INSTITUTION

CASAPOLI is a private non-profit cultural institution. It was founded in 2005 together with a singular building by the sea. “Poli”, in its Greek etymology, doesn’t only refer to the political role of a public work, but also points to an essential category of plurality and multiplicity. This open, diverse and expandable meaning, such as the contemporary city, is one of the principles that guide the varied functions of the house; it is simultaneously a place for retreat and individual introspection in an extreme natural landscape and a place for gatherings, exhibitions and workshops for research and collective production of cultural projects. With a regular Residence program, the institution aims to stimulate the regional visual arts’ experimental production and the exchange of experiences of local artists with the general community as much as the specialized national and international scenes.

RESIDENCE

The work “Coliumo Landscape 1 & 2” values the dynamics and aggressiveness of the local coastal landscape, expressing the seduction of the cliff as an ecosystem. A three-dimensional stereoscopic recording and representation format, typical of human sight, synthesizes bi-ocular information from two parallel points of view on the same object: the peninsula’s rocky landscape.
