BORDERS | Venice May-Nov 2020
ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
Deadline: April 19, 2020

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and Ca’ Zanardi, is pleased to announce the open call for BORDERS – ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.

BORDERS, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, will be presented in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and in other prestigious venues between May 28 and November 27, 2020 in the same period of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale “How will we live together?”, chaired by Paolo Baratta and curated by architect and scholar Hashim Sarkis.

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the man and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities and exchange possibilities, instead of being social barriers.

BORDERS Festival consists of 3 main events:

– BODIES+CITIES SKIN from May 28 to July 10, 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from May 29 to July 10, 2020 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi

The festival also aims to discover the interpretations of borders between built and unbuilt geographical contexts, the complex spatial mechanisms within contemporary cities and territories, to understand these underlying cultural philosophical, political and aesthetic value systems that influence the production of architectural form. The investigation concerns not just territories’ borders: the festival focuses on the design and the construction strategies applied to the contemporary “skin and bones” architecture, on the thin surface that divides and connects the inner places with the outer spaces, from the single buildings to the huge metropolis’ borderline.

Deadline for applications April 19, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)

Fantastic Beings: Body Sculpting & Assemblage Workshop

In the Fantastic Beings workshop, Spanish multidisciplinary artist Iria Do Castelo will teach you how to build a human-like sculpture using plaster bandages, homemade paper mache, clay and found objects. The workshop is designed to give an opportunity to participants to improve their creative process and explore new paths of sculpture and assemblage together with an established artist.

The workshop is suitable for anyone, artist or not, from 18 and above. All materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring along curious objects that they may wish to incorporate into their sculptures. Registration is required.

SomoS presents the Fantastic Beings workshop that is held by Iria do Castelo as a way to highlight the imaginative opportunities that are possible when sculpture, assemblage and the body come together. Inspired by Gothic art, eroticism, dreams and the dark depths of the human psyche, in her own work, do Castelo creates perverse and disruptive settings in which sculpture draws on emotion rather than formal rules. What often emerges from do Castelo’s creative process are fantastical creatures that bear resemblance to human figures. With do Castelo as a guide and teacher, participants of the Fantastic Beings workshop will be led to replicate their own bodies, transforming their moulds into new non-human, biomorphic compositions with the aid of assemblage techniques.
The possibilities are infinite.

Fantastic Beings workshop
Saturday-Sunday, December 7-8, 10am-6pm
60 euros for both days, including material (can bring additional objects)
Language : English

The workshop is open to anyone, artist or not, from 18 years and above. Please register by sending an email to somos@somos-arts.org

Deadline December 1st
