La Crita è mia! material and materiality

La Crita è Mia: On Material and Materiality is  the event and workshop at the Ceramics Museum in Cutrofiano. The event will mark the end of the residency of Raghad Saqfalhait, the artist selected by Vessel Art Project for the residency exchange of the Soil Futures programme hosted by KORA – Centro del Contemporaneo. 

After six weeks in residency, the artist will share her research work on the geography of clay in connection with the cultural, social, economic and urban evolution of Cutrofiano and its territory. The artist will be in conversation with various guests including Francesco Meo, scientific director of the Museo Diffuso di Borgo Terra and the Archaeological Park of Muro Leccese, Salvatore Matteo former director of the Cutrofiano Ceramics Museum, and Donato Colì, ceramist. Following this, Raghad and Donato Colì will hold a workshop using local clay and other materials to create a collective sculpture that will be donated to the Museum.

Soil Futures is an initiative of Arts Catalyst, Riwaq Centre for Architectural Conservation, Sakiya -Art/Science/Agriculture, Struggles for Sovereignty, and Vessel Art Project.
