RESILIENCIAS, #10 public squares, 10 actions, 10 hours > Blanca (E) 2017

Residency in AADK Spain

In May 2017 I spent one month at the Centro Negra in Blanca, small creative city of the community of Murcia, welcomed by AADK Spain [Aktuelle Architektur Der Kultur] directed by Abraham Hurtado and Elena Azzedín. The quality of public spaces drove me to cartography the area with social behaviours repeated in time.

The final presentation took the form of a performative parcours on 10 public squares associated with 10 verbs of action, during 10 heures, inspired by the book Histoires de gestes, ouvrage collective work under the direction of Marie Glon and Isabelle Launay, Actes Sud 2012.
