Have you dreamed of working in another country?  Have you always wished you could stay and explore an area at your leisure and continue to create your art? How would living in another country inspire you? This program is designed for the professional to leisure artists to come to France to live and work in a fully equipped, significantly subsidized, ceramic studio. All arts are welcome.The studio is designed for 8 artists, from around the world, to create their work for an extended period of time.

Groups are encouraged. The ceramics studio is fully equipped with 2 high temperature electric kilns, a slab roller, wheels and tools. The space can accommodate other artists, as there is space for painting, drawing, sculpture or perhaps other accommodations in media. There is also an area for exhibition as work develops. Workshops for 5 days to 2 weeks are offered, see Events/Workshop page for the full schedule.

The program is designed to be flexible, for 1 week to 3 months, with a preference, and price-break, for a 2 and 3-month stay. While transportation via trains and buses is easily accessible, artists are required to be independent.

Modern Composition with Gavin Bryars

Country:

Check out the report on Gavin's 2018 session here.Gavin Bryars is without a doubt one of the world's most celebrated living composers. He emerged to the musical establishment in the early sixties, playing bass with improvisers Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley - his relationship with improvisation was short lived, and by the late 60's he was working with John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and John White. His first major works - The Sinking of the Titanic (1969), originally released on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975, and Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) - were released in new versions in the 1990s, selling over a quarter of a million copies.

Opera and ballet have formed important strands in Gavin's practice - he has written four full-length operas, working with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Mainz Opera, Long Beach Opera and the Opera de Paris, alongside such renowned directors as Robert Wilson, Georges Delnon and Jean Lacorrnerie. Hi has worked with Opera North Projects and the Royal Shakespeare Company since 2006, and his collaboration with Merce Cunningham, Biped, toured worldwide with the Cunningham Company.

Elsewhere in Gavin's extensive catalogue of works can be found vocal works written for The Hilliard Ensemble, and commissions for Bournemouth Sinfonietta, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Primavera Chamber Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. His background in the visual arts has resulted in works for the opening of the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, an installation in the Chateau d'Oiron, commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture, a work for the Tate Gallery St Ives, and a project for the Valencia Architecture Biennale. This visual arts affinity has also led to highly successful collaborations with David Byrne, Bruce MacLean, Bill Culbert, Juan Munoz, Christian Boltanski, Will Alsop and others.

This course will take Gavin's work as a starting point to examine compositional forms and strategies, working closely with the group's existing practice and methods, with the aim of each student developing a finished work for performance at the end of the session. Students from all musical backgrounds are welcome, whether classically trained, improvisors, sound artists, installation artists, conceptual artists or favouring any other approach. The session will include:

Individual tuition sessions, examining and developing each student's existing work and practiceGroup sessions examining different types of musical material, including vocal music (both solo and ensemble), string music, opera, music for dance, composing in relation to music from the past, and arranging the music of othersEvening events showing Gavin's work in opera and filmDevelopment of each student's work for final performance by the group at the end of the course

The sessions will be accompanied by optional outdoors activities led by CAMP crew, including guided mountaineering, visits to local beauty points, and downtime to hang out, relax, enjoy the local food and wine, and learn informally from Gavin, the CAMP crew, and your fellow students. Following the course, further support of the work developed will come in the form of performance and releasing opportunities via Fuse Art Space and our range of in-house record labels.

32 Festival Les Instants Vidéo - November 2019

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Festival Les Instants Vidéo is an event dedicated to video art and electronic poetry with its multiple forms, monobands, installations, performances, multimedia...

In 1969, Neil Armstrong set the firstmankind foot on the moon. The same year, Nam June Paik created a bra with two tiny TV sets featuring this remarkable event.Charlotte Moorman wore it overherbare breast as she played her cello : TV Bra for Living sculptures.The event got even more remarkable. Video art created a constellation connecting erotism, technology and the cosmos. In 2019, thousands of women, men and children (thousands of Neil Armstrong) are not allowed to set foot on the ground. They are wrecked at sea aboard their miniature Apollo 11. The shrinking of the planet and humans’dreams.

There is only three ways to avoid drowning into an ocean of despair 1) a love encounter 2) to act jointly for a social revolution towards freedom 3) to take on an ongoing basis poetic and artistic actions.

In regard to points 1) and 2), it is not in the missions of Instants Vidéo. We are not matchmakers, nor a Political Bureau. We are simply a group of freedom loving people, and for this reason we throw open the doors of the festival to all the artistic works keen to make life more interesting than art.

Video art didn’t have its last word, nor shown its last image. 

Artists of the world, let’s unite our films, video installations and performances so that every human being can walk around the earth freely, as weightless as a cosmonaut in outer space.
