Depending on where it takes place, along with its political, social or environmental context, walking can take on a different meaning. Why do we walk? Out of obligation, for pleasure, to feel the world? The body through its senses, i.e. sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste, and movement, perceives sounds, images, smells, elements, situations, energies.Can walking reveal more? Can it question, transform, enrich a creative process? The Vaste et Vague Artist Center invites artists to explore these numerous questions through a tandem walk—at a distance.For the occasion, eight artists from Quebec will be paired with eight Prespa participants from abroad; thus, a total of sixteen artists will enter into dialogue. Our approach is nondirective, inviting each of the pairs to find and address their own question. A free, online version of the I Ching, a traditional game in which players are randomly presented with philosophical thoughts, will be used to open the dialogue.This is an invitation to explore site-specific in dialogue live.
