Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

What Makes this event different?

Unlike other residences, BAROQUE BLUE, together with the participants, 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. During this period, conferences, live performances and interactive workshops will be held to discuss contemporary issues relating to the visual art sector and the creative industry (cultural appropriation etc.).

HOW DOES IT WORKS: The residency call is open to artists, architects, designers, performers, musicians, writers, who will be able to apply individually or in multidisciplinary groups.
THE PLACE - Santa Caterina, is an Ionian seaside place in the province of Lecce (Salento, Italy). 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 clean and blue flag in the south of Italy. It is not far from the towns of Lecce, Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca.
ARTISTIC RESIDENCE: The artistic residence, an ideal and often idyllic place, becomes a fundamental stop for artists, who want to seek a new inspiration for their art, to live a unique experience that allows them to get in touch with nature and with other artists. The residence offers a stay of research, study and relax in an area rich in history and culture in which the landscape and architectural wonders encourage and stimulate new creative productions. The villas hosting the participants - not far from each other – both are located in the naturalistic context of Santa Caterina, a few hundred meters from the sea and city center.
DATES: The residency art program has a total duration of 14 nights (From June 23 to July 7, 2020), with the possibility of participating even for just one week (from June 23 to 30 or from June 30 to July 7). Participants will have the opportunity to live in the same living spaces, cook together and live the experience of total art. All the services are available in the villa for a pleasant and stimulating stay.
CURATOR: Unlike other residences, BAROQUE BLUE, together with the participants, 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.  All participants will receive the Certificate of Participation.
ART PROGRAM: BAROQUE BLUE is mainly based on supporting and stimulating creative processes through a full immersion in nature and art, a seductive isolation from contemporary frenzy. The artists will be able to conceive and create their works freely (with free theme) and site specific in the natural environment as Land Art projects or other with events open to the local community.
EXCURSIONS: An eco-sustainable itinerary between art and nature, for an authentic contact between people and places. Participants have the oportunity to explore fascinating places and live in close contact with the surrounding environment, but also to relax in the fresh waters of Salento, without sacrificing work and / or conviviality with other guests. A series of sustainable excursions will alternate between paths in the countryside, dry stone walls, paths between straw and olive trees, visits to marine museums, karst caves, ancient villas, historic centers, urban, ancient oil mills and hypogea, Byzantine crypts and much more .
PUBLICATION & REPORT: During the residency, all photographic, audio and video material will be collected and a multisensory catalog can be created and published on the Primo Piano Special Project website as an interactive map and documentation also for other participants. The residence and its participants will be advertised and channeled through press releases to newspapers and magazine. Complimentary press kit.
