Bruno Baltzer & Leonora Bisagno in Greve in Chianti (IT) >
The artists duo, formed in 2014, analyzes the condition of the image and media today, through installations and interventions that are often triggered by the context of an artistic residency. Baltzer and Bisagno draw on forms such as touristic photography, electoral posters, advertising neon, TV archive and printed newspaper, to dissect how images and historical documents are produced, while playing with a country’s idioms and customs.

Enzo Umbaca in Milan (IT) >
From his first steps in the art circuit, Enzo Umbaca’s research was characterized by the ability to intervene actively in the social environment. Without waiting for an official authorization, he started to consider the public space of Milan as his testing field. Sometimes with performances – where he acted in first person playing particular roles; sometimes asking, as a sensitive director, the collaboration of the people and involving them as protagonists in his process; sometimes building visible interventions such as a chalk powder line drawing of a football field visible only from one specific point of view, where a real one was never built…, near his home village in the South of Italy, Long before the appearance of Nicolas Bourriaud’s well known definition of Relational Art, he started to work as a sort of sensor of emerging social phenomena. Each work is an occasion to make visible situations that are considered troublesome, finding an original way to establish a contact with several “others”. more>
