Art and Science Residency: MARITIMA 01
Marítima’01 is an art project articulated around an art residence, based on the interest to the environmental situation of the Mediterranean Sea and its region.
Marítima’01 brings together contemporary artists and scientists to create artworks as a result from their dialogues and collaboration.
the film PRIORITY HABITAT relates to Posidonia Oceanica, an herb endemic to the Mediterranean Sea. Posidonia meadows are on the verge of extinction.
As part of the residency Maritima 01, I worked in close dialogue with scientists from IMEDMAR-UCV Institute from Valencia (Spain) and in collaboration with the Mediterranean diver Wilfried Bruneau, the dancer Ann Barros, and the musician Gabo Lora.
This film is a shamanic dance that explores the underwater movement of the Marine Plant Posidonia Oceanica as a quest for survival. « Priority Habitat » depicts the spiritual journey of a hybrid being’s metamorphosis into a creature half-human half plant. It’s a tribute to Ecofeminist thinking.
At the border of two living species. This project sits at the intersection of art, performance, science, ecological commitment, and our actions in the face of climate change.
