The inhabitant of the floor above (curated by V. Valentini)

 

Format:  14,5 x 21 cm. 20 page. Black & White.
Language: English

A publication and reading of 1+ 8 fiction short-stories

Veronica Valentini is an independent curator currently living in Barcelona. In the framework of the InvitedOneDay programme hosted at Homesession, she collaborated with artists from both Barcelona and the international scene on this very specific project, which propones a collaborative drift from a narrative that Valentini initially wrote. This starting point aimed at challenging the domestic context of the programme, making of a strange situation a possibility for further fictions. The different textual forms that arise from this work and that were read or performed during a presentation night, are gathered in this book designed by Luca Bendandi.

Artists: Audrey Cottin, Julia Gorostidi, Daniel Jacoby, Tamara Kuselman, Gabriel Péricas, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Ryan Rivadeneyra, Oriol Vilanova.
