The Enchanted Garden 2022

City:

Eligibility:

During the summer months of 2022 Tone Aanderaa & Ignace Clarysse are organizing the international art exhibition 'The Enchanted Garden' for the ninth time in a unique landscape, nature garden, full of water and surprises. It is situated in Jodoigne (Belgium), halfway between Brussels and Liège, on the bicycle path 'RAVEL' between Tienen and Namur.

During the preparation phase, we chose 'Light, Transparency, Reflection, Colour... Glass' as the working theme.

We invite artists to propose one of their artworks as the 'Centrepiece' of the exhibition (using the concept of an ‘Open Call’). It will be the main artwork presented on all our websites, publications, marketing, mailings, press releases and, of course, during the exhibition itself. It will put the artist and his artworks in the spotlight throughout the whole season.

 

Your compensation:

Focus point on all our websites : ‘www.the-enchanted-garden.info’ , ‘www.le-jardin-enchante.info’ and ‘www.de-betoverende-tuin.info’ the corresponding Facebook and Google-pages. On peak days, our websites receive up to five thousand visitors a day.

You will be mentioned on a hundred external websites talking about events, art, news, etc. announcing the exhibition, such as Evensi, QueFaire, UitInVlaaanderen, DagjeWeg, ...

The press releases mention the artist and if possible, include a photo of the artwork. At least three press releases per season are sent to a thousand selected journalists in Belgium and abroad.

E-mails sent to interested persons, visitors, buyers mention the artist and if possible, include a photo of the artwork. At least three mailing campaigns are organised each season to approximately fifty thousand interested people.

The 'Centrepiece' is placed at the central place of the exhibition.

Due to the high public interest in your 'Centrepiece' and your other works, you can anticipate positive results from this exhibition.

The promotion of your 'Centrepiece' depends of course on the advertising possibilities of your work and how we can present it during the exhibition.

 

Our demands concerning the 'Centrepiece':

The piece represents the work theme 'Light, Transparency, Reflection, Colour ... Glass' into a work of art. The exhibition theme will be influenced by the choice of the 'Centrepiece'.

It combines various materials, preferably also glass. It is a garden sculpture, but the buyer must have the possibility to install it indoors. Artworks using other materials other than glass can also be proposed.

The dimensions of the work are not important, as long as it can be easily transported by the buyer.

Because of the significance of the 'Centrepiece' during the exhibition, even for the buyer, it is best to propose a sculpture in a higher price range.

The work should be attractive to the visitor and not provoke negative comments.

We can provide a socle.

 

You can find more information about the exhibition on our website ‘www.the-enchanted-garden.info’ or request by email (info@ignace-clarysse.com et artsanctuary@live.com) or by phone (+32 (0) 493 628 540). You can also use the above-mentioned emails to submit your proposed 'Centrepiece' and/or other artworks.

 

We look forward to receiving your proposal by Monday 03 January 2022 (or later if you want to propose for the 2023 exhibition :-))

 

Kind regards and see you soon,

 

Tone Aanderaa & Ignace Clarysse

City:

Eligibility:

Designregio Kortrijk is looking for 3 highly motivated and recently graduated designer-makers or creative artists to join in a regional residency program in Kortrijk, Belgium.
The Designers in Residence Kortrijk program is a 3-month full time working residency from October 2021 to January 2022.

Designregio Kortrijk provides for the selected Designers in Residence Kortrijk:
- accommodation
- monthly fee (400€/month)
- usage of Budalab Open Makerspace
- experts in several domains and support of Designregio Kortrijk
- one-time travel expenses

This year's theme is: The future of Urban Nature

Urban and Nature are often depicted as a dichotomy as if they are two opposites, one excluding the other.
A mid-sized city such as Kortrijk has a high percentage of open spaces in its city center.
We ask to the Designers in Residence 2021 to deepen our understanding of the relation Urban Nature in the City of Kortrijk.
Can this be interpreted as a co-existence? Can it be made operational to tackle the major challenges cities are facing? What interventions and projects can result out of this interpretation? Or is Nature in the end a man-made construct that needs to be rethought?

Zebrastraat
Zebrastraat 32/001
9000 Ghent
Belgium

Organisation: Liedts-Meesen Foundation

The professional jury is composed of:

Yves Bernard (artistic director iMAL Brussels), Edwin Carels (curator new media exhibitions), Jean-Marie Dallet (artist, research professor at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), Tom Dekyvere (artist), Nick Ervinck (artist, winner of the update_2 public award), Ralph Dum (scientific officer and senior expert of the European Commission), Karen Helmerson (program director for Electronic Media, Film & Visual Art at the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA)), Julien Maire (artist and laureate of the update_2 jury prize), Françoise Meesen (Liedts-Meesen Foundation), Alain Thibault (artistic director ELEKTRA Montreal) and Stef Van Bellingen (consultant for Zebrastraat / artistic leader VZW Warp).

Zebrastraat

During the last few years, Zebrastraat Ghent has developed into a stimulating knowledge centre with a strong interest in art. Every two years the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) is organised, a contest which tries to fill in a gap in the mainstream art world, by paying attention to the technological developments that drive our global culture.

NTAA selects and presents creations in which the culture-forming role of technology occupies a central place. Low or high tech, intuitive or experimental, the creations always draw our attention to actual innovative trends. The exhibition of achievements of the selected winners is a compass that orients you to the relevant temporal and resilient use of technology in the artistic sector.

The mission of NTAA

NTAA’s mission is to expand the scope of contemporary artistic creations and traditional media with works using contemporary and new technologies in an original and intelligent way: treatment of sounds and light, use of new media, application of innovative evolutions in communications, telecommunications and broadcasting, centered on the world of information, communication, and computers and interaction. These descriptions are in no way restrictive and should be interpreted in the broadest way possible.

General guidelines for entry in the NTAA competition

The aim of the competition is to present works in accordance with NTAA's mission. The jury reserves the right to exclude creations that turn out to be not realizable within the limits of the practical possibilities of the Liedts-Meesen Foundation, keeping in mind that the works will be displayed during the exhibition. The basic equipment is available and at the disposal of the selected artists; specific and special equipment must be provided for and lent by the artists for the duration of the exhibition.

This international competition is open to all age groups and to all nationalities. Artists can present their candidacy for one art work less than two years old at the time of its submission, but which may already have been exhibited. English is the working language.

There is no artist fee. Costs regarding transport, accommodation and installation will be reimbursed by the organisation.

The 20 projects selected by the jury will be rendered public at the website in October 2021.

Prizes Details: 

There will be a jury prize and a public prize. In both cases a cash award of 5,000 euro will be allocated to a work and to its creator. Moreover, the jury reserves the right to award an honorable mention to an artist. The Liedts-Meesen Foundation and the jury reserve the right to not award the prize and to transfer it to the next exhibition. The winners will be announced at the final day of the exhibition.

Deadline:
