Submissions should focus on the dialogue between human beings and nature so as to create an artistic Land Art itinerary in the area.
Enclave Land Art will select seven projects from different artistic disciplines that will be developed and produced in the natural environment during the two weeks of the Art Residency, sharing experiences, ideas and a common goal.
All projects must take into consideration people’s interest in contemporary arts, aiming to give greater value to the area of Vall de Gallinera, promoting a deep and permanent conscience about the historical, cultural and traditional aspects of the territory through a dialogue between art and nature.
CONCEPT: “Truly memory does not consist at all of a regression from the present to the past, but rather in a progress from the past to the present” (Bergson H., Matter and Memory, 2006).
Residency period: From the 22nd of November until the 5th of December included. Projects will be presented to the public on the 4th and the 5th of December 2021.
