SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.

Artistic residence

39 artists from all over Europe met for one purpose. Interpretation of symbols in cemeteries.

During the Symbols project we had 2 artistic residencies. First in Aviles, Spain, where printmakers created prints based on their visits of cemeteries at home.

Second in Dundee, Scotland, where dancers and musicians got together and created videos of dances based on those prints.

Result is an impressive exhibition that opened officially in Genoa in March 2016. Even more, visitors of the cemeteries are already able to enjoy the artistic interpretations of the symbols through the mobile guide

In future we expect hundreds of monuments in the cemeteries across Europe connected in the European cemeteries route to have these interpretations available.
