Now on View in Argentina

The exhibition bridges the gap of time space and distance in an exhibition created out of the International Frag Exchanges of members of GLOBAL ART PROJECT, a group of 75 working artists operating in 17 countries collaborating toward the creation of new works and opportunities within and outside of the traditional gallery-museum system in artist generated actions.

GAP / frag ( Project ):

frags: the fragments, the raw materials that might become elements of mixed-media collages or paintings...torn found papers, billboard-tears, fabric, canvas and throw-away's that are given new life by another thing new; a way to collaborate via the mail and internet as well as in-person... mixed-media work derived from the exchange between members of Global Art Project; relinquishing responsibility or ownership going beyond the original intention of an image or idea broken down into fragments (frags) resulting in a deconstruction, a re-ordering of the visual universe into new ways of seeing.

Global ART Project : the collaborative future

Lecce is situated in the farthest southern Italian Puglia region in the toe of the boot and is a medieval baroque jewel with many supportive friends and  area artists that GAP has cultivated over the years. 

Art Residency : workshops, demonstrations, community art actions, performance, The YES Lecce ! exhibition of member's works, solo and collaborative studio time, talks at area art universities and centers, invitations to serve as Puglia area resident guest artists by invitation ... GLOBAL ART PROJECT: "promoting the creative intelligence of the international arts community since 2013."

For the better part of this year GAP has  been in negotiations with a group of exceptional Belgian artists who, in the course of our conversations, have looked at several options as to how we might collaborate, interact and share practice and projects. These artists, Ils Lambrichts, Eline Ouwendijk, Frédérique Rennuit (aka Harrys Shades), Marianne Van Herreweghe, Anke Vielfont and Ingrid Westhovens have been greatly influenced by the GAP Frag Exchange Project creating a number of ongoing exhibitions and projects resulting in compelling sculptural, assemblage and mixed media collaborative works in Lier, Belgium. The fruit of our conversations has coalesced to produce: FRAGS & FLARDEN (the tattered remains of dreams) : an exhibition which resonates with the essence of the GAP International Frag Exchange Project; recycling discards, refuse, "failures", left overs, scraps and bits, billboard fragments, notes, journal writing, poems, found materials, bus transfers -- the fragments of practice and the culture, passing them on to another and allowing the creation of new work that would never exist without a generosity of perception and a collaborative spirit.
