Giuliana Racco and Matteo Guidi are invited to Portugal for a workshop about The Artist and the Stone



Resident artists Giuliana Racco and Matteo Guidi have been invited to Porto (10th – 30th October) to take part in the Technical Unconscious: a Cultural project by FBAUP and Cooperativa dos PedreirosThey are conducting a workshop in relation to their new project The Artist and the Stone.

Giuliana Racco and Matteo Guidi will conduct a workshop-residency in theme with the 100th anniversary of the Cooperativa dos Pedreiros and connected to their new work The Artist and the Stone. The latter is part of a greater research on the overcoming of constraints – those imposed and those, consequently, self-imposed. It looks into questions concerning mobility, desire, negotiations, through a specific case study involving the management of the twofold movement of a subject (a performance artist) and an object (a large block of stone) from the West Bank to Europe.

They will hold a series of meetings with a group of participants from the Cooperativa’s training courses within the auditorium of the cooperative itself.  The focus of the Porto sessions will be to work with stones coming from the West Bank, a displaced resource, with participants coming from countries that were formerly Portuguese colonies. The auditorium will be open to the public during the last week of the workshop and the results of the process will be presented therein.
