ARTIST RESIDENCIES

Julieta García Vazquez & Javier Villa were born in 1978 in Buenos Aires (Argentina);
live and work in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

In the Cités Sociales district of council housing near the Fagor Factory, Julieta García Vazquez and Javier Villa are holding a dialogue with the local fabric through a collective and collaborative project. For several years now, they have been imagining actions that sway between a necessary response to a social and environmental situation, and the emergence of utopias. The Argentinian duo have devised a social fiction in the form of a secret society, whose actors are local residents, the artists and scientists working in the neighbourhood, and the pupils of the lower secondary school nearby. Together, they are taking part in a new way of circulating knowledge and sensory experience specific to the Gerland district.
