the azorean spectrum range aims to extend the interpretation of territory by decentralizing the artistic action. stockholm-based textile designer akane moriyama reimagines the central courtyard of the arquipélago – contemporary art center — by reinterpreting its role from courtyard into that of a private urban space, the figurative void serves both as an entrance point of the museum and also as an intersection between the different functions of the arquipélago itself: a museum, a black box, and a workshops for artists.

akane moriyama‘s azorean spectrum range utilizes textiles to manipulate the context of the space with subtle elements such as shadows, color, and textures. the work infuses the central courtyard with an intimate flair that invites the public to sit and observe, possibly reflecting on the dimensions of this particular public space. the long structure gradually transforms from one color to another, changing in appearance as visitors move across the space, creating a new sense or perception of the square’s scale.

walk&talk is an annual arts festival that stimulates creation in the specific cultural and geographic context of the azores. from visual arts to performing arts, to architecture, design, music or video, walk&talk is a platform that encourages artistic creation in permanent dialogue with the territory, culture and the azorean community. it operates in a co-production network with other programming structures, promotes an environment favorable to the exchange and co-creation of universal contents, generated from the azores to be shared with the world.
