INSTITUTION

CASAPOLI’s main production line is its Residence Program, which takes place in the house itself. The Residence is understood as a complementary format to academic education. It establishes a direct experience of the artist in an unknown context. With this unprejudiced, almost touristic vision, the program attempts to promote an exchange between visitors and permanent inhabitants of the region. Assuming this educating role, and given the fundamental confrontation between architectural abstraction and extreme nature, the Residence Program proposes to explore two broad curatorial lines: landscape and society. Thus, the resident artists will have an appropriate level of both specificity and generality to articulate their own researches with immediate issues of the context: from matters related to production systems and their impact on local geography to the constant conceptual conflicts between the Natural and the Artificial.
