My project focused on Federico Garcia Lorca's notion of duende, the indefinable quality that bursts forth in inspired moments, particularly flamenco. Traveling in Andalucia before the residency, I gathered flamenco inspiration and collage materials, salvaging small items from flea markets, thrift shops, and sidewalks. My muses, two old black and white photographs I found in a flea market in Sevilla, were toted on top of my backpack, in buses, on trains, until I reached El Bruc, the town that is home to Can Serrat.
I was extremely fortunate to work with/ share space with such beautiful and talented artists at the residency:
