The Iscream project has been conceived to build spaces for training and conducting artistic research, questioning the possible formats and locations used to exhibit and discuss art, appropriating real estate during times of transformation, ranging from structures that are vacant or awaiting renovations or demolition. The project takes on fluid contours in proposing new formats for each edition, both in terms of conceptual challenges, by proposing works that are based on a central narrative, to structural challenges, such as maintaining and balancing this cultural platform.
REDSCREAM is the result of research by 18 artists working out the Salão dos Arcos, inspired by the red that solicited such a reaction that it has become a formative element in the works that have been developed as an investigative substrate, instigating the senses.
The technique is ancient, but the dimension that Anne Galante uses in her performance is new and refocuses attention on the importance of these handicrafts to the world.
Using big needles and thread, she weaves a huge futon for people to lie down on and remember their dreams. Anne Galante's mission is to preserve these techniques and recover the health benefits of creating a handmade product, promote wellness and reflect on conscious consumption and production. Fashion is not just for the fashion world; everyone wears clothes, and often people have no idea how cruel the production process can be.
In these hectic times where everything is "fast", she proposes an alternative to this frenetic pace by offering a deliberate “slowness”. While she knits, the audience interacts by watching a slow movement that stitch by stitch forms a giant work of art. Just like in our dreams, if we take the first steps, it will slowly become reality.
