NOW Check-point / From La Montagne de Venise to No Man’s Land
Venice -> Loreto Aprutino
17th – 20th March 2017

Montagne processione.jpg

NOW – New Operation Wave invites you to take part in a journey setting off from La Montagne de Venise in the Venice Lagoon and leading to No Man’s Land in Loreto Aprutino. Both interventions by Yona Friedman with Jean-Baptiste Decavèle, that have had the active participation of NOW, are connected with the territory through their adaptable nature. They are not defined locations, nor are they pre-established architectural models, but rather they constitute a background for the development of a new vision of architecture.

“On the earth’s surface there are different areas in which the human animal can organize its habitat with diverse means.”

(Y. Friedman, The Architecture of Survival, A Philosophy of Poverty, 2003)

 

The NOW Check-point is set up as an extemporaneous residency where young architects, artists and curators will be involved in the creation of a choral site-specific project based on the single modules making up the Montagne.

The four days will include discussions and moments of experimentation via simple actions. This platform will allow the possibility to think of the imaginable and improvisable alternatives parallel to the current scenes within the world of art and architecture. On the boundary between the two is born the willingness to create new images, far from the idea of a building or the mere object of a work of art in a world overflowing with constructions.

It is up to our generation the pursue Friedman’s idea of a realizable utopia, developing new visions.
Reinventing the city, parks, districts and ports as places of possibility and of exchange.

 


 

 

 

NOW No Man's Land invitation

NOW – New Operation Wave

invites you to

A very serious pic-nic in No Man’s Land 

by Yona Friedman  and  Jean-Baptiste Decavèle

 

A new NOW meeting will take place the 2nd and 3rd September 2016, as an anticipation of the workshop to be held in Vigne Museum.  It is open to everybody but you have to play!

We are free. You choose your limits.” says Yona Friedman concerning No Man’s Land and the concept of limit. The starting idea of the meeting was born from this sentence. The aim is to discuss the concept of border as a limit of physical spaces and disciplinary fields. NOW intends to blur the boundaries between art, architecture and cross the limits that confine all of us in a specific field. This encounter will be held in No Man’s Land, a private territory donated to the community, without borders, open to everyone.

“No Man’s Land belongs to everybody.” Y. F.

NOW staff and the bravest participants will spend the night inside the intervention in No Man’s Land, precisely inside the stone tapestry by Friedman/Decavéle. A territory without boundaries is a representative place for an artistic nomad generation.

The purpose is to create a conceptual No Man’s Land, fertile for planting and growing new ideas and collaborations. The overcoming of a defined territory will be supported by the use of Internet linking different countries in the same place, creating a juxtaposition between new technologies and natural environment. The virtual round table will take place at Spazio Di Paolo, an interdisciplinary space that mixes arts, photography, packaging design, food and beverage marketing.

meeting NOW – New Operation Wave

16-18 October 2015, Zerynthia, Rome (Italy)

On 16-18 October 2015 Zerynthia, comparable to a homepage, opened its spaces to the second NOW network meeting. NOW’s desire is to reinforce and amplify communication between young curators / artists / students through  the creation of a work group made up of participants of the various Academies and Cultural Institutions. Through the network, it’s possible to recreate an original public made up of the players themselves. Let us imagine the participants as viral elements capable of launching, through confrontation, new possibilities and positive contaminations.

During the meeting the group worked on spontaneous vocabulary, using a childhood game. Words proposed by all the participants give life to a work in progress that will be developed the coming months.

Participants: Sara Aloisi / Dario Agati / Nico Angiuli / Darcey Bennett / Santo Alessandro Badolato / Camilla Carè / Cecilia Casorati / Nico Dockx / Franca Ermini /  Alexis Gautier / Karolina Lusikova / Daniele Maffeis / Barbara Nardacchione / OUT44 / Francesca Pellicci / Laura Stancanelli / Elisabetta Tacconelli
