ANDREA ABBATANGELO

Project RadioLondon _ Harare for CTG(R): Zimbabwe 2018

 

CTG(R): Zimbabwe is organized in collaboration between the CTG Collective, Catinca Tabacaru gallery (New York / Harare) and Dzimbanhete Arts & Culture Interactions. CTG(R): Zimbabwe is now evolving parallel to the broader CTG(R) program and has resulted in institutional and museum projects internationally.

 

From the press realease of CTG-R: ZIMBABWE 2018 at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery, Harare:

 

“From politics into poetry, Andrea Abbatangelo moves from stranger to familiar. His methodology was one of field research, understanding the surrounding space and culture. A chair stands tall underneath a native tree, looking from above, bird watching maybe; while a sculpture-cum- basketball-net introduces a foreign entity to the community’s meeting space – the Somaby Shop.”

THE PROJECT

 

Project RadioLondon consists of a series of sou-nd sculptures and site specific sound installations which will form a gallery of portraits of artists that moved from Southern and Eastern to Northern European cities.

 

My aim is to connect physical places to a digital archive of documentary audio portraits following a program of performative and collaborative events which will be recorded and stored in a Web Radio.

MISSION

 

Project RadioLondon calls for itinerant sounds-workshops to engage sound art practice as a means of critically representation of mobility and art practice through collaboratively experiences an alternative system of representation and self-representation based on engagement and self-cultivation.

 

Project RadioLondon is made by an artist for other artists and we are going to invite mutual collegues and meet local communities during a nomadic session of workshops giving voice to activism and encouraging individuals and groups of people and involving them in multidiscipinary sessionS of work.

With the support of Dzimbanhete Art & Culture Interactions and CTG Collective as a collaboration between the 2015inclulding the building of our first structure - CTG Harare designed by Rachel Monosov; an annual art residency held at Dzimbanhete; and an exhibition at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare curated by Catinca Tabacaru. The Residency's artists have gone on to participate in international residencies; gallery and institutional exhibitions in cities including New York, Paris, and London; and in the past year in the Biennales of Venice, Bamako, and Dakar.

The selected artists landed in Zimbabwe at the beginning of August, familiarized themselves with the current context, and have been producing new works, which will be presented this Saturday, August 25th, at CTG Harare.
