Engl. (Hrv. beloww)

Kamov residency programme in 2016 begins with Polygon collective hosted by City of Rijeka and Museum of Contemporary Arts Rijeka, and coordinated by Giulia Carrabelli (I/GB), and Branka Cvjetičanin (HR), with number of other Polygon associates and guests, in the period from January 1st to 31st, 2016.

Beside the fact we consider Rijeka as dramatic and futuristic city-scape which hardly can be found in Croatia and/or Mediterranean region, the real reason why we have chosen Rijeka for the collective residency is the connection with amaizing people and friends we met through years and who gave us inside view into vibrant and emancipated Rijeka’s artistic and cultural scene. We are honored to be residents at KAMOV.

Also, we consider art as a space of some new social and/or scientific inovation, which directly, in critical and subversive way influancing social plastic and formating perception by “writing” it directly in the “code” of society narratives.

In that sense our residency will be dedicated to the city of Rijeka, urban antropology and artistic inovation.

Polygon art-research residency content is divided into two thematic working paths, together with the parallel and continuos documentation and evaluation process:

“Rijeka – the Capital of Croatia, Hong Kong of Europe” – the work is dedicated to the city of Rijeka in the futue and topics through which we process correlations between city as a capital, community and therritory, by observing power trends of centralism, the character of the urban syntax and narrative of the city all together in a correlation to the European and global context. This work in progress is theoretical, performative and visual practice based on community interaction. To document the process we will use format of the day by day travelogue > Tacchi Alti / High Heels.

“From the Nucleus to the Fireworks” – an art-research of (mega)Structures vs. Organisms. As a foundation for this work we will use visualisation of the Unated Nations organisation structure, and through work we will try to learn basics geometric bodies, and antropologycal meaning of the circuit dancing – kolo dancing.

“Symbiosis of the sea anemone and hermit crab” – a meta-study in the background, documentation and evaluation process. After 15 years, Polygon as an organisation structure shifting it’s own shape due to the Croatian NGO scene circumstances and trends. Beside questioning own capacity and range of our programme practice we will observe the mutual influence of this unlike organisation symbiosis, and possible outcomes in a form of persistent mutualism, commensalistic, and/or parasitic relationship between institutional domicile provider and the NGO status. We believe that some form of persistent mutualism will be maintained.

In general, art-research process involves collaboration with individuals and/or institutions, temporary art performances, live act, open studio activities such as “Room for Reading and Observing”. Due to the documentation process and interactions with participants all information will be published through different social media, as well as several fanzine publications. Some parts of the work will be presented as a potential cllaboration and/or co-production model.

Polygon na kolektivnoj godišnjoj rezidenciji KAMOV, Grad Rijeka;

Novu 2016. godinu rezidencijalni program Kamov Grada Rijeke i Muzeja Moderne i Suvremene umjetnosti – MMSU, Rijeka, započinje kolektivnom umjetničko-istraživačkom rezidencijom Polygon kolektiva koju koordiniraju Giulia Carrabelli (I/GB) i Branka Cvjetičanin (HR), a koja uključuje brojne Polygon suradnike i goste, u razdoblju od 1. do 31. siječnja 2016.godine.

“Osim što grad Rijeku doživljavamo kao dramatično-futuristički urbani krajolik što ju čini jedinstvenom u Hrvatskoj i na Mediteranu, pravi razlog zbog kojeg smo izabrali Rijeku za kolektivnu rezidenciju su prijatelji i suradnici koje smo svih ovih godina susretali i družili se i koji su nam dali na uvid “insajderski” pogled u živu i emancipiranu riječku umjetničku i kulturnu scenu. Izuzetna nam je čast biti rezidentima KAMOVa.

Umjetnost smatramo predprostorom neke nove socijalne i/ili znanstvene inovacije kojom direktno, kritički i subverzivno utječemo na socijalnu plastiku, i uspostavljamo prostore politizirane komunikacije radeći direktno u “kodu” izmjene narativa društvene svakodnevice. Sustavno radimo na sintaksi i narativima identiteta propitujući vrijednosti i karakter fizičkog i društvenog oblika zajednice. Ovaj program kao i svi dosadašnji Polygon programi i aktivnosti “… služe zajednicama u kojima su izvedeni.” (Tedlock, 2005: 160-161).”” Polygon kolektiv
