From July 14th to 25th, 2013, EXCHANGE Live Art receives a scholarship residence in Sierra Art Center in Huelva (Spain). The resident artists are the managers of the project: Isabel Leon and Ana Matey. In this occasion we conducted an investigation about sharing our own creative processes.
We also invite PatriciaCabrero and Sebastian Asioli, artists belonging to the collective Enclave, for exchanging scores of actions.
Finally, we performed a work in which we engage the population of Santa Ana la Real. This action was presented during a public exhibition organized in Sierra:
Procession of the Holy Sofa
Performance along with Ana Matey within EXCHANGE Project. Artist residency at Sierra Art Centre (Huelva). July, 2013.
For this action, we presented a work that we developed during the first week in Sierra. We were collecting quotes from the people of Santa Ana La Real. We asked them to complete the sentence “I fancy …”
The day of the show we invited attendees to participate in a procession from the house to the Sierra shed where we were working throughout the residence. Once there, we read the quotes collected whilst we performed spontaneous micro actions involving two elements we worked with during our residence: buckets with water and balloons.
