ABOUT THE WORK
Amalia Pascal’s practice mediates between art and heritage in order to reactivate social dynamics through research. Using dialogue as a creative tool, she creates collaborative propositions that encourage the expression of lived experiences and creates safe places where art practices and communities can co-develop, reflect and signify the inhabited place, with projects and processes rooted in local traditions.
For PP19 (Prescient Pool 2019) Amalia Pascal arrived in Folkestone as a complete stranger - as someone without any prior physical experience of the place. Through a psychogeographical experiment she recorded and followed a trail built in absentia, photographing and mapping to build an idea of the place, pairing intuitive responses with the logic of google map, and the stories of those she found on the ground.
These two photographs are part of this exercise and provide an unique opportunity to access Pascal’s process.
