“Creença/Belief” is a two-month residency hosting over 50 local, national and international, multidisciplinary artists in Catalonia, Spain, curated by Axel Void and organised by Elsa Guerra, Jofre Oliveras and Charlotte Pyatt.
The event is taking place in an old abandoned Convent from the 19th Century, the space today is run as an art residency and a cultural centre called “Konvent“.
Initiated by Void Projects; painters, sculptors, installation artists, performers, and filmmakers will visit throughout July and August 2018 to create site specific installations and original works in situ to culminate in a three-day event from 31st of August and 1-2nd of September featuring theatre, talks and live music.
Creença comprises the concept of belief from a personal, religious or epistemological standpoint; questioning the line between belief and knowledge and proposing different relative perspectives. Embracing the social conventions and rituals of religion while avoiding the dogmatic belief. Creença invites the artist to address and interpret the themes from their own relative perspective.
Creença, intends to foster a sense of community within our movement and reinforce the ideology of dialogue and cohabitation between artists during the creative process. Searching together for a commonplace between tradition and progressive thoughts.
