On the 6th of June, vessel visited Sanja Lasic. She provided insight on the role of transitory migration between various Eastern and Western European countries as the impetus for her work. Additionally, vessel visited Alessandro Nassiri, who showed examples of his installation work and their accessible conceptual matter that serves to provoke public dialogue.
On the 7th of June, vessel visited artists in residence at Viafarini, Fausto Falchi and Hannah Heilmann. Both artists shared the common background of originally taking part in collective groups to create art and eventually independently branching out to pursue their own work. Falchi, originally part of the Borosotto collective, gave a presentation consisting of mechanical “inventions”; interactive pieces that reflect the relationship between man and machine. Heilmann, originally part of the Ingen Frygt collective, showed pictorial and performance pieces, which reflected on the nature of disbanding and recreating established social constructions.
