Regoltu e Candelas - Triulas
Art residence CAMPIDARTE, Ussana, Italy.
Curated by Maurizio Coccia
In collaboration with Social Centre Pangea, Art Residency CAMPIDARTE and Società Agricola Mediterranea Monte Trexenta.
Guided by an expert local farmer, during the opening it took place the second phase of the project Regoltu e Candelas. During a walk through the surrounding landscapes spontaneous species had been picked all the way through and then used to prepare the lunch. Pellitzas - a traditional Sardinia’s pasta - was kneaded and cooked together with guests; the flour was donated by the agricultural company “Società Agricola Mediterranea Monte Trexenta” involved in the project during the month of residence.
The outcomes produced on September 2013 during the first phase (Regoltu e Candelas - Cabidanni) were exhibited in the shape of videos and installations inside CAMPIDARTE’s warehouse, which space was left as it was - rather than being changed into a white cube exhibiting space - to point out the rural aspects of the project.
The non-intervention priciple has been experimenting since then with the installation of 100 meters of wool yarn: at the entrance of CAMPIDARTE’s lands the yarn shaped the conditions for plants like mint and rosemary to grow following their natural cycle with no intervention from people.
