The key objective of the competition is to place a special focus on Segovia’s city walls as living matter and a rich source of memories for Segovia in the 21st century.

Registration is free of charge on the competition’s website at  www.fromlimittoliveit.com 

On the occasion of the International Year of Light declared by UNESCO, Segovia’s City Council and IE University’s d-lab are running an international competition entitled From Limit To Live It to design a temporary artistic display on the northern section of the medieval walls surrounding the historic district of Segovia.

The overarching aim of the competition, which is open to everyone worldwide, is to explore the capacity of artistic expression to reveal and showcase the medieval walls that surround the city’s historic quarter.

From Limit To Live It is looking for a form of artistic display that will return the walls to their city and inhabitants through the use of light, which is synonymous with life and new beginnings. Re-constructing the wall to bring its presence to a fore, bringing the space it occupies to life, and building memories are just some of the possible challenges that such artistic expression is expected to meet, in order to offer a new understanding and significance of the wall by revealing aspects that have lain unnoticed by the human eye and hidden by the passage of time.

The judges’ panel will select the winners of three prizes (First, second and third) and a maximum of 10 honorary mentions. The winning entries, the entries that receive honorary mentions, and a selection of work by other participants will be on display at Segovia’s Royal Mint building after the competition has come to an end, and the idea that won first prize will be developed and displayed during the FAV (Annual Visual Festival) set to take place this summer.

All proposals will be published on the official website of the competition at www.fromlimittoliveit.com and on the website of Segovia’s City Council.

Anyone who wants to register to enter the competition can do so free of charge at the competition’s website at www.fromlimittoliveit.com, where the terms and conditions are also set out.

La Muralla de Segovia protagonista del Concurso Internacional “From Limit To Live It”

El objetivo del concurso es recuperar la muralla como memoria y materia viva de la Segovia del siglo XXI

 La inscripción es gratuita a través de la página web del concurso www.fromlimittoliveit.com 

romina1El Ayuntamiento de Segovia, en colaboración con IE University, a través de su d-lab, y en el Año Internacional de la Luz, declarado por UNESCO, ha organizado From Limit To Live It, un concurso internacional para una intervención artística temporal sobre el lienzo norte de la muralla medieval que circunscribe el casco antiguo de Segovia. El concurso ha sido presentado hoy por la profesora de Arquitectura de IE University y coordinadora del D-Lab Romina Marta Canna y la Concejala de Patrimonio Histórico y Turismo Claudia de Santos ( en la fotos, de izqda. a dcha). 

El objetivo de este concurso, abierto e internacional, es explorar la capacidad del evento artístico para revelar y recuperar el protagonismo de la muralla que contiene y marca el perímetro del casco antiguo. 

From Limit To Live It es una búsqueda por una intervención artística que devuelva el muro a su ciudad y sus habitantes a través del uso de la luz, sinónimo de vida y de nuevos comienzos. Re-construir el muro, revelar su presencia ausente, materializar su espacio y generar memoria, son algunos de los posibles objetivos depositados en la capacidad del arte para entender, resignificar y  revelar aquello que permanece desapercibido a los ojos y al recuerdo.  

El jurado seleccionará tres premios (primero, segundo y tercero) y un máximo de 10 menciones honoríficas. Los premios, las menciones honoríficas y una selección de los participantes serán exhibidos en La Real Casa de Moneda de Segovia al finalizar el concurso y la idea galardonada será desarrollada y ejecutada durante el FAV, Festival Anual Visual, que se desarrollará durante el verano de 2015. 

Todas las propuestas serán publicadas a través de la página oficial del concurso: www.fromlimittoliveit.com y a través de la página web del Ayuntamiento de Segovia y sus Concejalías. 

La inscripción es gratuita a través de la página web del concurso www.fromlimittoliveit.com donde también se pueden consultar las bases.
