Moving while doing, nomadic artistic perceptions in socio-environmental transitory times
Moore Institute Visiting Fellowship at the National University of Ireland, February- March 2017, Galway (Ireland)
My work has become increasingly oriented towards addressing socio-environmental issues connected to migration and nomadism; the notion of home, the connection between identity and territory and its relationship to climate and social uncertainty on both a personal and community level.
Moving while doing, nomadic artistic perceptions in social and environmental transitory times is the consequence of my journey so far. My growing interest in nomadism and migration as conceptual approach, but also as empirical research and creative method for my practice originates in the prevalent nomadic lifestyle in contemporary artist-researcher.
During the project Moving while doing, nomadic artistic perceptions in socio-environmental transitory times I explored an experimental form of work - like moving-while-doing - as an attempt to unleash new forms of creativity and offer a different way to experience the notion of place, in this case the West Coast of Ireland.
This project follows a number of methods (drawn from different fields of study) transformed in artistic experiments exploring the notion of "embracing place" while walking; Embodied artistic experiences (touching, hearing, looking, observing, exploring, analising) to explore the city using sound recording, drawing, participatory research, creative mapping (data collection), etc. while in movement to understand limits between place-identity, the tangible-intangible, the "natural", the in-between, etc. from ourselves (our senses) to our "container" (the city).
Some images of the project are in the following slide, however, a more detailed information will be uploaded shortly.
