Tadáskía, artist in residence January-February 2022

Tadáskía
Born in 1993 in Rio de Janeiro. Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
Formerly known as max wíllà morais, she is an artist, trans, and a writer. Her universe of imagination is backed by visible and invisible things. Whether in drawings, photographs, installations, textile works, or apparitions, Tadáskía establishes a relationship with the matter that can arise from the encounter, creating Afro-diasporic imaginations and syncretic spirituality around her. In her drawings of volatile and sensitive qualities, often made with simple materials, such as nail polish and colored pencils, live groupings that are sometimes complementary, sometimes dissident. On the surfaces that are cut and torn, the artist suggests other notions of time and space in the face of binarisms, also presenting questions in the fields of form, line, and color.
Tadáskía has earned a degree in visual arts from the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ, 2016) and is pursuing a master’s degree in education from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ, 2019-2021). She is also a fellow at the School of Visual Arts Parque Lage (EAV Parque Lage, 2014 and 2019). She took part in exhibitions including Casa Carioca (Museu de Arte do Rio de Janeiro, 2020-21), curated by Joice Berth and Marcelo Campos; Esqueleto (Paço Imperial, Rio de Janeiro, 2019-2020), curated by Analu Cunha, Marcelo Campos and Maurício Castro; and Estopim e segredo (EAV Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, 2019-2020), curated by Gleyce Kelly Heitor, Ulisses Carrilho, and Clarissa Diniz. She held a duo exhibition with Leonilson at the Auroras art space (São Paulo, 2020). More recently, Tadáskía has taken part in the exhibition Hábito/Habitante (EAV Parque Lage, 2021), curated by Ulisses Carrilho; and the collective exhibition Uma história natural das ruínas (Pivô, São Paulo, 2021), curated by Catalina Lozano.

Del otro lado / en la sombra del mastodonte

25 noviembre de 18 a 21h

La artista en su paso por Homesession aborda de frente el proyecto de larga duración “Del Otro Lado”, dotándolo de un cuerpo flexible.

El punto de partida del proyecto es el encuentro-diálogo con el conjunto patrimonial de Can Ricart en Poblenou (Bcn), explorado durante varias residencias artísticas, realizadas a partir del 2012, en Hangar y Jiwar, que se ha materializado a lo largo de los años en vídeos, fotos, acciones y dibujos que dan testimonio de la transformación que está sufriendo.
El espacio de Homesession se convierte en un laboratorio de reflexión, experimentación y exposición que pretende desbordar sus muros y conectarse con el contexto urbano.


Un nuevo encuentro provocador, diez años después, con un edificio mastodóntico en construcción, que enmascara y cubre el sitio patrimonial de Can Ricart como una espada de Damocles que anuncia un ataque ineludible, desencadena la necesidad urgente de la artista de exponer “la vida” del sitio que logró captar puntualmente y en la que se inspiró.

La exposición en Homesession, al final de dos meses de residencia, trata de dar cuerpo a esta obra polimorfa de larga duración y hacer que cuente una historia cuyo final sólo puede ser abierto y mutable: la historia de un lugar y de un cuerpo en continua evolución en un “pas de deux”.

Exposición Jeanne Varaldi: URBAN TRACKS, 27.07

URBAN TRACKS

Jeanne Varaldi

27/07/2021 _ 18-21H

Urban Tracks

Urban lines are curved, straight, sinuous, perpendicular. They structure the plan and organize the space. They frame the itinerary. They measure, calculate and regulate. Urban exploration opens up a completely different path: when the city takes shape in front of our eyes, the itinerary is deviated and the experience is sensitive. The city comes to life and the plan is distorted. From these sensitive uses, new lines and paths are emerging.

A reflection on the map as well as a tribute to construction zones, Jeanne Varaldi’s installation reflects her urban exploration during her residency at Homesession. The materials used echo construction sites: tarp, spray paint and fiberglass. On the floor, pieces of walls that were collected directly from the city give an archaeological tone to the room. The installation plays on different scales: the macro scale of the map, which is hand-drawn on the tarp, and the scale of the construction site, which is one of continuous transformation. The fixed and organized image of the map is dropped to show a city in perpetual transformation.

Jeanne Varaldi, a visual artist based in Paris, is the artist seleccionated for a 1 month residency during July 2021. She uses construction materials to challenge the urban fabric: pieces of plaster, granite, concrete or wood are collected and reassembled with pigmented cement, straps or coloured ropes. These installations enhance the texture and uneven shapes of urban fragments. The city becomes a playground for experimentation and regeneration. The viewer is confronted with new landscapes, in which construction materials become precious and secret resources. Jeanne Varaldi also creates murals that transform the public space through abstract patterns and pastel colors.

STEFAN LUKIC´: ARTIST IN RESIDENCY IN JUNE 2021

STEFAN LUKIC´: ARTIST IN RESIDENCY IN JUNE 2021

Stefan Lukić (Serbia) in residency in Homesession during June 2021, in collaboration with Belgrade AIR.

Stefan Lukić (born 1985) is a Serbian visual artist whose vision is to record the universal state of being in transit, migration, and while on the road. He is intrigued by travellers and eyewitnesses and so he presents them through his art. Roads, distances, and we as travellers become the connection between places, ideas and people.

Paintings of Stefan Lukić almost allways speak about the proces of seraching, and tranistion points – expresing the feelings of constant flux, moving that never ends. He reminds us that it is all about the journey , and not about the destination. He values the wanderings on the road, and less the final goal. In his paintings you’ll find how we are seeking, and not what we are seeking.

Stefan Lukić graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade in 2018. He spent his third year of Bachelor studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris (ENSBA). He is currently a student of Master studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. He attended the Masterclass at the Royal Academy in Amsterdam (Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten) in 2019. He received the Award for Best Painter of the Year by the Faculty of Applied Arts  in 2016. He has had several solo exhibitions, including: “Interspace” at U10 Art Space, YUGOnostalgia at the Užice National Theater, Obverse and Reverse at the National Museum in Kragujevac. He has exhibited in group shows in Paris, Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš and Kragujevac amongst others. He’s currently living and working in Belgrade.

Karl Philips: artist in residency during March and April 2021

Karl Philips (Belgium) in residency in Homesession during March and April 2021.

Karl Philips is a Belgian artist for whom a mild kind of activism is inextricably linked to his work. With his ‘performing art’, he explores the distinctions between public and non-public, common- and underground, ‘us’ and ‘them’. To capture and represent his actions, Philips uses various disciplinary methods, often assembled into one (unconventional) monumental installation, where he flirts with the boundaries of what is possible or even legal. His work is the result of the interconnectedness of his practice and way of life – for Karl Philips, art is never non-committal.

Francisco Navarrete Sitjà empieza su residencia en art3

El artista ha empezado su residencia de dos meses en art3 (Valence, Francia) en remoto, la residencia terminará en en enero 2021.

Navarrete Sitja es un artista investigador cuyo trabajo involucra específicamente la relación entre representación, territorio, naturaleza y materialidades no-humanas que se manifiestan en múltiples ambientes socio-ecologicos, abordando cuestiones desde el paisaje hasta las expectativas en relación con la construcción de identidad. Trabaja combinando diferentes expresiones de lenguaje visual, archivos, documentación legal, gráficos, videos de animación, paisajes sonoros e imágenes contemporáneas a través de diferentes estrategias, formas y medios.Su trabajo aborda las narrativas hegemónicas de los imaginarios territoriales y sentidos simbólicos atribuidos a las materialidades que articulan esos imaginarios.

Su intención es interrogar la historicidad de diferentes contextos geográficos, explorando las relaciones instrumentales que subyacen en ellos. Ha trabajado con comunidades que comparten recuerdos y desequilibrios debido al extractivismo, la despoblación y la crisis climática, entre otros.
