Art contains in itself a revolutionary quid, that is to provide possibilities to look at the configuration of the things in the world in a different way from that to which one was used. Art can change the perception of life that one has had up to that time. To those thoughts, Andrea Pagnes, artist and curator at VestAndPage (Venice, Italy), reconsiders artist in residencies as not mere hosting institutional (or private) containers, but as laboratories of continuative production of ideas, also to reinforce the concept that a work of art is the end result of a specific process.
