Alana Iturralde (Puerto Rico) will undertake a residency for Caribbean artists at Gasworks (30 September – 15 December) made possible through a new partnership with Caribbean Art Initiative.

Alana works with textiles, ceramics, photography and video to explore the poetics of craft and its relationship with cultural identity. She is interested in the process of manual labour as an agent linked to body awareness, meditation and political emancipation. 

During her residency at Gasworks Alana is planning to research on the rituals performed by the 1920s Kibbo Kift youth movement on English landmarks, as well as their use and creation of symbols and motifs.
