Fiamma Montezemolo’s art practice is conceptual and grounded in fieldwork research. As an Artist in Residence at the Headlands, she has expanded this dual vocation by transforming Project Space into a “potential space” (after British psychoanalyst D. W. Winnicott) in which the ex-military post is made into a playful laboratory of poetic, conceptual, and political interventions and collaborations. She thinks of the space as an atelier in which to collaborate with other creative producers and thinkers on temporary specific projects. The exhibition comprises four distinct projects that explore modes of existence between self and others. Each collaborative project inspired a second solo project by the artist, resulting in eight distinct new works. All are developed originally for what the artist calls a “collaborative solo,” with contributions from and/or relations to others.
Montezemolo’s collaborators for this exhibition are Sami Elhaik, José Parral, Rebecca Solnit, and Alejandro Zacarias.
