with Camilo Garcia Aycardi, Floor Van Meeuwen, Avital Barkai, Anna Sandri
This time we are with the probably most playful company, exploring how the variety of backgrounds could be melted together into collaborative, shared paths. Floor, Camilo, Avital and Annas' contributions started with the experience of collecting small pieces of ceramics around Cà de Monti - leftovers of old, dismantled houses with apparently no connections with the place itself. Each one different from the other in terms of color, pattern, texture and origin, this small stones seem to narrate many stories. While reflecting on surroundings, they enjoyed the process, the path, embracing the joy of the discovery, and the beauty of smaller things. Lately fascinated by the falling stars we could see every night (which in fact are stones), they could relate the sky and the ground we were lying on, while exploring some historic-grounded theories, premonitions, and myths around falling stars - which provided also the background for the publication "Sasso". They've been also busy with the Reclaimed Wood's leftovers found in the residency - whose variety speaks back to the small stones - which they used to build the Moving Sculpture(s). The sculpture is designed as a construction set, sharing the playfulness of the project within the process in itself but also as a result, allowing the public to engage, change and move the sculptures in total freedom.
