NEWS FROM HOME - BARCELONA - SPAIN
RESIDENCY PERIOD: OCTOBER 22 - NOVEMBER 10, 2020
EXHIBITION PERIOD: TBA 2021
The eighth location for 'News From Home' is in the neighbourhood of Sant Andreu in Barcelona, Spain. For this edition of the project, we are part of 'Sounds of Our Cities', a European project of cultural cooperation based upon research and the transfer of knowledge among the spheres of art, technology and social space. The aim of this project is to activate sound art ideas in order to create a story that, from contemporary reality, deals with the concept of "silenced spaces". Taking recall and memory as its point of departure, the project aims to offer a fictional landscape upon which to project various realities, while opening up debate upon current issues.
During October and November of 2020, Anne Fehres and Luke Conroy were part of a residency in Sant Andreu, were they were able to conduct field research in the community - writing notes, capturing photographs and recording sounds. This research from this has formed the basis of an exhibited sound piece that will be displayed in 2021 (exact date TBA) alongside 4 other artists also working in the city.
