Welcome to the Jam Factory Art Center in Lviv, Ukraine and join us at the residency project “I am where I am fine”. The topic was chosen as a result of curator’s Anna Gaidai research of post-industrial Pidzamche district in Lviv which has no infrastructure, and observation of its depressive state, its transformation period on the one hand, and reflections on how Jam Factory Art Center, which is situated on Pidzamche, could contribute to positive changing this environment on the other hand.
International artists Jacopo Natoli and Guendalina Salini (Italy) came together with their rich experience of working with children and communities. Despite the fact that they had not met each other before, they became a wonderful duet and created a community from all the participants.
Joined by the local artists Serhiy Petlyuk and Iryna Ruzina they conducted a series of workshops inspired by Donna Haraway’s theory and developed the theme of community formation and its interaction with the environment. The goal of the workshop was to create a “unique body” among the participants in order to build up an open and potential space for freedom, desire and imagination.
