Denis GielenThe architecture cell of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation launched a ‘Fenêtre sur’ collection with Jean-François Pirson : Pédagogies de l'espaces - Workshops.An artist and teacher, honorary professor at the Higher Institute of Architecture Lambert Lombard (Liege), Jean François Pirson expresses his relationship with space through an array of artistic and educational practices: drawings, photography, installations, texts, walks and workshops.Focusing on space, his teaching work explores phenomenological, anthropological and artistic fields. It addresses in particular the space of the body, how we inhabit a space, “outside” spaces, perception and the creative attitude. He has a predilection for working at the crossroads of disciplines, practices and philosophies.
