Idea of sharing artists’ and curators’ houses as an alternative residency space was developed and now we have our first pilot artist. It was informally started Feb 2009 and we already have networks in Seoul, Barcelona, Berilin, and NYC.
House Residency provides intimate relationships, practical artist communiy help, accomodations, and global networks yet tears down conventional pretentious habits among artits and curators(we hope so).
Yaiza Nicolás is an artist based in Barcelona, Spain. She received her BFA from Alonso Cano University of Granada, Spain and she studied one year as exchange program in Fonty’s Art Academy of Tilburg, The Netherlands. After graduated she completed her studies with a MA of Digital Art from Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona. She received different Young Artist Grants and Art Residencies from Pompeu Fabra University, Phonos Foundation, Metrónom, Hangar, SSamzie Space, Junta de Andalucía, UNESCO and Changdong Studio.
Yaiza´s work research about the representation of collective desire in growing economies. Yaiza used to combine 2 elements in order to build an idea, and is common to find in her work the animal figure as a metaphor of human being. Yaiza is interesting in the relation ship between beauty and power, especially after her first experience in Korea.
