Practicing the Object.
Give me an (art)object so I can find my position and continue to move
Mentor: Daria Filardo
Guest: Fatma Bucak
Where: Cittadellarte, Biella
Could an art object ethically contribute to the composition of the public space and to the definition of single and collective identities?
The module intends art as the device and the terrain where autobiographical identity negotiates its position and relation with others, where borders incessantly touch, fuse, intertwine and separate.
In practicing the diverse possibilities of the art object (through case studies, experiments, analyses and production) mentor and participants will be working – in a peer-to-peer relation – on the open definition of singular and collective identities that are shaped in a continuous collision of borders between art and spectator.
The (art)object is considered as a possibility of an ethical participation to the construction of a public space, and in this sense the experience at Cittadellarte-Pistoletto Foundation will give the group a very unique context of historical density and future development as art citizens. The final experience – a space, a performance, journal/log, a record or everything all together – will register the seismographic activity and relations between (art)objects and subjects involved.
Daria Filardo is an art historian and independent curator based in Florence. Her curatorial practice focuses on the research of an autobiographical position which is built in experience. She is Professor of Contemporary Practices at the SACI Master Program in Studio Art in Florence and tutor of the MFA students' artistic practice. She also teaches Visual Art and coordinates the Final Project at the Master course of IED, Florence.
