The winning young artists will live ten intense days of work in Sardinia – where Casa Falconieri has its headquarter – in laboratory 2 in Serdiana, a small town in the spaces of the largest wine estates in Sardinia; space and nature, space and sun, space and wind, in an overwhelming and stunning equilibrium.
Upon his arrival in Sardinia, the award winner will be gifted with a unique early twentieth’s century bicycle in order to explore the surrounding countryside, while a small crew will follow him and shoot a short commercial, balancing between nature and art. The cyclist-artist ‘will catch’ with mental images the surrounding space – the medieval church of Sibiola and Stani Saliu with its vineyards – to give life to its own utopia territory, looking for signs and equilibriums, smells and passions that will become the subject of research in the engraving workshop.
The winner will be selected by a committee composed by Gabriella Locci, President of Casa Falconieri and Dario Piludu, Artistic Director of Casa Falconieri and Fig Bilbao along with the direction board of SetUp Simona Gavioli and Alice Zannoni.
The announcement will take place Friday 27 January from 20:00 to 21:00 in the Talk Area.

Reasons: for the depiction defined with an imaginative stroke, operating as a modern alchemist outlining a very personal universe, the Residence Award Casa Falconieri 2017 goes to Stefano Gioda represented by Eggers 2.0 Let’s do it together from Turin.
