The village of Blanca has been an incredible and bizarre home for one month. The works I have made have largely been inspired by these strange visitors – dead prickly pear cactus.
This saturday the 16th of May I am presenting my work in progress at Centro Negra. The program will start at 12 noon and run into the night, with presentations, paella and music later in the evening. Read about the program HERE . My studio will be open and I will be talking about my project ‘tourists’. The attached images are from a trial performance with sculptures.MORE
I am currently in residence at AADK’s Spanish base Centro Negra in the small village of Blanca in Murcia. The centre is a cluster of stone buildings, rebuilt in the old Jewish quarter of Blanca directly below the 11century Moorish castle. Here the houses peter out to ramshackle animal sheds, ruined walls and the huge stone outcrops of the mountain. Every morning I hear flocks of swallows calling over the town and roosters crowing. The church bell continues all night, ringing the hours and echoing up the valley. I have a one month stay here and am presenting my first works in progress on the 16th of May should you be in the neighborhood. More information on the AADK site HERE.
