Homecoming II

This was the last instalment of a collaborative exchange programme between Void Art School, Derry and ISFCI, Rome, curated by Maria Rosa Sossai and Claudia Rampelli from ALA Accademia Libera delle Arti.
Five young artists from Derry took part in a two-week residency in Rome exploring the medium of photography within the context of contemporary art. Hosted by the Istituto Superiore di Fotografia e Comunicazione Integrata (ISFCI) and under the tuition of Ottavio Celestino, the Northern Irish artists had unfettered access to professional equipment and key facilities. Earlier in the year, five Rome based photographers had visited Derry and work created during the two residencies was exhibited in both cities.
As a result of this residency exchange, the artist collective META was formed by participating artists from both cities and is still actively making work and organising exhibitions in both countries.
