With in gaps & patches, Heine Avdal & Yukiko Shinozaki / fieldworks bring together improvisation and abstraction in an investigation of the place of the body in public space. In an ongoing sculptural dialogue and search for interaction with the environment, they explore different types of outdoor locations.

During this residency in Florence, from November 7 to 15, Avdal and Shinozaki will explore the space of the Parco delle Cascine together with five performers performer – Carolina Amoretti, Luisa Cortesi, Valerio Palladino, Stefano Questorio, Oleg Soulimenko – the writer Jesse Poe and the artist Olga Pavlenko. The group will also be followed by the videomaker Rebecca Lena and the photographer Giampaolo Becherini who will document the work.
