Le Ville Matte constitute a network of artist residencies promoted by the Province of Cagliari, in collaboration with the municipalities of Villasor, Teulada and Orroli. Focusing the attention on the continuous evolution of artistic languages and on the need for artists to experiment and relate, the Province of Cagliari promotes study and research residencies in territories that share valuable environmental and landscape features, and fosters new productions in the field of music, writing and visual arts, as well as promoting an exchange between artists and the territory.
Seven artists will be selected for the second edition of the residency program LE VILLE MATTE – Performance Art, taking place in Sardinia in the town of Villasor.
The residency program aim to create a group of National and International artists and to offer them, for one month, space to develop their activity and material for their work and research.
During the residency, the artists will be coordinated by a visiting professor, who will guide them in their study and in the discussion of ideas, encouraging critical interpretation of the work and providing support in their research. The theme of the residency 2011 will be: KRISIS, Crisis of art and Art of crisis. The partecipating artists will propose their own research paths to work on, based on the proposed theme (see Program). The residency will end with a final show and with a publication, documenting the works produced during the training and research period.
