BAROQUE BLUE - Ionian Art Residency & Wild Experience

A sensory journey in the past and return to future

SEPTEMBER 2021

Santa Caterina di Nardò (Lecce, Italy)

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.

EGIBILITY AND PURPOSE: 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. 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.

DATES: The residency art program has a total duration of 11 days (10 nights) in September 2021.

WHERE: Santa Caterina di Nardò, it is an Ionian seaside place in the province of Lecce.  It was born as a defensive outpost against Saracen attacks. There are, in fact, two 16th century watchtowers, placed in an elevated position above the sea, built by the Spaniards, to counter the Ottoman raids. The coast is jagged with stretches of rock and sand. The sea is blue flag in the Southern of Italy.

HOUSING IN THE VILLA: Participants will have the opportunity to live in the same villa and each in their own apartment equipped with kitchen and all necessary supplies. The accommodation has many common areas such as the living room (headquarters), the patio, the solarium, the terrace and the garden surrounded by a pine forest of over 1000sqm  for a pleasant and stimulating stay.

WORKS IN SITU: Each day artists will work in a different landscape and they will have enough time to get involved with each scenario.  Beaches, pine forests, rocks, towers, ancient hypogea and sunsets over the sea, offer moments to relax, to meditate and experience a deep contact with yourself. Past and future will be mixed as pigments of a visionary picture to drawing every day.

VISITING CURATOR: 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.

SPIRIT OF THE EVENT: 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.

ART PROGRAM: BAROQUE BLUE is mainly based on supporting and stimulating creative processes through a full immersion program in nature and art, a seductive isolation from contemporary frenzy. During the days of art residency and work, we will make visit tours to get to know the wonders of Santa Caterina and villages in the surrounding area (archeological, cultural sites and places of contemporary art  galleries and museums).

PREVENTIVE MEASURE: As the situation is evolving around the world, we want to reassure you that nothing is more important to us than your safety and health. For this, we are working closely with our partners to help them implement the latest government guidance on cleanliness and hygiene. In SEPTEMBER 2021, the Italian vaccination campaign should be largely completed and ensure safety for those arriving in Italy.
