Opening next Thursday at the Joinery.

Animales Vivos is an ongoing urban experiment featuring site-specific projects by Italian artist Helga Franza ‘in conversation’ with Marta Fernández Calvo. The project will start in Stoneybatter at an independent gallery (The Joinery), a lane (Chicken Lane) and will travel to a beach (Sandymount Strand) and a public institution (the Italian Institute of Culture). The core of Animales Vivos will be a solo exhibition by Helga Franza at The Joinery. Franza’s work is an interpretation of space that materialises through a wide range of techniques and themes/subjects of work. Her work at The Joinery will consist of an intricate arrangement of fabric sculptures, drawings on different media and a series of journals’ front pages – that she will make during her stay in Dublin. On the opening night there will be a performance using a spam archive that she has been collecting since 2001. During the course of the show, Franza will make a site-specific work – the Line of Flight, on Sandymount Strand to capture that very specific moment in time of her ‘being in Dublin’. Sandymount Strand will constitute the beginning point for Animales Vivos’ next edition. This whole process of work will be filmed and presented at a closing event at the Italian Institute of Culture, 11 Fitzwillian Square East, Dublin 2.
