Even Dust Can Burst into Flames

Residency at Raizvanguarda

Curated by

Gois, Portugal

During the artist residency at Raizvanguarda in Goís (Portugal) our the interested was focused on the fires that happened in 2017 and killed over 100 people trapped by the fire and heat. Sadly such events have occurred in the past and are pretty common in Spain and Portugal during the hot seasons. Our aim was to work with material found in the field that tell part of such sad events. Frottage, videos, interviews, performance and sculptures are the results of a productive week of residency.
