Day 11 Saturday, 23 August 2014.

We woke up with one common freeze frame in our heads.

The installation’s room looks exactly the same as the first day we got into it: a space with chairs and desks. The grapes have been eaten, the floor plan is rolled into one package to be taken to the next exhibition, we will cook the beans sometime into the near future, the plants will grow somewhere in Venice, all cardboard will be recycled. The presentation lasted two hours, and that was the life of our artwork, that now grows further on different places and contexts. Some of us will have new ideas, based on this common one, some others have gained good friends and colleagues for a lifetime; we all have won 8 fundamentals that we are going to recognize from now on in every structure and will let it grow there into what the city of Venice architecture taught us: when it comes to life and creation, nothing is impossible.

A warm and sincere thank you with gratitude to all participants and teachers involved!

IP Creating a Context #3: Krakow

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

The CREATING A CONTEXT Erasmus Intensive Programme (IP) Krakow 2014 brings together postgraduate Fine Art and Architect students from Newcastle University, Akademie der Bildenden Künste München, Politecnico Milano, Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam, Glasgow School of Arts, Université Catholique de Louvain Bruxelles and the Kunstakademie Münster  to collaborate on new innovative artworks and spatial solutions.

Using the concept of an international ‘biennale’, the curriculum will emulate a ‘real’ professional context. The students, working in small cross-disciplinary and transnational groups will be invited to respond to a specific site. This practice led approach will be embedded in a theoretical framework that enables a critical discussion and understanding of European art and architecture production and exhibition practice.

Here is the agenda of the two weeks and the Lablog presentation Beyond Memorialisation (140710).
