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.
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
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.

This project begins with a distribution of pamphlets:
WE OFFER INTERVENTIONS FOR HOMES
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.
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.
