Nico Angiuli, the first artist in residency for 2014 will present his artistic practice and the project “The tools` dance. Tobacco” to be developed during his stay in Albania on a research focused in the city of Shkodra. The research and the work to be produced during his residency at Tirana Art Lab is part of an ongoing project on the techniques and technologies of rural societies, industrial, post-industrial in the Mediterranean area in collaboration with local communities and farmers, artists, dancers, historians and experts of agricultural mechanization. The final aim is to create a video archive of gestures linked to the main agricultural crops in Western societies.
In Shkodra Nico Angiuli together with a group of local workers, artists, historians, dancers will research on the cultivation and production of tobacco. A new working group comes together for each new crop. We invite you to be present at the presentation and find out if you would like to join the project.
