DONOSTIARTEAN AZOKARAKO STANDAREN DISEINUA


STANDAREN DISEINUA.
**BEZEROA: **Ayuntamiento de Irun

Donostiartean arte garaikideko azokarako stand-a diseinua eta eraikuntza. Azoka hau 2017ko uztailaren 20tik 23ra ospatu zen.

Bitamine Faktoria sormen lantegiaren proposamena forma-minimalismoan eta argitasunean oinarritzen da. Azalera stand esku-hartze soila burutzen da, komunikatu nahi den mezua indartzeko xedez: Irungo udalak bultzatzen dituen proiektuen izaera berritzailea.Interiorismoak elementu erakargarria sortzen du, sartzeko gonbitea luzatzeko. Horretarako, sarbide bat eratu da, zurezko egitura bat eraikiz, kirol-sare batekin bilduta eta puxika zuriz beteta. Barne hormetan, informazio-biniloak itsatsi dira, proiektuen filosofia era grafikoan irudikatzeko baita Irungo udalaren logoa eskuz margotutako ohol bi ere. Bestalde, proiektuen izaera bi bideoren bitartez zabaltzen da, zurez egindako euskarri banatan jarrita.

RIBERA #1

THE MEMORY OF THE BIDASOA THROUGH ART

The RI8ERA project is taking place in a specific setting of activity: the festivity of the Bidasoa River is going to meet with the 250th anniversary of the disannexation and creation of the city of Irun and also with the centenary of the Avenida Bridge construction.

The proposal is based on the artistic interpretation of the historical and anthropological materials about events that took place around the Avenue Bridge. The projects are developed by various artists, technicians, researchers and groups; mostly locals, who have contributed to common reflections on the geographical-temporal space. They came from different disciplines and the proposals articulated along three main axes: the river, the memory and contemporary art.

The public presentation will be held in two days. The first, in the public space around the Avenida Bridge will take place on Saturday 24 September 2016. It aims to recover the river's geographical space through the dynamics of creation, sensations and experiences; recalling history in a transversal way from contemporary art through the hybridization of disciplines such as mediation, technology, contemporary artistic practices and landscape design. The second day, scheduled for 6 October at the CBA cultural centre, aims to distribute and publicize the artistic projects in which the artists has worked, and to show what the working processes have been like, inviting the public for a collective reflection.

The program presented the following works, created specifically for Ribera:

Word of border
Javier San Martinen, Aloña Zubizarretare & Maider Likona - “Pescando Aniversarios”, “Sonidos del pasado”
Jeongsoo Lim - “Give me your name”
Parasite - “Camino narrado”

The new invisible border

RIBERA #2

THE MEMORY OF THE BIDASOA THROUGH ART

The second edition of the Ribera project was held on Saturday 23 September 2017 on the banks of the Bidasoa River. This initiative highlights the cultural and historical legacy of the river and the water as the revitalizing force behind our lives. Throughout the day, various artists and groups intervened in this space with installations, projections, dance, and music.

The program included various installations and actions by Bitamine Faktoria as well; the mobile gallery Kubo Beltza Project by Pau Figueres with "Echoes of Bidasoa"; "Walls of Memory" by GKo Gallery; the contemporary dance piece by Myriam Pérez Cazabon "Nere azalean arrotz"; a forum theatre, the result of the Ribera Grant directed by Alazne Corral and Gorka Álvarez; the performance of the duo LUMI; and the "Expanded Landscape Bidasoa" projections by Jaime de los Ríos.

In addition, Ribera proposed a presentation on October 5 2017, at the CBA cultural center, with the aim to distribute and publicize the artistic process in which the artists were involved, to show how the work processes have been, inviting the public to a collective reflection.

The Ribera project is an initiative promoted by the Irun City Council within the framework of the Irun Factory, a program for the promotion of creative industries and artistic creation which focus on the decentralization and visibility of art in public spaces.

RIBERA #3

THE MEMORY OF BIDASOA THROUGH ART

This program is promoted by the Irun City Council and managed by Bitamine Faktoria. It values the memory of the Bidasoa River through practices linked to contemporary art, as a tool to recover the river bank and strengthen its link with the citizens, recalling its role as a revitalizing factor of society.

Ribera is presented over two days in early autumn. The first and main day was developed in the surroundings of the Bidasoa with the objective to recover the geographical space of the river by means of dynamics of creation, perception and experience, remembering history in a transversal way. The second day was held at the CBA Cultural Centre with the aim to distribute the artistic processes and their results by inviting the public to a collective reflection.

The programme for this third edition included the following proposals: ECOS DEL BIDASOA, a sound installation by Bitamine Faktoria located in the former barracks of the carabineros in the area of Osinbiribil that included the stories of Virginia Gasull (1943) and Eneko Arcas (Deia); the TRAVEL BOOK participative activities; painting and drawing in the open air, promoted by Juncal Alfonso & Arantza Albisu (Il Duomo), and STORIES OF PEDALS, a bicycle narrated walk, told by Idoia Castro (Oiasso Museum), Ana Galdós, Fernando García Nieto, Mikel Huarte & Heidi Otaduy (Ribera Scholarship) and Ion Aranguren (Sos Racismo / Irungo Harrera Sarea). The program also included PAREDES DE LA MEMORIA, a mural intervention by Xabier Anunzibai under the viaduct on Santiago Street. For its part, Bitamine Faktoria designed CHECKPOINT, a device that served as an information and meeting point; LA PLAYA, an installation to contemplate on the Bidasoa; and SELFIE POINTS, an intervention that vindicates the riverbank as a tourist attraction. The day concluded with performances by Eneko Alcaraz (Cia. Ekilore) with his contemporary dance piece "Sorginak kanpora"; and Sur Le Feel, a jazz manouche trio that provided the soundtrack for the PIQUE-NIQUE CONCERT. Finally, the research project "La Isla de los Faisanes, modos de narrar la Historia", by Iván Gómez and Iraitz Agirre (Ribera Scholarships) was accomplished.

Berdinen arteko topaketa eta elkartruke lekua.
Asteartero, 16:00etatik 18:00etara.
2015eko Maiatzaren 12tik ekainaren 16ra

Baliabideak izatea ez da bakarrik lanerako espazio bat izatea.
Argi dago gaur egun gure etxea izan daitekeela. Espazioak beste gauza erakargarriak izan behar ditu arlo honetako komunitatea aglutinatzeko.
Egingarri diren adibide batzuk hurrengo hauek dira: baliabideen informazioa, kontaktuak erraztea, proiektuen tutorizazioa, iturrien laguntza (liburuak, artistak, kudeaketa-ereduak, beste enpresa kreatiboen adibideak, etab), kontseilu fiskalak, finantziazio medioak. Ekimen kulturalak azkarrago, errazago eta ziurrago jaurti ahal izatearekin erlazionatutako gauzak.
Hortaz, behar hau formalki programatutako tailer edo jardunaldietatik kanpo kontaktuak egiteko aukera batean bilakatu daiteke.
Formatu lasaia da baita planteamendu hauei jarraipena eta soluzioak emateko topaketa lekua ere. Espazio hau publiko guztiari irekita dago eta bertan komunitate artistikoak orokorrean planteatutako gai guztiak bideratuko dira.

A TOWN THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY #1

ARTE GARAIKIDEA EREMU PUBLIKOAN
Bitamine Faktorian forma hartutako ekimena da A Town That Makes You Happy, eta esku-hartze, ekintza eta lantegi parte-hartzaileei esker eremu publikoan eragin positiboa sortzea du xede. Jakin dakigunez gizartea eraldatzeko tresna boteretsua dela artea, hiri-paisaia aldatu egin nahi dugu, inguratzen gaituena edertzeko. Adibidez, gris-kolorea besterik ez zegoen tokietan koloretako arrastoa uztea, altxatutako horma zatietan mapak kartografiatzea, edo iragarki oldarkorrez jositako paneletan mezu adeitsuak islatzea. Aipatutako adibideak lan iragankorrak diren arren, pertsonen eta tokien memorian diraute luzaroan. Proiektu honek artea ohiko tokietatik at eramaten du, jendarteak ahaztuta dituen edo haientzat ikusezinak diren tokiak hautatuta, tokiotan nekez antolatzen baitira jarduera edo ekitaldi ikusgarriak.

A Town That Makes You Happy ekitaldiaren lehenengo edizioak arte garaikidearen inguruko hainbat esku-hartze proposatu zituen gure egoitzaren auzoa den Larreaundin. Ekimen horretan, eskualdeko artisten, bizilagunen, denden eta enpresen iritziak bildu ziren, auzo erakargarriago eta lagunkoiago bat diseinatzeko.

2018ko urriaren 6an (larunbata) gauzatutako proiektua Loiolako Iñigo kalean garatu zen; hots, Bitamine Faktoriaren egoitzaren kalean. A Town That Makes You Happy proiektuaren helburua eremu publikoan eta pertsonen umorean eragin positiboa sorraraztea da, tokiko, Gipuzkoako eta Euskadiko emakume sortzaile talde batek auzorako pentsatutako esku-hartze, ekintza eta lantegi parte-hartzaileen bidez. Eguna girotzeko, herri-bazkari bat antolatu zen, bazkalondo eta guzti, bai eta Sara Mansilla eta Moon djs musikariek eskainitako zuzeneko saio bat ere.

A TOWN THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY #2

ARTE GARAIKIDEA EREMU PUBLIKOAN
Bitamine Faktorian forma hartutako ekimena da A Town That Makes You Happy, eta esku-hartze, ekintza eta lantegi parte-hartzaileei esker eremu publikoan eragin positiboa sortzea du xede. Jakin dakigunez gizartea eraldatzeko tresna boteretsua dela artea, hiri-paisaia aldatu egin nahi dugu, inguratzen gaituena edertzeko.

Aipatutako adibideak lan iragankorrak diren arren, pertsonen eta tokien memorian diraute luzaroan. Proiektu honek artea ohiko tokietatik at eramaten du, jendarteak ahaztuta dituen edo haientzat ikusezinak diren tokiak hautatuta, tokiotan nekez antolatzen baitira jarduera edo ekitaldi ikusgarriak.

A Town That Makes You Happy proiektuaren bigarren edizioak muina mantendu egin zuen (eremu publikoan parte hartzea, alegia); formatua, berriz, aldatu. Oraingoan, enpresa handien kanpainetarako erabili ohi diren hainbat publizitate-eremu okupatzean zetzan proiektua, modu iragankorrean haietan esku hartzeko, artelanen ohol izan zitezen. Hausnarketarako gonbidapen diren eta nahasmena/harridura sorrarazten duten lanen bidez, komunikazioaren eta kontsumoaren inguruko kontzientziazioa suspertu nahi zen proiektuarekin.

Abenduaren lehen bi asteetan zehar, lanak eremu publikoan jarri ziren ikusgai, artearekin bateragarriak izan ohi ez diren euskarri eta tokietan. Programazioa osatzeko, emakume artista gonbidatuetako laurekin eta Transbitarekin topaketak antolatu ziren. Azken hori Bitamine Faktoriak sortutako karabana ibiltaria da, zeinak hiriko auzo eta kaleetan barrena Estíbaliz Sádabak egindako ibilbidearen lan audiobisuala erakusten baituen.

EMOTIONAL CARTOGRAPHY OF BIDASOA

This research and action project has been developed in tandem with the anthropologist and historian María José Noain and Bitamine Faktoria as an artistic collective. It was awarded a Ribera Grant from the Irun City Council. These grants are aimed at activating a permanent framework in the field of human sciences and art for projects whose object of study is the border territory, especially the Bidasoa river and its surroundings.

The participation of the community has been fundamental during the nine-month-long process of mapping the emotions linked to the Bidasoa region. Research and action have focused on interaction with local inhabitants through surveys, personal and group interviews, actions in the public space and workshops with primary school children.

In this way, the bibliographic research has been enriched with the collection of oral testimonies and personal perception about the river both in its symbolic and plastic dimension. The end result is a timeless polyhedral story in the form of a fold-out map that reflects the emotions shared by citizens. All in all, an artistic creation inspired by an active research into the emotional cartography of Bidasoa.

ITSASARGI & KIMA /- INSTALLATIONS

Bitamine Faktoria designs and directs a specific artistic project for the Christmas market. A team effort and in collaboration with a score of artists to attract attention and focus on the local creative community in a turbulent and complicated year for the sector. The market is an activity promoted by the City and Economy Impulse Area of ​​the Irun City Council.

ITSASARGI
Itsasargi catches our attention and invites us to look from another perspective, to be more aware of what surrounds us. This visual metaphor enlightens us and makes us imagine the good that is to come.

Occupy space, the void that fills the air in its immensity. The accumulation of forms illuminates the dimension of what surrounds us. *

A visual metaphor that invites us to stop and observe around us what we are not aware of. *

Moments that pass so slowly that they push us to contemplate. *

We often think that art and culture are constantly springing up, we believe that they are an endless spring. But like our trees, we must take care of the culture and the artists, so that they continue to grow. *

This year the tips of the branches look different in the trees in the square. Their art flows, and they protect us like a lush forest on a rainy day. *
