From 13 of February to the 19th of April, I will be in residency with Antonio Contador at Lindre-Basse residency.
Cac-Synagogue de Delme, in close collaboration with the commune of Lindre-Basse and the Lorraine Regional Natural Park, has been running a programme of artist residencies in the former presbytery of Lindre-Basse.
With an exhibition at Galerie Karima Célestin in Marseilles and artistic residencies at Gasworks & Open School East in London, and Model / Project Radio in Leeds, Contador and Cruz’s project Finding Money has been shown in different angles: walks, performances, radio broadcasting, seminars, publications. Now, the artists in residence at Lindre-Basse will lead the project to a completely different phase. Titled “the wish”, this phase will honor the popular custom of the votive offering.
When we decided to have a family break in Brazil last year we couldn’t foresee the political upheaval the country is facing today. A trip that was planned around visiting friends and learning more about community-based cultural projects has become an even more opportune moment to follow my desire to better understand the role culture plays in democratic processes. Between the 16th of October and the 13th of November I visited artists and activists operating in Recife – PE, an occupied cinema, an artist-run space, and a state led community project. The impressions these encounters have left on me is what I am making public and open to conversation at What Happen To Us.
