This is a collaboration between, Amy Caterina, photographer, (America artist), and Beatrice Magalotti, sculptor (Australian Artist). We met in Iceland in 2018 and have continued a dialogue relating to our art practices.
A+B Project_Vol 2
Volume 2 is currently a work in progress. Amy and I will be part of an Art Residency at Arte Studio Ginestrelle, Assisi, Italy in September – October 2023. At Arte Studio Ginestelle we will be working towards Vol 2, incorporating images not only taken in America and Australia but also images taken in Italy, in particular areas around the art residency.
We will produce a number of photographs, documented installations, and a number of textile pieces during our 3-week residency. These will form part of the finished work. The residency will give us the opportunity to work together in the same place, with the community of creators in Assisi.
Our work will draw on our individual experiences from two different continents and meld these together with the Italian environment. Once finished, a copy of our book will be presented to the residency along with a digital link.
Due to the pandemic and not being able to meet we decided in 2020 to collaborate in a visual project using digital apps and programs. This project is a visual discussion of images and textiles between Amy and I, where we are responding to each other’s works. This is volume 1 of our project.
This Digital book made up of 27 pages is a visual discussion of drawings, images and textiles between Amy Caterina and Beatrice Magalotti, where each artist was responding to each other’s works. The text in the book is a selection of discussions between Amy and Beatrice using WhatsApp, most of the text selected used for this book has been taken from 2020.
This project won the main prize in online exhibition run by artaviso :
Elsewhere & Other Places…
‘When you really just want to be somewhere else … real or imagined actual or constructed. factual or fictitious. When we need to escape the real world and creativity is the perfect escape hatch.’
