Hangar | Triangle Network 7th Edição

FIELD WORKS
6 TO 16 DECEMBER 2018

Field Works is the sixth edition of Triangle Network (trianglenetwork.org) workshop held in Hangar.

Field Works intends to be a reflection on the potentialities of research and field work, bringing together artists from several geographies, which work is based on research about notions of space, territory and memory. To understand the relationships between theory/practice, exterior/interior and processes/results through exploration, first-hand contact, study and observation. Developing new practices, experiencing, knowing, investigating and thinking about the process as the fundamental period of creation.

Open Call : For Portuguese artists or residents in Portugal

 

Regulation

Description, dates, location and organization of the Workshop:

  1. The Field Works workshop is the seventh edition in Portugal of the Triangle Network International (trianglenetwork.org). The structure of the workshop will follow the model of the network, that is, to gather for two weeks a group of local and international artists (in equal number) enabling a joint work and the exchange of artistic, procedural and cultural experiences. A program of presentations, seminars and an Open Day complete the workshop calendar and give support and visibility to the work in progress. Six international artists and six national artists will participate in this project. A part will be selected by invitation or from the list of artists belonging to the Triangle Network. The other part will be selected from the above competition, open to artists with or without previous experiences in this network. The participation in this workshop in Portugal will increase the network with new artists who, in future, may benefit from the network of international workshops implemented around the world.

Objectives, conditions and profile of artists:

  1. The Field Works workshop aims to:
    • Create a space for reflection where artists are invited to develop work, collaborating in a context of experimentation with the space and contact with other artists;
    • Enable dialogue and artistic exchange between an international group of artists who explore the diversity and understanding between different cultures;
    • Provide access to alternative spaces to develop work within the site-specific;
    • To offer the public an experience within contemporary art, complementary or alternative to the experience in institutions and commercial spaces;

Nastaran Safaei

Nastaran Safaei (b. 1984 Tehran, Iran)

Beginning her journey as a sculptor by experimenting with pottery and clay in 2000 she was mostly self-taught in her experience until attending Parviz Tanavoli’s first series of sculpting workshops in 2006 focusing on the Bronze technique which resulted in her first solo sculpture exhibition at Assar art gallery. The successful show made her a member of the association of Iranian sculptors.

The main inspiration for her work is inner explorations of femininity by using mundane objects to express her experiences. She is deeply inspired by the mythological archetypes of Jung and the psychological methods of self-realization and ancient Iranian myths. Social and cultural issues influence her work deeply. She is currently working on the concept of time and the sub-conscious, focusing on the therapeutic aspect of her work in regards to her own psychological healing in relation to herself and the exterior. She regularly uses the human form to convey her ideas.

Other than the Bronze technique, use of other materials in her works, which include Aluminum, Brass, Fiberglass, Papier-Mache and mixed media were all based on personal experimentation and experience.
