LAKE PUBLISHING LAUNCHES ECO ART INCUBATOR CYPRUS: Sites Embodied : Curriculum, Catalogue, Contemplations by Nancy Holmes and Denise Kenney
In April 2017, Nancy Holmes and Denise Kenney were invited to facilitate Eco Art Incubator Cyprus: Sites Embodied, in collaboration with the European Dance Network and Dance Gate Lefkosia as part of the programming for the Eco Art Projects associated with Paphos 2017 European Capital of Culture. The Eco Art Incubator Cyprus workshop and performance series brought together local and visiting artists from various disciplines throughout Europe to research ecological art methodologies as they pertain to a particular contested site. These artists shared their expertise and used site-specific embodied research to generate new artistic and ecological resonances. The intent was for artists to experiment with their own practice through a thematic lens and to seed practices for ongoing engagements in this region. This catalogue documents that experience. It also includes several of the exercises and methods participants used and, through images and writing, it offers a record of the performances and works that were created over the workshop period.
The book can be purchased through two online retailers located in Canada- www.chapters.indigo.ca and www.amazon.ca . Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com in the U.S. and Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/ in the UK also carry the title, as well as many other online retailers in China, Germany, Italy, India, Poland, Russia, South Korea, and Spain.
