The physical action of walking, as drift in the the studio, is a way of thinking through the body, and it is fundamental for William Kentridge (1955-).In the studio, the transitus besides drift it is also passage, animated by the intermedia and transdisciplinary transposition guided by the drawing. Through a cognitive process, which brings together thought and perception, that has in the physical action of walking, the vitamin that crosses and forms the hybridization of Kentridge’s practice: “It is only when physically engaged on a drawing that ideas start to emerge. There is a combination between drawing and seeing, between making and assessing, that provokes a part of my mind that otherwise is closed off” (Kentridge, as cited in Tone, 2012).In this paper, we study the chiasm between walking and thought, as the organic and central place of artistic creation, the studio – the context of a fluid intermedia practice, realized through drawing. We propose the analysis of the studio as the place where drawing, through walking, is by nature the crossing between possibility and impossibility, defined by the particularity of being, thinking capacity of thought and act, translated into distinct and original intermedia materializations.Key Words: Thought/ Walk/ Studio/ William Kentridge/ Drawing.

A ação motora de caminhar, como deriva no estúdio, é uma forma de pensar através do corpo e é fundamental para William Kentridge (1955-).No estúdio, o transitus, além de deriva é também passagem, animado pelatransposição intermedia e multidisciplinar regida pelo desenho. Através de um processo cognitivo, reúne pensamento e perceção, que tem no caminhar a vitamina que atravessa e enforma a hibridação da prática de Kentridge: “It is only when physically engaged on a drawing that ideas start to emerge. There is a combination between drawing and seeing, between making and assessing, that provokes a part of my mind that otherwise is closed off” (Kentridge, citado em Tone, 2012).Estuda-se, pois, o quiasma entre o andar e o pensamento, no lugar orgânico e central de criação artística, o estúdio – contexto de uma prática intermedia fluída, concretizada através do desenho.Propõe-se a análise do estúdio como o lugar onde o desenho, por meio docaminhar, é, por natureza, o cruzamento entre possibilidade impossibilidade, definido pela particularidade de ser pensamento em potência e pensamento prático, traduzido em distintas e originais materializações intermedia.Palavras-chave: Pensamento/ Caminhar/ Estúdio/ William Kentridge/ Desenho.
