I.D.E.A. Salento
conceived by Nicoletta Rusconi
Ex essiccatoio, Gagliano del Capo (Lecce)
From 3 June 2019 only by appointment

The artist residency “I.D.E.A. Salento”, conceived by Nicoletta Rusconi and in collaboration with Patrizio e Marina Ziggiotti, is opening at the ex essiccatoio in Gagliano del Capo (Lecce). The first artist in residence is Ighshaan Adams who recently finished his experience at Cascina Maria in Agrate Conturbia. In the new venue of I.D.E.A. other site-specific interventions have been commissioned such as the works by Mattia Bosco and Letizia Cariello. While Mattia Bosco explored the possibilities of the Lecce stone, similar to the tuff, creating sculptures that he transformed into masks, Letizia Cariello interacted with the orange grove through an environmental installation. She wrapped the trees with meters of red thread, according to a process of reconstruction of ties and connections that the artist has developed in her artistic research.
