Project Statement

For me, an artistic residence experience is an opportunity to think, rethink and produce works in an unusual or unfamiliar place. The contact with new landscapes, cultures and other peoples points of view are, certainly, elements that can enrich the production of an art work. For this Residency Programme I am proposing a project connected with my own personal experience in Leitrim Sculpture Centre and its neighbourhood.

Project I
Structures to experience some chosen places in Leitrim [from outside places] Starting from daily hiking, I intend to detect sites where I can install a structure that will attempt to occupy, understand or bespeak some aspect of that particular place. The idea for these structures can be suggest by the place itself, by photos collected from daily walking or by the raw material (the remains or the ruins of uninhabited buildings, old furniture, discarded materials) that might be found or donated.

The structures must remain (if possible) in the sites where they were produced. The intention is to give a public use to those structures. This project arose from the perception of how people, using simple structures, could adapt the environment for their needs.

Simplicity will be the main character of the structures of this project. They will probably be related to the process of observing and the way we connect with the landscape. For this reason, all structures will be built on
the outside, in public spaces.

Project I - some sketches personal photo collection of simple structures

Project II
Structures to experience some choseN places in Leitrim [from private places] This project begins with a distribution of pamphlets:

The interventions will be free Contemporary Artworks installed in your home.

People interested to participate in this project have to contact the pamphlet e-mail to to book a visit in their homes.

Online it will be possible to see some examples of interventions without explaination of the concept. The intention is that
people realize the concept of interventions during the process of a structures creation. The residents of the houses will be invited to participate in this process.

All the interventions have to be produced inside people houses, it haS to be reversible (the appropriate locations can easily return to original appearance) and it will be constructed as simple structures that can become devices to experiencing new ways for people used those familiar places. Or, this structures will remain and will be held by houses residents.

The End
Without apparent function, the “Structures to experience some chose places in Leitrim” will be able to be the final product of my adaptation process to an unfamiliar and new place. As closure of that process, I would like to present an “exhibition” with a map that will allow the people to visit, on a day or period (a weekend or a saturday
afternoon), all the structures produced during the residency.
