Ciracì’s philosophy

 Sarah Ciracì, showing her art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné”

“I do art but I’m not inspired by art”. Apulian artist Sarah Ciracì’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work? 
I usually begin to get interested in a topic by reading up on it as much as possible. Then, I let the pieces of information arrange in mental patterns by themselves and, if everything is alright, the patterns become visible forms.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?
I have no preferences about technical tools. There are no limits to me. I try to adapt the medium to the idea, the concept, which always comes before anything else. I neither draw nor paint just because, unfortunately, it does not come naturally to me. I’ve created only invisible, unconscious paintings...

What future plans are there in your drawer?
Many, many, too many for this time dimension. I’d like to focus again on inner landscapes. Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?
It is a question that makes me feel uncomfortable, I cannot really answer. Generally, I’m not inspired by art, but I am aware of the fundamental role played by art in limiting the damages caused by the natural human tendency to reason by fixed patterns.

What books do you read?
I like essays. Recently, I’ve been reading books on neuroscience, although I don’t understand much of them, I try ..

Bugatti’s philosophy

Chiara Bugatti, showing her art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné”

“Wood, glass, iron have artistic power to allude to tradition and private atmospheres”. The Venetian artist Chiara Bugatti’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

Connections between opposite poles, such as private and external/media/natural world. It’s about the ambiguous and shimmering language that they need to adopt in order to communicate with each other.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

Photography is absolutely necessary in my work. I often use construction materials - wood, glass, iron – and fabrics because of their peculiarities and their power to allude to tradition and private atmospheres.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

I’ll move to Sweden in a couple of months to continue my research.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

The latest work that enchanted me was by Camille Henrot.

What books do you read?

I have recently been reading essays about the recording of informations in human memory, and also about communication and relationships (both anthropological and sentimental).

Goran Petercol for ArTVision

The Croatian artist Goran Petercol and the musical tandem JMZM at the arTVision Light Residence.

The international Light Residence workshop "The Light Within the Language of an Art Installation" will take place from January 20 to 24, 2015 at the Academy of Applied Arts at the University of Rijeka. The workshop is organized within the European project ArTVision, with the participation of partners from Italy, Montenegro, Albania and Croatia, and the Croatian partners are Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and the broadcaster Kanal Ri.

The aim of the project is to establish contemporary art in wider public through the television media, by recording features on famous contemporary artists and their practices, but also through practical work accomplished through organized workshops for students, guided by renowned artists. Light Residence Workshop has been held so far in Italy and Albania, and the Croatian edition of the workshop will welcome five students from three countries: Italy (Academy of Fine Arts of Bari and Venice), Albania (University of Arts of Tirana), and Montenegro (Faculty of Dramatic Arts of Cetinje).

About ten students from the Academy of Applied Arts of Rijeka, attending the elective course of Scenography at the undergraduate study, and the courses of Intermedia and Scenography Spaces of the graduate study of Mediatic Art and Practice will join the participants. The main lectures at the workshop will be held by the retired professor and famous artist, Goran Petercol, who says that the light, as the topic of the workshop, is very interesting, as the students, using the light, can easily approach the problem and understand the installation media, while for those interested in the scenography space, the light represents a special challenge due to the wide range of possibilities of use. Foreign students will also have the opportunity to try courses connected to the performing arts - Jewellery Design and Costume Design.

According to the organiser of the Light Residence workshop of Rijeka, Assoc. Prof. Lara Badurina, Vice-dean for artistic and scientific activities at the Academy of Applied Arts, the students will assist to a variety of activities in the afternoon, after the lectures that will be held from 10 to 13. Among the different activities, they will see “The Demolition of the Eiffel Tower” by Jeton Neziraj at the Croatian House of Culture HKD Sušak, while the remaining days they will be assisting practical activities. The musical tandem JMZM, Josip Marši? and Zoran Medved, will hold a series of lectures for students that will concentrate on the topic of creation, production and usage of sound in different artistic environments (live concerts, theatre sounds, film sounds...); guided by the professor Petercol, the students will create a template for a film or a show in the premises of the Academy.

The students’ works will be presented during the following semester, at one of the next exhibitions at the Academy of Applied Arts of the University of Rijeka.

What is the starting point of your work?

Thinking.

Any means that is useful to achieve the purpose is the right one. There should be no limits or preferences. The important thing is that the work is exactly as it has been conceived.

“In my art the skin is a natural boundary and sensitive surface”.

Maccapani’s philosophy

Annamaria Maccapani, showing her art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” 

“I love manual works, especially if they are long and repetitive: it makes me reflect and meditate about the work and give me the possibility to entering in it and understand it in a better way”. Venetian artist Annamaria Maccapani’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

My work is characterized by heaviness that causes immobility. I speak about the difficulty of man going on, stopped by the weight of himself and of his fears. To speak about this, I use contrast: the subjects I use are taken from the world of light things and often have a link with flying and I reproduce them with heavy materials to underline contrast and the drama. There is also in my work an analysis on weight, on how it can transform and change its meaning from negative to positive and vice versa depending on the theme or the object it refers to: in this work, for example, I use lead to give importance and stability to the starting points of communication (the banks).

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

To speak about this kind of theme I’ve learnt to work with lead, the heavy metal: I love to model it beating it on the anvil with the hammer trying to reproduce the object I choose in a realistic way. In general I love manual works, especially if they are long and repetitive: make the same little part of a work for many many times, always in the same way, always with the same method makes me reflect and meditate about the work and give me the possibility to enter it and understand it in a better way.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

To become a great artist could be a good plan for the future, I would like to, but the only thing I wish for the future is to find always a way, a kind of work that gives me the possibility to use hands, to create, to ideate, to express myself.

Which are the contemporary artist s whose work you admire?

I love Ai Wei Wei installations, and the work of Tatiana Trouvè. Now I’ m curious about the work of Susanna Bauer and of Doris Salcedo whose works I’ m discovering just now.

What books do you read?

I like books of Jack Kerouac, from Beat Generation and, in general, I like novels: now I’m reading “Unbearable Lightness of Being” by Milan Kundera.

Gala’s philosophy

Enej Gala, showing his art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” 

 

“I read books with bad covers”. Venetian artist Enej Gala’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

A collection of traces which on the basis of the dialogue between the observer and the observed, in the best case reveal the path to a possible prey. The prey usually represents a myth which my reality got involved with and I need to digest.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

Pencils, oil colours, recycle material, needle and thread.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

Hunting.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

Chapman brothers, Albert Oehlen, Cai Guo-Qiang, Shinichi Sawada, Francesco Albano…

What books do you read?

The ones with bad covers.

Fani’s philosophy

Sulejman Fani, showing his art in the exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” 

“In art spontaneity is a best plan ever”. Albanian artist Sulejman Fani’s philosophy in five questions’ interview.

What is the starting point of your work?

The starting point of this video was not exactly the real obstacle, which is invisible, but is something which as time passes by it appears as real.

What are the tools, techniques by which you prefer to work?

Mediums that i prefer to use are video and painting , even though they Are different from each other, I like them both.

What future plans are there in your drawer?

Usually I do not like to make plans for the future, because I think that spontaneity is a best plan ever.

Which are the contemporary artists whose work you admire?

My favorite artists are Bill Viola and Marina Abramovich, who develop their work in video art and performance. I also like minimalist art which I like to develop in my art.

What books do you read?

Usually I prefer to read art books and biographical books.

Light residence in Rijeka

The relationship between light and art installation in the five days of Light Residence and Art Show – Languages of Art Installations in Rijeka from January 20th to 24th, 2015.

This is the third step of the program of artistic residencies held in the countries involved in arTVision project, that feature young artists in training, students of the Academy of Fine Arts called to participate in the construction of five "art show" taught by internationally renowned artists, to multiply the visions and work together.

The Light Residence in Rijeka will be held at the Academy of Applied Arts (Slavka Krautzeka 83 - Trsat University Campus) and hosted by the Academy’s retired professor and renowned Croatian artist Goran Petercol.

After introduction, the participants will be presented with the teaching programs of Academy’s courses Scenography, Costume Design and Jewelry Design. The content of the workshop will also include a presentation of institutions  taking part in ArTVision project,  such as Primorje Gorski-Kotar County, Kanal Ri and MMSU, as well as institutions that the Academy of Applied Arts cooperates with in development of art and performance programs, such as the Ivan Zajc National Theatre.

The workshop includes five lectures with projections that are also the topics for the practical work.  The lectures discuss the processes of lighting:

•                Light makes things visible:

•                Illuminated area creates a form

•                Source of light has a form

•                Difference in amount of light

•                Light is colour

The practical work is based on the given topics, but starts from individual positions of the workshop participants. For the participants the aim is to realize that their previous creative experience is as valuable as the lecture topics. Each day a lecture topic is explored, individually or in teams. Bearing in mind that the duration of the workshop is quite short, it is important to note that the best results will probably not be achieved within that time, but later, in continuation of the process within regular classes.

The general aim of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the existing models of creation and offer them support in developing individual solutions.

#05 – PUGLIA / Coexistence

Last step of the traveling exhibition “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koinè” in Polignano a Mare

The “tour” of the show “Coexistence: for a new Adriatic koiné” is going to end in Puglia, after the previous appointments in Tirana (Albania), Cetinje (Montenegro), Rijeka (Croatia) and Venice (Italy). The Foundation Pino Pascali in Polignano a Mare will host the grand final, curated by Antonio Frugis of the itinerant, contemporary art exhibition “ART IN PORT – Coexistence for a new Adriatic Koiné”.

It will open on January 31st 2015 and will run until March 1st, 2015: the Foundation’s spaces will be invaded by the artworks by artists coming from the five countries partner of the project: Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy (Veneto and Puglia). They are: Endri Dani, Sulejman Fani, Ilir Kaso, Alketa Ramaj, Anila Rubiku, Albania; Irena Lagator Pejovi?, Nataljia Vujoševi?, Jovana Vujanovi?, Igor Rak?evi?, Jelena Tomaševi?, Montenegro; Gildo Bav?evi?, Nika Rukavina, Fokus Grupa, Ana Hušman, Davor Sanvincenti, Croatia; Giulia Maria Belli, Chiara Bugatti, Enej Gala, Annamaria Maccapani, Francesca Piovesan, Veneto; Dario Agrimi, Sarah Ciracì, Gianmaria Giannetti, Francesca Loprieno, Giuseppe Teofilo, Puglia.

Working together to give voice to art, to multiply its visions, to create a narration with many voices, connected together into a large Adriatic and transmedia network: this is the main goal of the project. The exhibition is part of the project "arTVision. A live art channel" funded by the European IPA Adriatic CBC Programme 2007/2013, with the purpose to activate and connect the creative energy of young artists invited to participate as protagonists.

It is an experimental project, led by Puglia Region - Area Policies for the Promotion of Territory, Knowledge and Talent, which involves: Pino Pascali Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art; Veneto Region - Direction of cultural and performance activities; Academy of Fine Arts of Venice; Ministry of Culture of Montenegro; Faculty of Dramatic Arts of Cetinje – Montenegro; Ministry of Culture of Albania; University of Arts of Tirana - Albania; Primorje-Gorski Kotar County – Croatia; Kanal RI - Croatia.

The core idea is to establish a strict dialogue among cross-border Nations through a set of cultural actions, aimed at finding out commonalities and discontinuities among peoples sharing the Mare Nostrum of the Adriatic Mediterranean. One exhibition and five versions of it, in different locations and territories, to state the concept of a new linguistic Koinè, capable of translating territorial identities into the dynamics of relationship, open-mindedness and comparison.

The artists from different geographical areas, coordinated by a team of curators, headed by the Pino Pascali Museum Foundation, in collaboration with the coordinators of the partner countries, have dealt with such shared topics as stories and narrations, myths and legends, spirituality and religions, migration and nomadism, with the aim to strengthen the idea of a common Europeanness too often forgotten.
