I have been awarded with a Moore Institute Visiting Fellowship at the University of Galway (Ireland) which allows me to work in Galway (Ireland) for a month with the project Moving while doing, nomadic artistic perceptions in socio-environmental transitory times.
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.
I would like to explore nomadism and migration in relation to historical approaches from prehistoric times to the present. Especially the Celtic heritage where my personal background comes from. I come from Cantabria (Northern Spain), which has strong cultural connections in relation to this shared heritage, defining my feeling of home and identity. This is a section of my research would enable discoveries and encounters during the fellowship helping to shape my research and its artistic outcome.
