    Formas Partilhadas – Terracota workshop with Formabesta

    Terracota workshop oriented by the artist collective Formabesta (Juan and Salvador Cidrás), in partnership with Ó! Cerâmica.

    Based on the idea of ​​“playing” and “learning by doing”, this workshop starts from a series of traditional clay shapes to carry out a continuous process of transformation into other forms that arise from improvisation, chance and collaborative action. As Bruno Munari reminds us, what matters is the possibility of playing with countless possibilities, incessantly changing, testing and testing. Only then, "the mind becomes flexible, the thinking dynamic: the creative individual".

    Salvador Cidrás and Vicente Blanco are visual artists and professors in the area of ​​Visual Expression at the University of Santiago de Compostela at the Facultad de Formación de Profesorado de Lugo. Graduates in Fine Arts from the Universidad de Vigo, PhDs in Humanities (USC) and Fine Arts (UGR), respectively, and graduates in Ceramics from EASD Ramón Falcón, Lugo, they develop their artistic research in different mediums, such as video, drawing, sculpture and installation. Their work has been exhibited individually in different contemporary art museums, such as the Museo Reina Sofia (Madrid), CGAC (Compostela), MUSAC (León), as well as in several group exhibitions.
    Part of the public programme of the exhibition “Pés de Barro”, curated by Chus Martínez and Filipa Ramos.
