Title:
dystopian work-place sculpture garden

Author:
ericaferrari

Description:
a site, a shelter, a work-place - I thought of a space of production, observation and exchange formed by two levels of interaction: Solo and Platform. The Solo level will consist of a series of open niches encased in façade canvas in different arrangements. The canvas will be used as a repository of current reference material: daily impressions of social network posts such as the assimilation of instantaneous memory of relevant subjects (political, aesthetic, social). This accumulation of information will be the basis for creating work spaces within these niches. Equipped with tables, tools and molding material, in the workspaces will be encouraged the discussion and creation of possible monuments of today, with the intention of rethinking the memories dissipated by social networks to the historical cut implicit in them. The idea is to think sculptural practice through the body and the critical translation of reality into a work. The garden of sculptures produced can go up to the Platform, configuring an open exhibition space. Seminars, talks and the observation of the landscape can also take place at Platform, as part of the hole installation. As a direct reference to the work, we have the arrangement of archaeological sites, as a dystopian image of the future through the present. This is a project for a public work. It can be assemble in a park or it can developed in a long time experience inside the art studio.
