Encura #3, 2019
Itinerant Actions developed a collective fieldwork research programme that explored remote outposts, peripatetic practice and the fluidity of site-responsive working. The project invited resident artists at Hangar and cultural agents based in Barcelona to engage in a critical dialogue about embodied knowledge, ecological economies, roaming landscapes and material territory. The project was envisioned as site-responsive and adaptive; and outputs – including a workshop, symposium, film and field report – drew on many aspects of the fieldwork process including conversations between cultural agents, artists, landscapes and actions.
“The research explores both the critical dialogue between art and geography through fieldwork and the geographies of artistic practice in the landscape to develop new models of research in peripatetic practice and itinerant working. Fieldwork in artistic practice is an interesting line of research, since preliminary thinking and making are often not documented or omitted from the artist’s final work. This project focuses on how artists come into relation with different contexts: itinerant situations, performative strategies, embodied experiences and geographical locations.”
