The Loisaida Inc. Center is proud to announce

The 2017 Loisaida Artists in Residence:

Poncili Creación

About Poncili

Poncili Creación conceptualizes and designs interactive experiences for all ages. The company has been conspiring for over half a decade, in which they have shared their work with several countries throughout their international tours to the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. Their creation technique consists of several disciplines which lead them to create complex structures that resemble different forms through different mechanisms and means of creation. These objects, often humanized, can induce placebos and metaphorical experiences to the spectating mind that often goes from passive interaction to active observation, in the attempt of decoding what happens and transforms before their eye. They currently reside in Puerto Rico and dedicate their time to the study of objects and reality.


Description of Residency

During the month of May Poncili Creacion will be studying the Loisaida community and its mural history in order to produce a performance piece that speaks about the problems that the community faces and has faced in the past.

Inspired by Loisaida Poncili will create several of their unique sculptures based on loisaidas murals and community.

With these elements they will create a performance to be presented in Loisaida Festival and in the High-Line later in the month, to accompany the performance they have designed a mural workshop that will be taught in Loisaida and the High-Line as well.
