Teresa Silva (Residence)
March 2 - March 13
Enjoy the weather
Enjoy the weather was triggered by reading ‘The life of plants’ by Emanuele Coccia. This poetic and philosophical essay adopts the plants’ point of view as a way to understand the world, not as a simple collection of objects, but as a space of metaphysical interaction where all living beings share the same breath. Following this hypothesis, the creative process is conceived as a common body, an ecosystem, which results from a set of relationships, interactions and affects. In the artistic residencies, ways of meeting, sharing, practicing, creating and presenting are explored, investigating how we perceive and act in this interconnected, impermanent and interdependent world.
