Residency • Ecosystem • Multispecies
Seeking to explore how to work with and for an ecosystem by transforming organic waste into living urban sculptures, Adriana Tamargo and Guillermo Escribano from META-colectivo offer introductory workshops on working with biomaterials and modular manufacturing.
Throughout their residency at Centro Huarte, they propose different dates in which we will learn to transform coffee grounds collected in local coffee shops into a biodegradable material with which we will build a collaborative sculpture.
This sculpture will then be placed in a green space in Huarte where it will continue to transform with the environment until it disappears.

24.10.2021 - 11:00h at Centro Huarte
Adriana Tamargo and Guillermo Escribano will show the work carried out in their residence in an event open to all audiences that will take place in the surroundings of the Arga river, starting from Centro Huarte.
Adriana Tamargo and Guillermo Escribano are part of META-colectivo, an artistic collective from Donostia, focused on visualizing possible future scenarios and alternative realities. Mixing Guillermo's experience in architecture and visual arts, and Adriana's in biodesign, they come together in the interest of non-anthropocentric worldviews and material practices that show our dependence on other living organisms with which and thanks to which we exist. Their work has been exhibited atDisseny Hub Barcelona, Escola Massana, Fabra i Coats Barcelona among others, and they have recently been scholarship recipients of the Fresh A.I.R 2020-2021 residency at the Urban Nation museum of contemporary art in Berlin.
