ΜΥΣΤΗΡΙΟ 52 Mystikit Ελευσίνα - Eκπαιδευτική Βαλίτσα

Ένα «ελευσίνιο» παιχνίδι περιπλάνησης

για μαθητές Δ’ Δημοτικού έως Γ’ Γυμνασίου

 

Γινόμαστε Πλάνητες. 

Όπως η Δήμητρα κάποτε. 

«Στον καθρέφτη Ελευσίνα βλέπω τον εαυτό μου εκεί όπου δεν βρίσκομαι» – παραφράζοντας τα λόγια του Michel Foucault.
 

Η βαλίτσα με τον τίτλο Mystikit Ελευσίνα παίρνει τη μορφή μιας DIY εργαλειοθήκης μύησης, δράσης και εξερεύνησης που ταξιδεύει από σχολείο σε σχολείο σε όλη την Ελλάδα.

Το kit περιέχει τον απαραίτητο εξοπλισμό (όργανα μέτρησης, tablet, εκτυπωτή, εκπαιδευτικά έντυπα κ.ά.) προκειμένου οι μαθητικές ομάδες να ολοκληρώσουν μια περιπλάνηση με ψυχογεωγραφικά χαρακτηριστικά έξω από το σχολικό περιβάλλον, στον δημόσιο χώρο, στην καρδιά της πόλης, στη γειτονιά.

Με αφετηρία τις εννέα διαδοχικές καταστάσεις του μύθου της Δήμητρας, που αντιστοιχούν σε έναν ακουστικό περίπατο εννέα σημείων στην πόλη της Ελευσίνας, οι μαθητές περιδιαβαίνουν τη δική τους πόλη, σχηματίζουν τον αισθητηριακό χάρτη της διαδρομής τους, επινοούν τον «μύθο της πόλης» και στο τέλος κρύβουν μέσα στη βαλίτσα το Μυστήριο.

Χρησιμοποιώντας το εύρημα του κατεξοχήν περιπλανητή «πλάνητα», η δράση στοχεύει σε μια συναισθηματική βίωση και επαναοικειοποίηση του τόπου, στη θέαση της καθημερινής ζωής ως μιας ευκαιρίας καλλιτεχνικής πράξης, στη μετακίνηση της συνειδητότητας στο παρόν και το τώρα.

Τα παιδιά καλούνται να ανακαλύψουν μια εντελώς νέα και αυθεντική εμπειρία, ένα «άφημα» στην επιρροή των «μυστήριων» συναντήσεων και των καταστάσεων που θα βιώσουν.

Το σημείο κλειδί εδώ είναι η περιπλάνηση.

Ας γίνουμε όλοι Πλάνητες λοιπόν. 

Όπως η Δήμητρα κάποτε...

MYSTERY 52
Mystikit Eleusis - Educational Kit

 

An "Eleusinian" game of wandering. 

"In the mirror of Elefsina I see myself there where I am not" – paraphrasing Michel Foucault.

Mystikit takes the form of a DIY toolbox for initiation, action and exploration that travels from one school to the next throughout Greece.

The kit contains the necessary equipment (measuring instruments, tablet, printer, educational material, etc.) for student groups to carry out a psychogeographic field trip beyond their school context and into public space, the heart of the city, the neighbourhood.

The aim is an emotional experience and re-appropriation of space – to see everyday life as an opportunity for an artistic act.

Starting from the nine successive stages of the myth of Demeter, which correspond to a sonic walk around nine spots in the city of Elefsina, the students wander around their own town, chart the sensorial map of their route, devise their "myth of the city" and finally conceal the Mystery in the toolbox.

There you go becoming wanderers, like Demeter once upon a time.

The aim, ultimately, is for the students to discover an all-new and authentic experience, surrendering themselves to the effect of the “mystical” encounters and situations they come across.

The school programs about Louise Bourgeois’s sculpture Maman at the SNFCC are inspired by the autobiographical tone permeating the artist’s oeuvre.

Following Bourgeois’s visual journey, from childhood to her youth and on to her maturity, the workshops incorporate a number of artistic practices employed by the artist over the course of each respective period of her life.

At the same time, underneath her iconic spider sculpture, participants can hear Louise, as a child, a young woman, and an adult, talk about her thoughts and events from her life.

My name is Louise - L. B. 
Kindergarten–3rd Grade
From a very young age, Louise used to help her mother in their family business of mending woven rugs. 

What she enjoyed most was drawing the missing designs on the worn tapestries, so that they could then be woven with thread. 

The “spider” form, which represents Bourgeois’s close relationship with her mother, was born from her childhood memories, when she was exploring the art of weaving, participating in the ritual of restoring old woven heirlooms: washing the rugs in the river, mending them, painting the threads, sewing.

At the workshop, young students embark on a journey back in time! They find themselves in 1920 Paris, meet 9-year-old Louise and help her mend a valuable tapestry that has just arrived at her mother Josephine’s weaving workshop.

*For the purposes of the workshop, students will need to bring along with them a piece of fabric that belongs to their mother orof a loved one since at the end of the workshops the textile will become a thread to form a collective tapestry.

Fabric is a memory exercise - L. B.
4th–7th Grades 
Although Louise Bourgeois is better known for her sculptures, at the beginning of her career, and for nearly twenty years, she was dedicated to painting and engraving.

Her writings, as well as her drawings, are a collection of deep personal thoughts and memories from her childhood. 

The artist used to jot down thoughts and images on countless sheets of paper, on the back of her designs, and in many, many journals. “You can withstand anything as long as you write it down,” she used to say. 

Inspired by Bourgeois’s illustrated books, students become acquainted with mixed collage and fabric printing techniques, and then create a handcrafted textile journal, Louise-style.

*For the purposes of the workshop, students will need to bring along a photograph (children, family) printed on paper and a piece of fabric that remind them of something from their lives  or by a person close to them.

Maman is an ode to my mother - L. B.
sculpture workshop

8th–12th Grades
Louise Bourgeois created her first sculpture shortly before turning forty. At that time, she first painted the “spider” symbol on paper, and then started to experiment with various materials, such as wood, clay and plaster. At the age of 88, she created the giant spider Maman.

In the words of the artist: “My best friend was my mother; and she was very smart, patient, calm, tidy, handy and helpful, as rational and necessary as a spider.”

In this workshop, revolving around the sculpture Maman, students work on contradictory concepts, such as strong-fragile, love-fear, protection-entrapment, and construct a creature (real or imaginary) that symbolizes motherhood.

Working from inside out, both symbolically and functionally, they will first mold the creature’s frame using galvanized wire, and then dress it with materials, such as plaster cloth, to shape it in the form they have imagined. 

*For the purposes of the workshop, students will need to bring along with them a piece of fabric that belongs to their mother or a loved one since at the end of the workshops the textile will become a thread to form a collective tapestry.
