INSTABILITY AND PRECARIOUSNESS

Call for Exhibition

FREE ENTRY

Photographers are invited to submit 1 to 3 photos addressing the theme.

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. March 2021

 

Instability and precariousness are concepts that characterize the modern era. The way we experience everyday life responds to a consumerist logic. This logic sees the precariousness of the state of things as urgency in seizing or abandoning the useful object that meets our needs. It's the same for what we now call "relational consumerism".

Instability refers to the idea of precarious balance that concerns every type of physical, physiological / corporal and mental structure. The psychic and emotional sphere is therefore also taken into consideration in the contemplation of the concept of instability: instability understood as an anomaly of temper due to excessive receptivity for impulses of an affective or instinctive order, and characterized by frequent changes in mood and emotional state.

LIVE WORKS vol 8

LIVE WORKS Vol.8

OPEN CALL

a project by Centrale Fies

deadline 30th April 2020

curated by Barbara Boninsegna and Simone Frangi
with Mentor 2020 Krystel Khoury

 

Since its creation, Live Works has been conceived as a gathering of living bodies as well as a moment of strong proximity allowing forms of collective intelligence and commons of competences to emerge.

The current sanitary crisis imposes physical distancing upon us and creates deep uncertainty in how to imagine our futures together and the shape this togetherness could eventually take. 

In this evolving situation, Centrale Fies cannot be sure whether Live Works will be able to exist in its original form in July 2020 or if it will have to manifest itself differently. 

In response to the precariousness of our shared condition and out of the will to take responsibilities towards the artists who have been applying to Live Works Vol. 8, the curatorial team has decided to pursue the preparation of the forthcoming eighth edition of the program, baring in mind the potential need of rethinking the boundaries of its format. 

The deadline for applying to Live Works is therefore extended till 30th April 2020. 

The selected artists will be notified by the end of May and will be taking part actively in discussing with the curatorial team the eventual transformations Live Works Vol. 8 will have to go through in case enacting a collective experience this summer becomes impossible.

According to the future possibilities of our mobility and bodily co-existence, the selected artists and the curators will find together the best ways to develop Live Works Vol. 8, its research and production residency, its free school featuring critical and feedback sessions as well as its live program. 

Barbara Boninsegna, Simone Frangi, Krystel Khoury

Prizes Details: 

For each selected project will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00: € 1.000,00 of this budget will be used for the production of the performance, € 500,00 will be assigned as a fee for the artistic work.

Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies (maximum of € 500,00 per project) and will provide accommodation and food services for the whole residency period.
The budget of € 1.500,00 will be entirely corresponded at the beginning of the residency: all the information will be send after the selection announcement.

Simone Frangi (researcher, writer and curator)

Mentoring 2020 Krystel Khoury

Created in 2013 by Centrale Fies, in collaboration with Viafarini, LIVE WORKS is a platform dedicated to live contemporary practices that contribute to deepening and broadening the idea of performance, following the current evolution of performance and its styles.

LIVE WORKS Vol. 8

The open call LIVE WORKS includes a creative residency period, for nine selected projects. LIVE WORKS sees performance as a work space, and as an instrument and cultural exercise.

Starting from the notion of performance in the visual art practice, the project is unique in its particular attention to hybrid research, underlining the openness and fluidity of performance, its social and political implications and its level of public understandability. The announcement is open to a wide range of performative actions, also including sound and new media arts, text-based performances, lecture performances, multimedia storytelling, choreographic practices, relational and workshop-based projects, and other projects questioning the idea of performativity beyond the body.

Artists and professionals from any geographic location and with no limits on age can enter the announcement, as individuals or in groups, with a single project. The open call only accepts unpublished or long-term projects that need to be developed and/or concluded, for which participation would represent an evolution of the project or it’s final chapter.

The nine projects, selected by LIVE WORKS, will be invited to participate in a production residency at Centrale Fies from the 6th to the 27th July 2020:

6th  July: arrival day

7th   -23rd   July: research and production residency, Free School of Performance

24th  -25th  -26th  July: live presentations within the performing arts Festival Drodesera
27th July: final collective meeting

The production of the performance projects during the residency will be supported by diverse types of curatorship, from theoretical to technical development, a Free School of Performance with Studio visit, critical session and reading group. 

During the residency phase, Centrale Fies will provide a production and curatorial staff to assist the artists as they develop the selected projects. The residency phase is an essential part of the development of the selected projects and it’s consider as mandatory.

The performances produced will be presented during the 40th edition of the Drodesera Festival of Performing Arts (24th, 25th, 26st July 2020). During each evening a program of  established guest artists will be presented alongside the projects of the 9 finalists.
 

On this occasion, the nine winning projects will be seen and discussed by a board of international professionals, working for festivals, institutions, residencies and production programs that sustain and produce research in performance. The board will be actively involved in public and private meetings with the nine artists.

For Live Works vol. 8  the guest board of professionals is composed by:

Cédric Fauq (Curator, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, England);

Inga Lāce (Curator, Latvian Center Contemporary Art, Riga, Latvia);

Mathilde Villeneuve (Artistic Leader, Kunstencentrum BUDA, Kotrijk, Belgium);

Daniel Blanga Gubbay (Artistic Co-director, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Bruxelles, Belgium);

Vincent van Velsen (Co-curator, Sonsbeek 2020/2024, Arnhem, Netherlands)

Prizes Details: 

For each selected project will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00: € 1.000,00 of this budget will be used for the production of the performance, € 500,00 will be assigned as a fee for the artistic work.
