On February 24th, 2018 the artists in residence at the House on the Hill opened up their spaces of work - To experiment with a process - A way of sharing their thoughts. Each artist had found a way to occupy the place. To build their own spaces of intimacy in which they were able to create their work.
Anyone who has ever been to Arts Letters & Numbers knows the importance of our local community. There is an honest and deep trust and care that has been built over the years, and they keep their engagement and welcomeness to each and everyone who spends time at Arts Letters & Numbers. For an artist in residence, like Justine Langella, the influence of this warm community can be bigger than expected. Spending 8 weeks in residence, in wintertime, Justine built strong bounds to the community, fellow artists in residence as well as session participants. Over the course of time her body of work gradually became the community, and the community became her body of work.
One of the works Justine developed during her time in residence was Ecran de Veille, where she combined her deep interest in traditional family dinners and the experience of our community. This performative mixed media installation was show on February 4th, 2018:
