Artist talk and networking in Tuluá 9 de Abril

tulua charla

On Wednesday I was invited to give a talk in Tuluá, a town about two hours form Cali in the Cauca Valley, Colombia. The idea was to share my work and the concepts behind 34South|61North with local artists, musicians and actors. This was to open up a debate on how to improve networking between artists in Tuluá with the eventual goal of opening an arts centre in the town. Once the space is opened the artists will encourage local youths to pursue creative pastimes instead of entering into crime and repeating the town’s violent history.

The residents were happy to have me there as they want to organise exchanges with international artists who can bring different perspectives to the arts in the town and forge cultural interchanges. Over the next months I will be assisting with ideas, information and contacts.

Next Monday I will be giving a talk at the University here in Medellin. I will be talking about my work 34South|61North and how my residency is affecting the project.

In the days that follow (12-13th) I’m leading a workshop for three afternoons. The workshop will be led in conjunction with the performance group El Cuerpo Habla. Contact me or C3P for more information.

Arrival- Casa Tres Patios, Medellín

Since leaving Sustainable Bolivia in early November i’ve been on a fast paced journey through Peru and Ecuador and some of Colombia to finally reach Medellín. I will be staying here and working as a resident artist at Casa Tres Patios until the end of February.

This residency is at a crucial time as geographically and potentially time wise is the half way moment in 34South|61North. It is also a time of change, signifying the end to my prolonged stay in the Andean region.

I’m reflecting on all the good, bad, busy, crazy, creative, stressful and joyful times that have filled up the last three months and am using  these contemplations to ignite new ideas in my practice, influencing the direction in which it will move.

On the 10th of Feburary i’ll be giving a talk at the University of Antioquia here in Medellín about my practice and why I’m traveling over two continents as an investigation of artistic practices and a development of my own work. This talk will be a couple of days before I being a run a workshop held over three afternoons at C3P. It will run with the assistance of El Cuerpo Habla, a performative based collective made up by students of Fine Art and Dance and lectures form the university. Times and dates to come.

I’m using the month here to re-consider how I’ve been working with objects and space. This is regarding the use of my own body in public and private spaces and my use of found and wast objects. I’m interested about how I can bring the two elements together so that they work simultaneously or become the same thing.

The residency will finish with an  exhibition that will include a performative installation work. I’m looking at how I can change the garden, hallways, entrance and street outside Casa Tres Patios over the course of a day.

An investigation during the residency of the subtleties of objects and how they bring a new essence to a place  will be presented during the exhibition.

I’m interested in how my physical condition will change as the day of the show and installation of the work wears on and how the audience will react to what I’m doing and making.
