FRAC matters

The UNIDEE residents are a busy lot, as well as working on their own individual and collaborative projects, there are several other group events throughout the 4 month residence for which they are also making new works. For example, there is a lot of extra activity this week as the first of two UNIDEE interventions in the FRAC space will open this friday… (see invitation above) The event Friday in F.R.A.C. is being organised by Nicoletta Daldanise, It will feature works/performances by Cai Weidong, Eduardo Cachucho, Olga Karyakina and Özgür Demirci.

remida and presentations

The first few weeks of the residency are very busy as presentations by the residents and the offices of Cittadellarte need to be made, it feels like a very intensive period but in the end 4 months is not such a long time, so it is important that work is contextualised as soon as possible.

A visit to the ReMida office where Sylvie Calmon introduced the project:

ReMida is a cultural project initiated in Reggio Emilia in 1996 to promote a new way of considering ecology through giving value to waste as objects that may be useful for living a creative and educational experience in full respect of the environment.  Read more about Remida here

 presentation from Cittadellarte Communication office

In the afternoon presentations by residents, Karolina Rychlik (dancer/choreographer), Mathew Mazzotta (artist), Nicoletta Daldanise (curator) and Ibrahim Jawabreh.
