I – Alessandro Agudio, Daniel Keller and Timur Si-Qin.

from February 26 to March 25, 2014 at Sandra Natali/MAMbo artists’ space + RAUM/Xing, Bologna


Siliqoon takes its first step in the world of artistic production by inviting the artists Alessandro Agudio (IT), Daniel Keller (USA) and Timur Si-Qin (D) for a month of residency and workshop in the Sandra Natali / MAMbo artists’ space + RAUM. We put artists into contact with 13 artisanal businesses, selected with the help of Confartigianato. The project will avail itself additionally of a network whose capacity opens the door to the possible, through collaborations with the Accademia di Belle Arti (Fine Art Academy) for the students who assist the artists, Xing/Raum for the working space and to Florence, with Villa Romana, through Jacopo Mazzetti’s ABIAD project.


March 20, 2014 at MAMbo – Via Don Minzoni 14, Bologna, took place a public meeting with artists Alessandro Agudio, Daniel Keller, Timur Si-Qin mediated by the curators Zoe De Luca, Bianca Stoppani and Giulia Mengozzi.
