Ubiquitous Tribe

Fabbrica del Vapore, from 4th July to 30th September 2015, Milan

Ubiquitous Tribe uses the “Sala delle Colonne” as a temporary research laboratory and the artists in residency as unaware performers during the 3 month project curated by Progetto Citta Ideale. The new Homo Faber continuosly inhabits a Fab Lab of the scrap, between real and virtual, no more penned in a physical space, but ubiquitous. As in the Turbinenfabrik by Peter Behrens, the space of the Sala delle Colonne will be transformed in a sacred space, a celebrative temple of the new paradigm. In Ubiquitous Tribe, starting from a series of basic and modular elements, decontextualised from the classic environment of use, the artist will be able to shape autonomously their work space. The individual possibility to realise their own habitat becomes the fundamental step to test this new world, comparing the digitalization with the materiality of the physical space. During the 3 months of residency the space will be used as a place of dialogue and debate, involving the artists to reasoning and re-thinking their relationship with the work space. The project was part of the “Progetto Città Ideale”.
