Arts Lab 5.0: Violeta Roca, Spain - Month 3

 This month, we did very different things. Visiting the village of Cucuteni, I found the place very interesting. But I think that this one has been special because of the trip to Moldova—a super intense, nice, fun, challenging journey. I really liked going to another country, meeting so many people in colorful and rural towns. The food was amazing, and all the projects, conversations, and schools we encountered there, I take with me as an experience to remember. Even though it was very intense and tiring, sometimes not healthy, I loved the experience of the trip to Moldova; I think it was very enriching.

When we arrived, we were very tired. In the following weeks, we were working on personal projects for the exhibition, which is now in mid-December. In general, I could say that I was disappointed with the second museum, about Cucuteni.

Regarding the personal work for the exhibition, I was not able to finish it in time, and therefore, I did not feel comfortable with the work that I presented because I had wanted to do many things that, in the end, it was difficult for me to connect. Although the experiential and interactive part with the public I think has been quite good and interesting, I have been dissatisfied because only a few people have come, and not everyone has come to see my work, which I did not like at all for the place in which it was located since it was very inaccessible and congested.

This month I've surprised myself in many ways. I've learned to believe in myself more as I've driven the entire trip to Moldova on the roads. I have also created a ritual connected to the moon and the feminine cycle, made many works of art with very limited time, talking about taboo topics such as women’s cycle and women in society. I’ve worked with natural and recycled materials and have met many people. The relationship with people here is comfortable and good; we help each other. Sometimes it’s fun, other times it's interesting, and I feel nice with the other people.

Violeta Roca is from Spain, and she is participating in a six-month volunteering program within Arts Lab 5.0, a project co-funded by the European Union through the European Solidarity Corps.
