The Hound of Heaven is Always Watching.


Inauguración: sábado 18 de Febrero de 2017, 19h

While exploring the space of change we find what is constantly inconstant; In Tommy Coleman’s elaborately visually world this inconstant variable stalks, haunts, and taunts you in close quarters without ever showing you its whole being. Coleman’s sculptural and mixed media works weave together fact and fiction- the documentary and the diaristic- to navigate a world of humor and anxiety. How far does the uncanny spiral outward, orbiting, until it finds a brave new dimension ready to welcome it?

Tommy Coleman, a recent MFA graduate of Yale University, is a visual artist originally from Jupiter, Florida and current resident at Homesession in Barcelona, Spain. Coleman also holds a year long residency at the Artha Project in New York City until 2018.

Tommy Coleman is a Florida raised sculptor, painter, and performance artist. Through masterfully crafted objects, and staunchly sincere albeit witty images, Coleman’s work implores investigations of honesty, intimacy, and perceptional break downs which accompany anxiety- all done by way of navigating the boundaries of what is considered permissible. Receiving his BFA from The Cooper Union, and his MFA in sculpture from Yale University, Coleman is a current resident artist for the Artha Project in New York City.

Conquistadores de lo inutil: comme une petite musique de déplacements.



This project, carried out within residence exchange framework between Homesession and art3 (Valence, France) leaded to several events:

At first, I wrote a lot about Barcelona, its architecture, its urban devices, as well as all the people I’ve met since I came here. These notes are the equivalent of a story or a postcard, becoming almost in a love letter to Barcelona. These texts and these notes have been interpreted and sung by a soundtrack that is configured as the Original Soundtrack of the exhibition created in collaboration with Natalia Paez Carrizo and music producer @hugodouster, here in Barcelona.

Conducting a workshop at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, I could also create a video to illustrate some of this soundtrack, like a real trailer for the exhibition. To make this video, I made a small collection of clothing that students who participated in the workshop, gave them life and movement.

These pieces are both costume and scene representation of some of the purposes of the soundtrack. The whole exhibition can be seen as a visual and sound exploration of Barcelona, a kind of itinerant opera karaoke.

Benjamin Collet: artist-in-residence. November/December 2016


Silky unt slimy things (springbreak 2030), Bejamin Collet in collaboration with Anne Renaud, 2014

“Starting from reality I deploy, I assemble and I compare many events and images; how things and images are built up; what they hide and what they mean. Nowadays we are surrounded by an intense images production from whom I don’t know issues and I don’t have any keys to read it.

Lewis Caroll wrote «So, said Alice, if the world has no sense who will stop us to invent one.» Installation and composition interest me a lot in this sense. In addition, poetic and prospective that exist in all things around us allow me to make my own world. I wouldn’t say an isolated world but more a filter or a language through which I can understand, observe and stand my day to day surrounding, a way to « think-with ». I set a display made of tools, materials and features in aim to create speeches, tales and fictions. Combining writing, documentation, archiving as well as sketch, sound and video, my installations are kind of «ideas cases». All those fragments and tracks form/create a kaleidoscopic investigation of our world.”

Tom Holmes. Artist in residence. Dec 2015-Jan 2016


Tom Holmes, in recent residencies has created microcosmic environments that transport him via memory to the countless images that make up one’s visual file. Iconography, rituals and haptic movement across pictorial enlargement bind to the gestures of the body, drawn in a collected abstraction. Objects found right off the shelf, the waste is reused, scanned and intervenes as billboards sized volumes. Hypnosis allows the artist to reach a state of unconsciousness awareness in which the drawing is characterized by a submission of will, that is the act of painting, a transfer of knowledge, memories, and intuition in space consumed by trama, appearing on canvas as new meanings.

A good rule for living in a small space. Luke James

A good rule for living in a small space

The research by the artist Luke James about his residence in Homesession are small actions and the materiality of poetic accidents and alteration of the given space. The meeting and the approach allow us to perceive a series of (in)visible physical changes and somehow get into the layers of the temporary space surface. The micro gestures that the artist proposes are from everyday thoughts, deconstructing an object, knowing its compounds, draw the structure and see the gaps that inhabit the walls.

Laura Llaneli. Exchange Residency en Art3. Noviembre / Diciembre 2015


Proyecto seleccionado para Exchange Residency Program con la  colaboración de Art3 (Valence, Francia)

El proyecto realizado por Laura Llaneli durante su residencia en Art3 toma como punto de partida la pieza Take Five de Paul Desmond interpretada por el The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Llaneli aísla la partitura de la batería y traduce los diversos sonidos en palabras: RIDE, CRASH, GROSSE CAISSE, CAISSE CLAIRE, TOM, TOM BASSE, CHARLES. Con la voz grabada del cantante de hip hop francés Madame Bert y del cantante a capella Christophe, la canción se convierte en una nueva composición donde el ritmo, basado en la pronunciación de las palabras, tiende hacia la poesía.

Este trabajo también muestra cómo las partes de una batería se traducen en diferentes idiomas. Baterías de diferentes partes del mundo como Cataluña, España, Chile, Colombia, Croacia, Alemania, Brasil, Polonia y Canadá han colaborado en grabar sus voces pronunciando estas partes en sus idiomas.

Para la exposición en Francia, la parte visual ha sido creado por el estudio de diseño francés My Name is Weny.

El trabajo de Laura Llaneli (Granada, 1986) se mueve entre la performance y el arte sonoro. Ambos medios son detenidos por el uso de un espacio que no es necesariamente físico o tangible, pero que crea varias situaciones que la artista manipula. Sus proyectos trabajan nociones como la repetición, la simulación de la superficialidad, la alteración, la distorsión y la explosión caótica.


Fragment: Yu-Hang Huang.

Yuhang homesession

“Sometimes, we preserve; we discard, we fetish or we destroy an object because of its association with a moment in our past. No matter how the moment was joyful; hurtful; meaningful or unforgettable, that feeling only turned into fragments of our lives through pieces of objects. In Fragment project, I try to mingle your past and my current turning into something in between.”

From 2008, Yu-Hang Huang has created a series of work by combining performance video and sculpture installation to investigate the notion of “fluidity of identity”, which related to mobility, displacement, and sense of rootless caused by migration.

Huang had lived in North America for nine years before moving back to Taiwan in 2010. She had received numerous grants and exhibited her work internationally including USA, South Korea, Taiwan, Canada and Europe. She is currently in residence at Homesession.
