Out there, everything is present
Inside of me, time doesn’t exist

Something moves inside when the landscape around us changes. There is a direct connection between the surrounding territory and our inner emotions. A kind of emotional synesthesia allows us to feel the spaces we dwell, we can feel cool like a forest or arid as a desert. We are the landscape we see. The skin is a border between what happens inside and outside of our body -a permeable border by absorption-.

In and Out is a laboratory to explore through the image the relations between body and territory. A space that allows the participants to listen the beats of their creativity and draw the cartography of their wishes by making an intimate documentary. Develop a photography practice from the emotions to give light to what was left under the shade.

Aims

  • To search for the intersection between the performative and the image.
  • To explore the environment while roaming, to listen to the silence, to embody the pause, to feel our own rhythm and synchronize it to the local breath.
  • To work from the body with performative dynamics and to create situations / experiences establishing a dialogue with the territory.
  • To experiment in the crossroad between the analogical and the digital image.
  • To discover the physicity of the photo as an object, black and white chemical laboratory, cianotipia technique and digital editing will be used.
  • To play with the body and the environment, not only as objects to portrait, but as support of the image itself, whether this is ephemeral or permanent.

_target group: Visual artists, performers and persons connected to the art in any way.
