Curated by Primo Piano LivinGallery

With this project Primo Piano LivinGallery, is investigating various fields of exploration, which conceive exhibition and creative planning as a device capable of triggering short circuits, involving communities and artists, activating virtuous relationships between disciplines and knowledge. The art project philosophy engaging in loose reflections ranging from a symbiotic man-nature relationship to the respect for biodiversity, to the concept of travel as an experience and union of styles, cultures, tradition and visions.

Artists working with any media are welcome.  We look for works with an organic and plural aesthetics identity which tell a story of quality, reviling portions of nature, through reinterpreting and regenerating with the concept and expressive style of the artists.

Santa Caterina di Nardò, it is an Ionian seaside place in the province of Lecce.  The artists will be hosted in a sea view Villa with private and/or shared room/bathroom. During the days of residence, excursions and guided tours will be organized to get to know the place and the surrounding areas.The artists will receive the material /stuff to work on site and according to the type of project, they will be able to request other necessary material. Each day artists will work in a different landscape and they will have enough time to get involved with each scenario. 

BAROQUE BLUE, hosts the curator Dores Sacquegna, whose her role is to help the artists in their sensory experience of the environment. Each one will have individual feedback and all together will participate in round tables. Works made during the residency (including audio, video and photographic testimonies), can be used in projects of future exhibitions organized by Primo Piano and documented in the catalog with critical review by curator. By tapping into the intrinsic intelligence, design and beauty of nature, artists return home as stewards of ecology, stimulated to protect and educate others with their work.

Primo Piano Art Residency constitute an alternative educational program for independent artists to work in a community of peers who share a unique and rich in history environment. Our goal is to provide artists with a variety of stimulating experiences with which they can conceive new projects or deepen established creative practices.
