ANNUAL COLLABORATIVE ACTIVITY between CAN SERRAT and THE LOCAL CATALAN CONTEXT
Each year, Can Serrat invites someone from the art and research world working in the Catalan region to follow the residency in order to carry out a project in relation to the program within the context of its environment. In 2018, Can Serrat invited Nyamnyam (an artist collective run by Ariadna Rodríguez and Iñaki Álvarez) to collaborate and organize the annual activity on May 12, 2019.
Nyamnyam proposes to develop a collaboration with Can Serrat, selected visual artists from the year of 2018, and the town hall in El Bruc. This will take shape as a performative installation. In keeping with the line of work that Nyamnyam has been developing, we will explore the archeology of the location in a room donated by the City Council of El Bruc. We will start with found objects in and around the spaces surrounding the exhibition.
Following a similar strategy, Fluffy disk includes a virtual archeology by inviting artists and other locals to share the materials they have also accumulated on their mobile devices. From these double complementary elements — object / material and context / artists — we intend to create a dialogue, or rather, a spongy, elastic conversation that moves away from the hard disk and even the soft one. This is in order to create a porous space in which to discover the possible discursive lines that this material generates through the multiple visions that inhabit this fluffy space. Through the daily act of being together and comfortable, we will create stories from a ball of information that we do not intend to undo, but rather take as a starting point to weave possibilities.
