OMNE / WORK 2016-2018 showcases the results of the first workshop for artists in residence organized by the Nord-Est Mobile Observatory; ten projects, ten visions, between memory and contemporaneity, show the complexity of the landscape of the North-East of Italy through a common theme of analysis: "work".
"Work" as the foundation of the social pact that keeps a community united, as an element that configures a landscape. Between consolidated reality and places for decades, the territory of the North-East has consecrated its fame to "work". Thanks to the work, a territory has been built, it has become one landscape, the future of a large geographical area has been decided.
The editorial project is inspired by the theme of investigation and translates it into an object that at first glance wants to remember, reinterpreting it, the typical archival collector. Inside, different page formats and types of paper indicate the passage from critical texts, to teachers' contributions, up to the projects of international artists, presented in the form of rubricated files.
Artists in residence: Mattia Balsamini, Kirsti Taylor Bye, Christian Lange, Mårten Lange, Massimo Mastrorillo, Brent Meistre, Karin Apollonia Müller, Josef Schulz, Nigel Shafran, TFTF
Teachers: Leonardo Delogu, Hans Gremmen, Stefano Raimondi, Stefania Rössl, Massimo Sordi, Petra Stavast
OMNE – OSSERVATORIO MOBILE NORD-EST investigates environmental, architectural, anthropological, social and cultural aspects of North-East Italy through a multidisciplinary approach. The origin of the project lies in the idea of a journey, a journey that takes place on the territory in search of possible relationships between space, landscape and the body that inhabits it.
