TRIANGULAR PROJECT is a collective of visual artists working with the theme of space. The artistic practises of Florine Leoni (Switzerland), Macarena Ruiz-Tagle (Chile) and Sandra Volny (Canada) draw a TRIANGLE - a three-sided shape based on three kinds of perception: perception of psychological/mental space, perception of optical/perceptual space, and aural & spatial awareness.

 

Working in situ, their interests and actions intertwine with the local community's culture, history and geography. Experimentation is their main tool in approaching the environment.

 

They consider the process as important as the final work of art. Collective work, side by side with invited participants, unfolds into a shared creation of knowledge.
