Working Geographies and
Caucacola project by Giorgio Cugno

Which can be the art’s and artists’ role in a changing geography like the one we have seen during last years?
How much does the residence affect on the artistic reasearch in this prospective?
Starting from the volume Working Geographies (Mousse Publishing) about the first four editions of the international programme RESO’, presented by the curator Lisa Parola of the collective a.titolo, the discussion will be held on declinations and incidences of the artistic practice of residence comparing different projects.
Giving shape to a strange geography that connects the northern Italian region of Piedmont, with Egypt, Brazil, India and Colombia, Working Geographies offers a set of reflections around the boundary concepts, identity and culture, in a global scenario, liquid and subject to constant interrelations and fractures.
As part of the meeting, Giorgio Cugno, artist involved in the fourth edition of RESO, will present Caucacola, an artwork made up of a cinematic installation and a sculpture created by the artist in 2014 during the residency at Lugar a Dudas, Cali, in Colombia. Recurring theme in the current research of the artist is the exploitation of raw materials such as gold or water, which become the plotline for questioning on issues such as geographical boundaries, the global economic flows, the relationship between the changes of environment and human action, the balance between work and market.
RESO’ is an international residence program for Piedmont artists, it was born in 2010 from the collaboration of major Piedmont artistic institutions and thanks to the support of the Fondazione per l’Arte Modena e Contemporanea.
The project is curated by: Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti, a.titolo, Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea ,Città di Torino GAI, Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto, Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, PAV – Parco Arte Vivente.
