Les Canoglyphes / Canette engraving workshop with Luka Rakol
Luka Rakol today questions the origin of language, in this case written.
What is more in a context of mixed social and cultural relations. Language is so often an obstacle to reaching out to others.
Luka remembers his disappointment when he learned that there was no such thing as a universal sign language but that there were as many as there are spoken languages, if not more! Yet he saw the perfect opportunity to think about the utopia of a world language. But words derive from thought, and the uniformity of a vocabulary would mean equally uniform thought. It is in the plurality of interactions that our richness resides, and it is our ability to understand it that is the basis of our progress as a species.
Luka Rakol likes to think of artistic expression as a language in itself. So everyone has their own language. Buried under rules of syntax and grammar.
Long before our first mimetic “Papa” or “Maman”, there is a Man who, 600,000 years ago, had fun carving a zig-zag on a seashell. Why?
Nowadays, the seashells of our ancestors could be cans ....
What would we engrave there for posterity?
Originally from Toulouse, Luka Rakol joined the ABKA workshops in 2018 to learn printmaking from Cyril Bihain and Wilfried Pulinckx. After a residency at the Maison des Artistes in Anderlecht, he exhibited the same year a series of can engravings similar to old papyrus in which Luka Rakol tried to develop a new, evolving language, between automatic writing and anachronistic references. In 2019, he was admitted to sculpture at the Royal Academy, under the direction of Lucie Lanzini. In parallel with his studies, Luka Rakol continued his in-situ practice, painting bulky items along the sidewalks, thus foiling the usual street-art codes and with his collective Freskolab won his first public commissions.
