HIRIKIT / WROCLAW (2014)

We are collective HORMAN POSTER ( Igor de Quadra and Matxalen de Pedro).

We are artists from Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain) and have been invited to Wroclaw for an artistic residency as part of an exchange between Donostia/San Sebastian 2016 and Wroclaw  2016 (European Cultural Capitals).

Our artistic project in residence in Wroclaw is called HIRI KIT (HIRI means city, in basque) and consists on creating an audio guide of personal and/or collective stories related to a site of the city of Wroclaw.

At the present, we are looking for residents in Wroclaw  that would like to participate in taking us to a spot of the city and telling us a story related to it. We are doing it already, slowly, and we´d like to ask for some help in finding more people.

Would you like to participate in our artistic project? Contact us (before 11th August):

HIRIKIT

Bada dioenik hiri bakoitza giza gorputz baten gisakoa dela,
bere belaun, buru, beso eta heroinaz zulaturiko zainekin
Harkaitz Cano (Bizkarrean tatuaturiko
mapak)

The city is a discourse and this discourse is truly a language: the city speaks to
its inhabitants, we speak our city, the city where we are, simply by living in it.
Roland Barthes (Semiology and the Urban)
