Workshop : Can the artist's hand stop the time?
Virginie GANNAC teaches design and arts in the famous Parisian Art school Ecole Boulle. She is a doctor of the University of Paris1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, former student of the design art school ENSAAMA and ex-teacher of school of arts and fashion Ecole Duperré ; She was also lecturer for futur teachers of design (University of Cergy-Pontoise). She works on the dialectics Heritage/Modernity and Art/Sciences. She develops a transversal approach in the mediation of sciences, techniques and heritage through scenography, fashion design, sculpture, video and crafts. Her research focuses on the value of an « Object » throughout the line of time: Will it remain long-lasting, will it be transformed, will it be re-designed or… will it disappear? She collaborated with the Institut Henri Poincaré, the Poems Mathematical Laboratory and astrophysicists to create major exhibitions realized by her students of the Ecole Boulle.
