Alessio Barchitta, Giulia Fumagalli, Salvador Gomez, Grace Mokalapa, Zana Masombuka and Viktoria Nianiou end their journey with Arp-Art Residency Project at Investec Cape Town Art Fair, co-existence is the show of artworks made by the 6 winning artists during the six weeks of the art residency between Cape Town, Granada e Roma.
co-existence is an exploratory journey of interpersonal, geographical, and collective experiences of identity. We all exist in close proximity, but often without being aware of each other’s individual and shared experience. We move in built and organic environments that evoke emotional responses – beyond our consciousness – the scenography of our daily life.
co-existence is not the sum of individuals, but the result of this addition.
co-existence means sharing and reflecting on our identity in terms of culture, heritage, gender, and environment. One of the questions the project poses is: how we can realize a co-existence without disavowing our individual cultural heritage.
co-existence will see three stages of travel, meetings, and research: Cape Town, Granada and Rome. (Alessandra Atti Di Sarro – ARP Director)
Giulia Fumagalli and Alessio Barchitta from Italy, Viktoria Nianiou and Salvador Gomez from Spain, Zana Masombuka and Grace Mokalapa from South Africa, are the 6 young winners artists of ARP 7Edition. From the 14th of December 2019 to the 18th of January 2020 they will be on show with co-existence, the exhibition that concludes the art residency project between Cape Town, Granada e Rome.
ARP is a program of international residencies organized by Centro Luigi Di Sarro, with the collaboration of Rainbow Media NPO. ARP is aimed at engaging young artists under 30 with geographical and interpersonal exchanges. ARP 7th Edition – Talents Exchange has been made possible thanks to the contribution of the MAECI-Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and to Media Aid Onlus and My Cape Town. The exchange project between South Africa and Italy began in 2009 and since then more than twenty-five artists have travelled and worked between the two countries.
The present edition, took place in Cape Town, Granada, and Rome, adding a second stage in Europe. In November and December 2019 the Talent Exchange followed a new format: an itinerant route where each artist will have the opportunity to work on a research project in constant dialogue with the environment and the rest of the group. The participants have different stories and artistic background: Giulia Fumagalli and Alessio Barchitta come from Milan but Alessio was born in Sicily, Salvador Gomez comes from Barcelona whereas Viktoria Nianiou has studied in Spain but was born in Greece. Lastly, Grace Mokalapa and Zana Masombuka both live in Johannesburg.
Congratulation to Paolo Bini! He won the XVII Edizione Premio Cairo 2016 in Milan, one of the most relevant prize focused on the emerging talents. Paolo Bini was selected for our ARP-Art Residency Project 2013 to go for a monthly art residency in Cape Town and this experience definitely opened his southafrican adventure. Now the Centro Di Sarro are very proud about this award. The ARP is an exchange programme focused to the young talents. In RSA ARP is active from 2009. The new edition will be in march 2017 in Cape Town.
