Open Call • Residency
After reading the many projects received, we have reconsidered the decision to choose one project. We have noticed that a large part of the proposals have addressed the objectives of the call in a pertinent and situated way, focusing on artistic practice as a tool to navigate in this period of immense disruption and social change.
The two selected projects have sought to inhabit the same workspace to explore, in an affective and careful way, the moment we are living. One of them focuses on bodies, relationships and accompaniment between them, while the other extends the idea of care and collaboration to other non-human beings. They complement each other by attending from the most internal and personal to welcoming a more extensive relationship with the environment.
The complementarity and possible interrelation between both proposals has led the team responsible for the selection to focus on these two projects:
Compost - ables, by Meta - colectivo (Adriana Tamargo Iturri and Guillermo Escribano Arrieta)
What would a multispecies urbanism look like that puts the care and health of the ecosystem in the foreground? What kind of collaborations between humans and other critters can we imagine? What kind of art would we make together-with other organisms and for the environment we inhabit? Compost-ables explores how to work with and for an ecosystem by transforming organic waste into living urban sculptures.
Temblar los centros (Amalia Ruiz-Larrea Fernández, Eva Garrido del Saz, Selva)
A body trembles, and it moves us. Maybe if we learn not to stop it, but to lean against it discovering a new movement, then all bodies could tremble together. There won´t be anymore one way of doing so. We want to find ways of supporting each other through practice, through trying, through imitating, with each other, inviting others, embracing others, moving from our inner self, reaching the furthest we can, and back again. We want to live with the tremble, we want to be strong while trembling together.
