CRA’P resident 2018

A landscape sketch

“Atlantis2018” refers to the myth of a civilization that has disappeared due to a catastrophe.

The title is re-updated every year. The re-updating affects the processual and unfinished character of the research, which does not point towards a specific goal but to a practice that is constantly confronted to the present moment. The research started in 2017, and has been shared with different people going through different work stages.

The main axis of the work is the memory of the body, especially related to the territory, addressing not only the personal memory, but also all the inherited and collective memory. It is a proposal of immersion, reaching depths where fiction and reality are no longer discernible.
