Open Studios November 2017

This Saturday, November 25th at 8:30pm, AADK Spain opens Centro Negra to the public to show the research processes of the Artists in Residence.



Sebastian and Nefeli present a working draft of a choreographic piece. In it, they reflect over the idea of multiplicity and over the conception of Queer. They display and put into action  a series of movements, gestures, and materials through which they intend to dissect the polyvalence of both terms.

Throughout her residency, Gona detaches from her traditional background in Korean painting. She translates her academic knowledge and her classic materials (Korean ink and paper) to new means and elements, creating pieces were she explores the human morphology from a more experimental perspective.

Paula works around the idea of deconstruction. She intends to determine how much of the initial meaning is still imprinted when something is disassembled. Her process begins exploring different materials, and choosing techniques that reinforce the idea of form and counterform: rubbing, stenciling, engraving, printing. Through them, she creates a catalogue of material samples that she later uses as constructive elements of her installation pieces.

Open Studios October 2017

Next Saturday, October 28, at 9:00 p.m., AADK opens Centro Negra to the public to show the research processes of the artists in residence.

Campo Creative Studio: Roxana Roxana Pérez Méndez and Mario Manuel Marzán (Puerto Rico / USA) will share a few video works dealing with absurdity and impotence.

Gabrielle Zimmermann (Stuttgart) develops an interactive installation wrapped in a sound landscape which places the visitor between the essential and the residual, the playful and profound.

Nicolás Dardano (Buenos Aires) shows a laboratory of sound and light feedback based on the temporal pattern of the bells of the church of Blanca, Giuliana Grippo (Buenos Aires) shows us an installation in which it restores a series of elements that reflect natural events with a strong formal aspect.

Antonio Pagán Buendía and Adriana Da Silveira will activate a space through a dialogue with the mountain.

New Project: SONORA School of Sound Experimentation

SONORA is a School of Sound Experimentation established at Centro Negra, in Blanca (Murcia, Spain), in the rural environment of the Ricote Valley.

A project runned by AADK Spain, co-created and directed by artist-educator Selu Herraiz. Co-produced by Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation, which will financially support the initiative over a period of three years.

Its main aims are: to foster the development of musical pedagogy through creation, to encourage new ways of learning and contemporary thinking based on sound experimentation, as well as the cultural dynamization of the Ricote Valley. The project seeks to generate a sense of community through collective creation, playing and reflection –addressing issues of gender, cultural diversity as transversal axes– to promote attitudes of collaboration, trust and respect. Thus, Sonora wishes to facilitate transformative experiences through sound, to build other imageries and stimulate  awareness of acoustic ecology.
