AN-ICON RESIDENCY – 12° Atelier “Emilio Vavarella: THE ITALIAN JOB – Job n. 3, Lazy Sunday”

12° ATELIER

The 12° Atelier is a virtual atelier born in 2020 from the collaboration between Casa degli Artisti and the ERC Advanced Grant project "AN-ICON. An-Iconology: History, Theory, and Practices of Environmental Images" (funded by the European Research Council (ERC) within the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Union) coordinated by Prof. Andrea Pinotti, at the Department of Philosophy "Piero Martinetti" of the State University of Milan.

 

 

RESIDENCIES CURATED BY AN-ICON

From 2021, the 12° Atelier, in addition to the eleven ateliers physically present in Casa degli Artisti, will host a programme of artistic residencies produced by AN-ICON and curated by Elisabetta Modena and Sofia Pirandello.

The AN-ICON residencies are aimed at Italian and international artists who want to create new works of art in virtual, augmented and mixed reality. The artists selected through a public call for applications are invited to reflect on the relationship between concrete physical space and virtual space, exploring the perceptive and agentive possibilities generated by new technologies. The artists' work is also documented in a series of scientific publications and presented in a series of seminars and conferences open to the public.

Description

THE ITALIAN JOB - Job n. 3, Lazy Sunday

Curated by:
Elisabetta Modena and Sofia Pirandello

 

Lazy Sunday is the third work in THE ITALIAN JOB series. Started in 2014, straddling Italy and the United States, this series intends to highlight the hidden structures behind themes such as artistic legitimacy, virtuality, immaterial labour and 2.0 relationships between artists and curators. Lazy Sunday takes shape after an invitation to participate in a virtual residency within the spaces of the 12th Atelier.  The artist accepts the invitation, overturning the assumptions of the residency: instead of participating at a distance, Vavarella transforms his point of view into an open space for  the virtual participation of other people. The work consists of a 12-hour film made with a 360° camera and shot continuously on 8 August 2021, on an ordinary day. Starting at 9:40 a.m., Emilio Vavarella filmed the events of one of his summer Sundays, recording his every activity, from waking up until the evening.
The film will be shown in the space set up in the Casa degli Artisti, where visitors can take on the point of view of the artist using a Virtual Reality headset.
