Meanwhile news on other projects: click on the derive icon for further developments in Eduardo Cachucho’s Derive “urban exploration app”. Eduardo has been opening up the source code of the application making it available to all and eventually also open to personal interpretations and customisations.

“Dérive is a randomly generated way to explore a city. Influenced by the Situationist movement, it is meant to aid city-dwellers in finding new and un-charted areas of their city.” Eduardo Cachucho

Here is the flyer for the CO-LAB event organised by Nicoletta Daldanise this Sunday the 18 September in Palazzo Ferrero, Biella…

Flyer designed by Olga Karyakina to be folded into the classic origami form we all remember from our childhood.

Above are some of the points of contact and research Nicoletta has made for another project she is working on regarding the Biellese territorry.

news from last year’s UNIDEE

Cittadellarte’s decade-long collaboration with illy revolves around UNIDEE and its annual International Residency Programme. Every year illy invites the UNIDEE artists to take part in a design competition. The 2010 winner whose design was chosen to go into production is Cameroonian artist Alioum Moussa and above is his winning design for the illy coffee can.

Alioum has now been invited to design the outfits for Galleria illy’s attendants.  In a development of his UNIDEE residency project, Moussa will use second-hand clothes (originally sent to Africa by Europe), hand embroidery and a touch of graphic design to create unique pieces of art.

threads, wools and textiles…

In the studio Ekaterina Kravtsova is making a work for the forthcoming Friday in F.R.A.C. show (Friday 23 September):

Kate has collected old clothes from local people she has known during the residency along with personal stories and memories related to those objects. Inspired by an ancient weaving technique, used in Russia to create carpets, she has shredded these clothes and  reassembled them in the form of mountains, a favourite place for the Biellese…

MEANWHILE…

Karolina Rychlik has been knitting In the Giardini in front of Esselunga in the centre of Biella for a period of time daily, all this week. She has been inviting passers by to stop and knit with her for a while and to help her create a textile that she will use in a dance performance as part of the Co-Lab event this 18 September in Palazzo Ferrero, Biella.

plans for F.R.A.C.

The next event by UNIDEE in collaboration with FRAC will soon be upon us (Friday 23 September to be precise!), with this in mind Aastha and Rapha are collaborating with a street art collective from Turin…

“In conversation with Matteo Ferraresi and Eugenio Dragoni of URBE, Tornio (http://streetarto.com/tag/via-foggia-28/), we spent the day scouting for possible walls, spaces and concepts for the upcoming collaborative curation for the FRAC exhibition.”
