Linenhall International Artist Residency 2022

Eligibility:

The Linenhall International Artist Residency will support an artist in the creation of new work and/or the development of their artistic practice. The aim of the Linenhall International Artist Residency is to invite an artist not living in Ireland to experience life and culture in the West of Ireland. The Linenhall will facilitate events for the visiting artist and local artists and communities to meet and engage with one another. We see this as an opportunity for engagement across a broad context – to share ideas, to understand different approaches to and perspectives on their art form, to liaise with others and gain a broad range of experiences that will benefit their artistic practice. We hope the visiting artist will complete the residency with new experiences, ideas and inspirations based on their time in Mayo and will have made lasting connections to the artist community in Mayo.

The residency will take place in Autumn 2022 over eight weeks, with both an on-site and off-site element. The initial two weeks of the residency will be Preparation Weeks when the artist will be paid a fee for research and development of a residency plan before traveling to Castlebar. The artist will then have full on-site access to The Linenhall artist studio and accommodation for six weeks from Tuesday 20th September to 30th October.

During the residency artists will be expected to have a clear plan to develop new work or relevant research. Resident artists are expected to work, research or create from the studio space or offsite for at least 20 hours a week. We hope the resident artist will be willing to hold open studio hours or be available for some other form of engagement with the community for a minimum of a half day per week. This engagement could be an open invitation to the community as a whole, or be an invitation to local artists, or other formal or informal groups within our community. Public engagement could take the form of artist talks, workshops, demonstrations, skills sharing, visiting with community groups or other events.

As we can only offer one residency to one international artist in 2022, we need to select very carefully. We have decided to limit the opportunity to highly experienced artists who will be able to share their knowledge with local artists and the community.

Who can apply?

  • Highly experienced professional visual artists aged over 18
  • Artists who can clearly indicate why they want to come for a residency in Ireland
  • Artists who want to build working relationships or lasting connections in Ireland
  • Artists working in any medium including but not limited to: sculpture; photography; painting; installation; socially engaged practice; digital media, video.
  • Artists working individually or as the lead artist with a collaborator (application will be assessed for the lead artist only)

Space Waste Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

Eligibility:

A one-month sculpture residency at Greywood Arts in partnership with the National Space Centre and supported by Cork County Council. 

We are seeking expressions of interest from artists with a sculpture, three-dimensional or multi-disciplinary practice who are interested in examining questions arising around the waste produced by the acceleration of technology. It is an opportunity for an artist to explore the impact of human interactions with space and how we could move forward into the future. What are the implications of sending satellites and other hardware into space? Whose responsibility is it to regulate this and to manage space debris? 

The residency is an exciting invitation for an artist to reimagine and re-purpose technological space components that cannot be recycled. The artist will collect materials from the National Space Centre and observe the workings of a busy ground station before immersing themselves in the creative environment at Greywood. The project concludes with an exhibition and discussion at the National Space Centre in early December to showcase the work created during the residency and kick of the NSC’s 10th birthday celebrations. 

The National Space Centre is set to share space communications components including circuit boards, assemblies and data subframes with the artist, as well as preserved panels from their recently dismantled 11-metre EU-5B4 dish.

“This is a pivotal time in space exploration,” explained NSC CEO Rory Fitzpatrick. “We’re looking at manned Martian exploration in the near future, while Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson have launched space tourism as a viable industry. At the same time, there are more than 125 million pieces of space garbage orbiting our planet. It’s an ideal moment to examine questions around our responsibility to live sustainably not only on Earth, but beyond it.”
