Invisible lines: drawing bodies

with Rikke Villadsen, Bim Eriksson, Lode Herregods, Mia Oberländer, Barbora Satranská

chair Ilaria Tontardini

To draw a body is never a neutral act: from the physicality of drawing to his symbolic meaning, telling in comics always means talking about the body, modeling it, transforming it, playing with its visible and invisible dimension. The boys and girls of Invisible Lines discuss it with the comic artist Rikke Villadsen, who has made of the representation of the body the figure of her art.
