Mourning Becomes Electra II

This was the second leg of Mourning Becomes Electra, following on from the previous collaborative residency exchange that had taken place in Rome. In this second instalment four young artists from Rome took part in a career development experience in Derry, continuing the dialogue previously initiated in Rome with the four local artists. The participants teamed up in order to explore diverse creative approaches to the theme suggested by curators Maria Rosa Sossai and Claudia Rampelli, using resources and support from the Void Art School.
During 2013 Derry was host to the UK City of Culture and the Italian graduates had the opportunity to visit major exhibitions and events and also to receive tailored talks from curator Gregory McCartney and artists Ackroyd & Harvey and Locky Morris.
The work resulting from Mourning Becomes Electra I & II was exhibited both in Rome and Derry, and for most of the participants this represented their first opportunity to take part in an international exhibition.
