The presentation is going to focus on the development of new models in the residency program in a rural village Llorenc del Penedes in Catalonia. The program was developed by Pau Cata and Aurora Balasch within the context of CeRCCa – Center for Research and Creativity Casamarles (www.casamarles.org). By combining theory and practice, we are going to discuss the implementation of AIR CeRCCa through the Furnish Me! workshop (Summer of 2009) and the residency program of 2010 while reflecting upon CeRRCa in relation to its local context.
The main themes of the lecture are going to be tangible and intangible heritage and their interconnectedness (artistic material and non-material production), participation and withdrawal as simultaneous modes of existence today (audience vs. participation) and translation and untranslatability and their mutual “negotiations” (functionality of art forms today).
The experimental documentary, filmed by Pau Cata as part of his auto-ethnographical and micro-sociological research on CeRCCa in relation to its local context, will serve as a starting point for the discussion on the text “The Practice of Everyday Life” by Michael de Certeau and Arjun Appadurai’s idea on the material construction of locality as a structure of feeling in relation to artistic and curatorial interventions while confronting artistic institutions with its contextuality.
