MagiC Carpets Artist Presentations: Bora Baboci, Anca Benera / Arnold Estefan
On Monday 26 August artists Anca Benera, Arnold Estefan and Bora Bobaci will present an informal introduction to their work and plans for the 39th EVA International. The artists have been on residency in Limerick for the month of August as part of the MagiC Carpets programme, funded by Creative Europe. The event will take place at Narrative 4, O’Connell Street, Limerick, from 6pm, and is free with no booking required. Refreshments will be provided.
Anca Benera and Arnold Estefan (Romania) are collaborators who have worked together since 2011. Their work in installation, video and performance uses research-based methodologies to reveal the invisible patterns that lie behind certain historical, social, or geopolitical narratives. Their recent work investigates the phenomenon of man-made landscapes around the world, where the making and marking of landscape (as a form of spatial modification) goes hand in hand with heightened state violence and the overexploitation of resources. Recent exhibitions include: Musée des civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée, Marseille (2019) and Metropolitan Art Centre, Belfast (2018).
Bora Baboci (Albania) is an artist with a background in architecture and urbanism who works across wide range of media including drawing, installation, and performance. She was recently a resident at the ZKU / Center for Art and Urbanistics, Berlin, prior to which she worked as researcher and academic assistant at the Technischen Universität –Berlin, focusing on experimental housing and public typologies within the context of global migration.
