Maria Luiga Gioffre, alumni MA Contempoary Photography at Central Saint Martins, has been selected for the AER residency at Associazione Culturale dello Scompiglio
Set up by Professor Lucy Orta UAL Chair of Art for the Environment – Centre for Sustainable Fashion in 2015, The Art for the Environment International Artist Residency Programme (AER) provides UAL graduates with the exceptional opportunity to apply for short residencies at one of our internationally renowned host institutions, to explore concerns that define the 21st century – biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy, and human rights. Through research, studio practice, critiques and mentoring the AER programme is designed to envision a world of tomorrow; to imagine and create work that challenges how we interact with the environment and each other.

PERFORMANCE PROJECT RESIDENCY – MARIA LUIGIA GIOFFRE
Following the aesthetic of my durational performances, Penelope’s White Wall (2017) and Pangea (2017) and Spianatura della sabbia per la genesi della Polvere (2018) I would work with performance and installation at the core of the process in order to produce a work that functions in continuity with the previous ones.
