artist.

Kiwii Pastek will make the public react to its works drawn with Posca to create a space for discussion. “I hope to plant a small seed on the deconstruction of the “normed” body to free ourselves from stereotypes. » Everyone will be able to explore the art of portraiture and self-portraiture “without prejudice or discrimination” while learning to print your original creation in two or three color risography. “Participants will leave with five copies of their work at the end of the workshop”concludes Gwenaëlle Lelardeux.
