|Signs of the artist is a short experimental group derived from a device inspired by Lacanian posters, under the artistic experimentation Project "reincarnations". Faced with an issue of common interest, participants explored from its own feature and interrogation by means of one or more artistic productions. Supposed moments of meetings and conversations that led and moved, and offering findings impacting own special production of the project.
For Peirce the sign is what represents something for someone. For Lacan, Seminar Even after (1972-1973), is written letter. The sign is an x, does not communicate any message, it is not on the side of significance. However, the effects of enjoyment force the subject to eternal return of the sign, which impacts the body resonance. There is a hidden meaning in the letter is read but impossible. However, the artist, say Proust, who can give something of his inner world, some of his secret, to be shown and even revealed.
Toti Reynaud, Tachuela, Laura Hart, Mariana Martinez Otín and Mario Dante Araniti are Argentine artists living in the province of Mendoza. Over several months of work were summoned by Gabriela Nafissi to work from this device with the ultimate goal of making a sample called "Signs. Gestural exploration, visual arts and music" and performed at the winery Monteviejo, located in Tunuyán, in the province of Mendoza.
"Signs" realizes an exploratory process of these five artists in their divergence, uniqueness and own stylistic, not without the presence of the brand, registration, which acts as a footprint in the sand, and that despite erased, delimited in Leather living each resonance space. Transiting an area of sensitivity that is about the writing on the body rather than spoken. Traces which become lines in the visual, musical, sign language, as the way to manifest. There is a desert of the real for each one, and the know-how to do something with that, different.
The short film "Signs of the Artist" is a subjective report of the Director on the effects of speech, and the productions of each artist in his journey with the sign. Five shorts films about what that makes signs on each artist and, and how Arts is a tao, a path, a journey and a unique production.
Then, they will exhibit one by one these stories.
