Res Artis Awards experience: The residency of Riccardo Giacconi at Villa Ruffieux.
Two Res Artis members, KulttuuriKauppila in Finland and Villa Ruffieux Residency Program in Switzerland awarded two artists, among the participants, with a fully funded artist residency. The winners were Ivana Radovanovich (KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre) and Riccardo Giacconi (Villa Ruffieux).
Riccardo Giacconi concluded his two-months residency at Villa Ruffieux with the following impressions:
“During the residency I worked on the editing of a new film that I am realizing, produced by Sky Arte and Careof (Milano). The film is a portrait of Italian singer Alberto Camerini, and the residency at Villa Ruffieux, with its wonderful location and breathtaking landscape allowed me to plunge completely into the editing process.
Furthermore, I am working on two projects with Blauer Hase, my collective. We are editing two new issues of Paesaggio, the periodical publication we edit, and we are preparing this year’s edition of the Helicotrema festival of collective listening, which we curate since 2012”
