Argentinean artist Fernanda Piamonti has been awarded many national and international awards during her career. In 2008, she participated in an International Scholarship in Saint Martí de Empuriers, Spain, with the idea of working with “the circular space.” Terraces of overlooks allowed her to see complete 360 degree panoramic views. In 2014 and 2016, she obtained artist residencies in the Cité International des Arts, Paris in order to carry out a project on the aerial panoramic. The panoramic works delved into the search of a space that unites, overlaps, converges and sustains itself, both artistically and symbolically, just as bridges do.
This entire journey has motivated her to investigate even further, this time in a collective and collaborative group with the students of High Point University. Painting a bridge will create a unity amongst the group, representative of a bridge’s unification of two places. The unconventional tools that will be used to devise this bridge will be the foundation, much as the supports of a bridge hold it up. It will be seen represented on an enormous paper. In the trajectory of a bridge, the visual field suggests that there is a place to be discovered: the union of many originalities, resources, and artistic strategies and techniques. We will learn to respect one another through much discussion and complete the structural map of the image as a team.
