IDENSITAT
Arts Project

IDENSITAT is an arts project investigating ways of impacting upon the public sphere through creative proposals related to place and territory in their spatial, temporal and social dimensions. A complex system, IDENSITAT incorporates other projects, actions or interventions, expanding into a number of different places and contexts. IDENSITAT promotes a variety of creative strategies for the realisation of activities which combine research, production, cultural management, education and communication. A system based on collaborative dynamics in order to create an intersection between contemporary artistic practices and other disciplines, developing mechanisms for connecting to specific ambits of social space.

Under the maxim, “experimenting in place to transform artistic practices, and to experiment with artistic practices to transform a place”, ID highlights the active role which art plays within the social context, while also highlighting the capacity of art to disseminate cultural content in a wider context. IDENSITAT collaborates with artists and creators from various fields, connecting them to individuals or collectives working in local contexts. IDENSITAT offers an itinerant production environment, that travels widely with proposals and projects which open up spaces for critical reflection and analysis, and to generate visions for transformation linked to public space.

Based upon micro-projects and self-management, but with a broader perspective on the physical and temporal scope of activities, IDENSITAT establishes networks, generates spaces for reciprocity and programmes in the medium and long term, in order to build a meaningful environment before, during and after a project. It is about facilitating continuity, and generating the appropriate rhythms between action and involvement to make this continuity effective.

    A year. That’s how long it’s been since Karla Hiraldo Voleau’s exhibition Another Love Story first opened at the MEP in Paris in 2022. A year is also the timeframe of the story chronicled in that project – a love story personal to KHV, which shifts abruptly from its climax to its end when she discovers that X, her lover, is leading a double life – a revelation that prompts the artist to question her certainties.
