UNIDEE – Università delle Idee / RESÒ INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR ART RESIDENCIES AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS OPEN STUDIOS 9th November 2016, 6:00 pm at Cittadellarte From September to November 2016
They were asked to deal with the main topics of the UNIDEE programme: research, gift and alteration.
The residencies were conceived and designed according to UNIDEE’s methodology, which combines practice with theory, through workshops, seminars and a series of meetings, studio visits and trips tailored to the interests of each artist.
Kirsten Farrell and Raneem Turjman will present their researchs and ongoing projects on the 9th of November.
The residents were assisted in their research and production of artworks by the UNIDEE – University of Ideas Office (Cecilia Guida, Giulia Crisci and Roberta Bernasconi) and by Art Office (Juan Esteban Sandoval).
Raneem Turjman (1987, Jerusalem) worked on the idea of a distorted selfportrait, starting from her feelings during the residency, looking into the transformative state she found herself in: be it artist, traveller, tourist, or documentarian. She situated herself in different times and spaces and attempt to make sense of the identity changes in each sphere. She worked on a short video, gathering together her own visions of the place along with others’ perception of herself.
