Elena Bajo: selected artist in residence for Sundaymorning@EKWC (Embassy of Spain)
April 29 - July 21
The Embassy of Spain in The Netherlands is thrilled to announce that the Spanish artist Elena Bajo, with their project Plant manifesto, has been selected to be artist in residence between April 29 and July 21, 2021, at the European Centre for Ceramics EKWC in Oisterwijk.
The program, which is supported by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), is known as Sundaymorning@EKWC. The EKWC, center of excellence for ceramics, is located in the former dyeing and tannery of the Royal United Leather Factory in Oisterwijk, in the southern part of the Netherlands. A monumental building, that once was the largest leather factory in Europe. For over 50 years, world-class artists, designers and architects have worked here to experiment with clay, the result of their activities being special works of art and technical innovations.
Elena Bajo is an artist, choreographer and co-founder of the LA collective D’CLUB dedicated to climate action. They works both individually and collectively, with an interdisciplinary approach of choreography, sculpture, performance, architecture, life sciences, text, and video. The EKWC center can be visited through a guided tour that lasts around 75 minutes. Many of the processes followed by the artists will be explained, in addition to getting to know first-hand, unpublished works.
