TRANSVERSAL AESTHETICS – IMMUNITY / COMMUNITY
A hybrid research and artistic production residency
Selected project: Fuegos de alto grado, by Sara García
Fuegos de alto grado (Fires of high degree) is a ceremony about caring for the Other that begins with a speculative poetic journey in the area surrounding the Arga River. The ceremony ends by sharing food which has been fermented, dehydrated, and impregnated with fungi and plants foraged near the river. This project represents an experiment in hospitality and cooperation, in order to reconsider the relationships between human and non-human beings and the land we inhabit.
Sara García explores the idea of still life painting on a participatory basis, principally through the use of food. Through a variety of activities, she attempts to generate intimate sensory experiences that grant a critical reflection on the idea of hospitality, and therefore on our relationship with the other, the unknown.
She has studied Fine Arts at the Universidad de Vigo, and at the Universidad Politécnica of Valencia. She has completed the SOMA PES in Mexico City, and has been a resident at the Academia de España in Rome. Some of the exhibitions in which she has participated are: El sol y su sombra, CCEMX, Mexico City, Presencia lúcida, ESPAC, Mexico City, Una rosa tiene forma de rosa; Oficios e instintos, Casa del Lago, Mexico City. La Isla, Isleta del Lago Mayor, Bosque de Chapultepec, Mexico City, Universo vídeo; Geo-políticas, LABoral, Gijón.
