INSIDE IS OUTSIDE, OUTSIDE IS INSIDE
A MULTIMEDIA EVENT



A temporary intervention by Aguila in the landscape, making the idea of a dynamic,interactive museum concrete
in the form of ephemerical architecture by multimedia installations.

The site is situated at the river Guadiana in the Portuguese Algarve and the event, supported by the foundation Ciudad del Hombre,
takes place during Summer - autumn 2005 (15/08 to 15/10).

Aguila invites all artists, architects, landscape architects, installators, land art artists, multimedia artists, sculptors,

A dynamic, social museum, in its temporariness and interactivity.
Construction filled in by projection.
Screens that are tensed in differents ways, determined and created by different video projections
onto the outer wall.
Thus I want to create an ephemerical architecture according
to the intention of the projected images.
This limited inner space, thus created, makes place for on-line works.

BASIC OUTLINE

DENOMINATION: ART-COMMUNICATION. THE EVENT. ALGARVE 2006.

PLACE: FOZ DE ODELEITE (ALGARVE - PORTUGAL)

DATE: 15 AUGUST- 15 OKTOBER 2005

AIM: THE CREATION OF A DRAFT IN FORM OF AN EPHEMERICAL ARCHITECTURE AND MULTI-MEDIA ARTWORK, FOR A MUSEUM AND COMMUNICATION CENTRE FOR ARTISTS.

PARTICIPANTS:

PROCEDURE: ALL THE PARTICIPATING ARTISTS WILL GATHER THEIR IDEAS , MATERIALS, PROYECTIONS AND DIGITAL OR OTHER ART FORMS TO CREATE A DRAFT OR PROTOTYPE FOR THE FINAL CONSTRUCTION OF THIS MUSEUM AND COMMUNICATION CENTRE.

THE FIRST GUIDELINE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION IS TO USE VERY LIGHT MATERIALS AND TO START FORMING A COMPOSITION AND COMBINATION OF SPACES WHERE EVERY ARTIST DISPLAYS HIS ART, MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF PROYECTIONS ON SCREENS, BUT ANY OTHER ART FORM IS POSSIBLE. THIS WILL OBLIGE THE ARTISTS TO COOPERATE WITH ONE ANOTHER, BEARING IN MIND THEIR OWN ARTWORK BUT ALSO THE WHOLE.

THE STRUCTURE MUST ALWAYS REMAIN EASILY REMOVABLE AND WILL NOT BE BUILT TO STAY THERE.

WHEN THE EVENT IS FINISHED, AFTER THE FINAL SHOW, THE CONSTRUCTION WILL BE DISMANTLED. BEING NOT ONLY A MUSEUM, BUT ALSO A CENTRE FOR THE ARTISTS, THE CONSTRUCTION WILL ALSO HAVE TO BE BUILT TO LIVE IN DURING THE EVENT.

PARTICIPATION CAN BE ANY TIME BETWEEN THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF THE EVENT. THE DURATION OF PARTICIPATION OF THE ARTISTS IS NOT LIMITED NOR FIXED. IT CAN BE DURING ANY TIME THE EVENT GOES ON, OR ONLY FOR A FEW DAYS.

IMPACT ON NATURE: THE ART WORK AND CONSTRUCTION BEING AN EPHEMERICAL ARCHITECTURE, THE NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE SURROUNDING NATURE WILL (HAS TO) BE TOTALLY INEXISTANT. THE IMPACT ON THE PLOT WILL (HAS TO) BE MINIMAL, AND WILL ONLY CONSIST IN THE NORMAL USE OF ANY SPACE THAT IS QUITE HEAVILY WALKED ON FOR SOME MONTHS. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IMPACT WILL BE RESTAURED IN SOME WEEKS AFTER THE PLOT IS ABANDONED.

NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURE: AS THE AREA OF THE EVENT IS SITUATED FAR AWAY FROM ANY INFRASTRUCTURE, THE AIM WOULD BE TO BE AUTONOMOUS DURING THE WHOLE EVENT, WORKING WITH GENERATORS TO PROVIDE ELECTRICITY IF NECESSARY.

FOR THE EVENT: PLOT OF LAND OF APROX 300 M2

FOR THE PRACTICAL INFRASTRUCTURE: HIGIENIC INSTALLATION AS PER LOCAL REQUIREMENTS; RUBBISH TONS; FIRST AID: THE ORGANIZATION WILL PROVIDE A FIRST AID BOX.

FOR THE ARTISTS (TO BE PROVIDED BY THEMSELVES): TENTS, MATERIALS

LEGAL ASPECT:

PERMISSIONS: THE ORGANIZATION WILL COMPLY WITH THE NECESSARY PERMISSIONS INSURANCE: THE ORGANIZATION WILL PROBABLY HAVE ALL THE ARTISTS PAY AN INDIVIDUAL ALL RISK INSURANCE FOR THE DURATION OF THE EVENT. (PLEASE ASK US FOR DETAILS)

RESPONSIBILITY: THE ORGANIZING FOUNDATION HAS THE OVERALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE GENERAL STATE OF THE PLOT AND THE COMPLIANCE WITH ANY LAWS AND RULES, AS FAR AS THE EVENT IS CONCERNED. EVERY ARTIST OR PERSON WHO PARTICIPATES IN WHATEVER WAY IN THE EVENT IS HOWEVER FULLY REPONSIBLE FOR HIS/HER OWN BEHAVIOUR AND COMPLIANCE WITH PORTUGESE LAWS.

THE ORGANIZATION CONSIDERS THAT WHOEVER IS PRESENT ON THE AREA OF THE EVENT, IS SO BY PERMISSION OF THE PORTUGESE AUTHORITIES AND IN ANY CASE ON HIS/HER OWN RESPONSIBILITY IN WHICHEVER WAY.
