The section ‘Solo residencies’ by C.F. Contemporary Fire, which joins and alternates with residences that include small groups of artists, revolves around the concept of honor systemtypical of British countries, in which mutual exchange and trust between individuals dictate the rules of social and community coexistence. The idea of ​​residences located in a place still inhabited by a family, stemmed from the intention of generating incessant exchanges and debates, both between people and also with the surrounding natural environment, rich in plant and animal specimens. The perpetual dialogue interwoven with the countless variables and guided together with the curator, will allow the interiorization of suggestions and ideas with the perspective of a creative flow that impacts the practice of the people involved on a long term.

These new residency periods, that will be dedicated to one artist, will include more moments and sharing activities with the curator, in order to discover the neighboring areas with the different artistic personalities, landscapes, ideas of inspiration and opportunities for participation in events and exhibitions.
