WOOL @ DJERBAHOOD

Project by Galerie Itinerrance

"After the success
of the Portuguese group presented at the project TOUR PARIS 13, the mentor
Mehdi Ben Cheikh, invited again the WOOL (Lara Seixo Rodrigues) to select a
small group of urban artists to integrate the new and ambitious project of
Galerie Itinerrance on the island of Djerba, Tunisia.

During the
months of July and August, a selection of more than 150 artists from the 4
corners of the world (30 nationalities), took turns at every 7 days to leave
their mark in the traditional village of Erriadh, who became a space of
multicultural expression, a new movement for a country in (trans)formation ',
explained the project mentor Mehdi Ben Cheikh.

To the
artists from countries such as Brazil, Japan, China, Morocco, Saudi Arabia,
Australia, UK or Spain, among many others, was only requested the execution of
one (or more) original artwork, taking into account the authenticity and
specificity of the local environment, always looking for an aesthetic
appreciation of it."

"The presence
of the Portuguese group in this unique art project, formed by ADD FUEL, MÁRIO
BELÉM and ARRAIANO, between the 7th and 15th July 2014, allowed once again to
express the quality and national hallmark, but most of all, to enjoy an equally
unique and memorable experience, both the interaction between artists, as the
experience of a culture and daily sharing with local and traditional community
in such a unique moment in its history'."
