Residency AC/E and Gasworks 2018

This Residency is an opportunity that will enable an aspiring artist based in the Spain to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks. The selected artist has been Antoni Hervàs. He will enjoy this residency in London from 2 April – 18 June 2018 (11 weeks). Gasworks’ residencies are opportunities for self-led professional development, artistic exchange and experimentation.

Antoni Hervàs was born in Barcelona in 1981. Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. He studied Engraving and Stamping at the Llotja School in the same city. Among his numerous citations with culture, art and the world of fanzines - in which he has a suggestive voice of his own - he has participate in La noche de los libros mutantes 2010 (Madrid), in the exhibition Zines (2010, La Casa Encendida, Madrid), and has had a residence in Hangar (Barcelona), Domestic 2011 (Barcelona) and the place of events (Sala d'art jove, Barcelona). He has received several awards such as the Illustration of the Injuve in 2010.

For this Gasworks residency he will extend his my recent practice work into Roller Derby communities in Barcelona, to connect to Roller Derby communities in London as a way to understand practices of community, campaigning and support within the sport. Roller Derby is a marginal sport, which has undergone an evolution from sports entertainment (where the theatrical elements overshadow the athleticism) to a woman-organized amateur contact sport.
