In Resò 3 residency: “We would like to use the residence at PAV to explore the possibility of creating an online network between Henval Vani and a local community around the PAV Park in Turin, or people associated with the Park in some way. Through an online exchange, we are interested in seeing the interaction that shapes up between these two spaces that have experienced ecological reorganization in contrasting ways- the park which has seen a transformation from the ‘industrial’ to the ‘ecological’; and ecologically-rich Tehri turning into an ‘industrial’ zone of its own, in this case, through hydro-power. We are hopeful that such a dialogue will be useful in sharing knowledge and experiences around ideas of resource usage, sustainable living and the need for preservation and positive ecological reorganization”.
