Núria Rovira Terradas in Centro Botín residency

Ruskin MFA student Núria Rovira Terradas took part in a residency earlier this year at Centro Botín, in Spain.

A snapshot from the residency at Centro Botín.

A group performance.

The one-week workshop titled 'The Ground Slips Between Us' offered the opportunity for creative practitioners to work with the artist Shilpa Gulpta and the curator Renata Cervetto at Centro Botín. Intended as a collective research stage leading up to Shilpa’s solo exhibition at Centro Botín, the programme combined reading sessions with creative outputs and group performances, as well as visiting behind the scenes of Shilpa Gupta’s exhibition. The themes explored included arts censorship, public participation, institutional critique, autotheory, and arts pedagogy.

"'The Ground Slips Between Us' is a workshop that encourages the sharing of practices and experiences in art and education based on the work of the artist Shilpa Gupta. The workshop invites artists, curators, cultural agents and mediators working within institutions or community projects to rethink their current processes and challenges based on the themes and methodologies that traverse the artist’s work. Topics such as strategies of creative resilience in the face of censorship and repression; the ideological and geopolitical barriers that cross our bodies and systems of thought-action-mobility; and imagination and radical listening as tools of resistance and community building will be exercised by contemplating the working contexts of the people participating in the workshop."
