TAKING TIME / PRENDENDO TEMPO INDIVIDUAL RESIDENCIES

Applications are open to creative practitioners such as visual artists, film makers, writers, performance artists, curators, designers, musicians, theatre-makers and researchers who work either individually or collaboratively. Individuals and groups are welcomed. Interdisciplinary applications from creatives who work across disciplines are encouraged.

Each individual residency provides uninterrupted periods of time with no expectation of a final outcome. Whether you wish simply to be up close to your practice, allow nature to suffuse your thinking and feeling, produce new work or complete a project, The Museum of Loss and Renewal will do  its utmost to ensure that you can achieve what you set out to do.

Location
The residency is located in Collemacchia, a small village within Italy’s National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, a protected area of exceptional significance and beauty. Engagement with the natural world begins on the doorstep and the stunning mountainous landscape offers an excellent environment for reflective practice. The ancient, undisturbed and extensive terrain holds a rich and complex history visible in the area’s architecture, customs, agricultural lands and forests.

The area is sparsely populated by villages that are largely trilingual Italian-French-English due to the large community of emigrants who continually move between European nations, stemming from economic migration dating from approx. 1850. The village has been home to Tracy Mackenna’s family for centuries and the curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal foster strong links with the local community which is highly supportive of the Residency Programme.Accommodation
Residents are accommodated in two comfortable houses situated a couple of minutes walk from each other. Houses have fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms, and double, twin and single bedrooms (single use bedrooms can be allocated dependent on availability). Bedlinen, towels, hairdryer, washing machine, ironing board, exercise mat etc. are provided. Central heating and internet throughout. Cleaning is included in cost.

Studio space
Located in two buildings, situated a couple of minutes walk from each other. Recently renovated and include indoor and outdoor making spaces, and desk space (in houses and studios). Internet throughout.

“It was wonderfully restorative in every sense. Such a perfect environment that you have created; the space, the library, studios, people and of course Collemacchia itself. I feel very privileged to have been there.”

MONOCHROMES

Free entry│Call for Exhibition

Photographers are invited to submit 1 up to 3 photos addressing the theme.

Group Exhibition in Rome. September 2023

-

This call aims to collect monochrome photographic images containing tonal scales of gray or other chromatisms. Beginning with the black and white photographic images, the monochrome product is always intended as an abstraction of reality and as a representation of certain levels of human perception, of the visible and not, through which we gather information on the relationship of humankind with the world.

The Call "Monochromes" also intends to recall the aesthetic-artistic trends that arose from the 50s and 60s, in which color has a primary function in conveying or reinforcing messages and meanings, aimed at arousing emotional reactions on the part of the observer.

THE FAMILY

Free entry│Call for Exhibition

Photographers are invited to submit 1 up to 3 photos addressing the theme.

Group Exhibition in Rome. July 2023

-

The Family

The collection of the photographs on display will expose the meaning of the term "Family", through stories and thoughts.

Such a broad topic, "Family", grants the photographers multiple approaches within the experiential and autobiographical sphere - which makes the diaristic component implicit - but also documentary and conceptual, as the result of a reflection on the meaning of the "Family" in the modern age.

"Family" is understood as a social nucleus made up of several individuals who live and share domestic environments, linked together by kinship and/or by an emotional relationship.

The selected photos will answer questions such as "What are families nowadays?", "How do traditions and cultures affect our way of living them, in them and with them?", "What testimonies do we have of new ways of understanding the family?" - a reference to immigrant individuals who create new social and sharing groups and the request by homosexual women and men who want the right to create their own family recognized.

History of art offers a further starting point to reflect from, and it concerns a human behavior made manifest through the pictorial genre of the portrait: to remember oneself by becoming testimony and historical root for his descendants, a behavior that is followed through photography with the exposition in the frame or the family album.
