Almanach – Artist’s book

Almanach will involve both research and practical work to create an art installation that creatively redefines relationship dynamics in cultural and geographic contexts.

Although Sérgio Leitao tends to show my work as mixed-technique installations, he often creates stand-alone pieces using different techniques, such as drawing and painting. Almanach is a project under way that was presented for the first time at the Biennial of Contemporary Arts in Portugal and spread to Italy. To continue the series at the Massana, he will start by doing background research that will take shape in individual drawings and an artist’s book. Both will be a compilation of visual references, as a way to build a portrait of the city, the surrounding landscapes and the communities that live there. "I hope this project mobilises the public on pathways to alternative collective and personal mappings". A book will be published soon with all the series that make up Almanach.
