>>> NEW DATES <<<

RAMDOM ASSOCIATION is calling for research-based artists to take part in a 6-day group investigation aimed at ideas related to extreme lands and remote areas. Situated at the southern tip of east Italy on the Mediterranean, Gagliano del Capo poses as an ideal location for participants of the DEFAULT 19 Residency to contribute to an investigation of the extreme land.

The residency program asks what we can learn about being situated in a remote location like Gagliano del Capo. What can it teach us about the contemporary global condition, including sociological, anthropological, political or scientific positions? Can we assign a psychological profile to someone who seeks the end or the extreme? Artistic research and resulting works can bring forward proposed impossibilities and new imaginaries shaped by the characteristics of the extreme land. Approaching “extremity” as a state of mind allows for a confrontation with a contemporary world where national identities are fluid and boundaries are no longer static. The finis terrae may have captured the imagination of dreamers and adventurers, but in what ways can it also serve as a call to action for urgent realities and a methodology to be implemented elsewhere?

During working days participants will individually and collectively develop their research approach in workshops and seminar sessions. They will expand their network and exchange ideas with the support of the programme curators, external guests, and lecturers.

Conceived to encourage the research as a separate moment from the production, DEFAULT 19, will function as a platform that aims at re-negotiate the notion of time by nurturing a radically non-productive oriented format. During the six-days of residency, participants are called to be individually and collectively engaged with the landscape in its broader geographical and anthropological extent. The residency will serve as a laboratory and as an experience to nurture new forms of thoughts and approaches to the topic of the extreme lands.

The residency will be finalized afterword by producing a publication edited by Ramdom and release by the end of the year. All participants will contribute to the publication with a text.

The call is open to all disciplines: artists, curators, and researchers; or coming from other disciplines: writers, anthropologists, linguists, architects, urbanists, geographers and, professionals from scientific disciplines.

Works will be in English.

This is an international call open to any artist of any nationality and at least 21 years of age. Application of mid-career artists is encouraged.

Accommodation will be provided by Ramdom

Participants’ travel expenses will be cover by the Institutional Partners.

Active and collaborative participation to the program is mandatory. Participants are expected to stay in Gagliano del Capo (LE) for the whole duration of the project (workshop and residency, 8th-13th October 2019)

Candidates can submit their applications from March 27th to May 31st 2019.

The selected participants will be contacted via e-mail by mid-July 2019 to confirm their participation and sign the Participation Agreement.

Pietraroia lies in the Matese mountains. It is a small village situated in a stunning mountainous setting. The locals have a strong local food tradition, plus the wine of Campania is consistently prize-winning. Archaeological sites are also nearby, as are many other villages, each with their own character. It is also home to a paleontology museum. Pietraroia is situated about two hours north of Naples, making it possible to do daytrips or overnight trips to Naples, Caserta (home of the Caserta Palace), Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, and Benevento. Summertime is the season for festivals where each village celebrates their local food traditions such as cheese or olive oil. The residency program is open but as it is located in the heart of the village in a schoolhouse provided by the municipality, artists working with community-engaged projects are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted until April 1. For details on the fee and to download the application form, please visit the website.

International and Transdisciplinary Art Residency in a cultural heritage village in Sardinia, Italy.

31st May – 24 June 2019 – IVYnode is organizing the 2nd Art Residency Program with the theme “Su Bixinau”, the neighbourhood, in Nurri, a small village in the center of Sardinia.

Thanks to the precious collaboration with Fondazione Sciola, Local Municipality of Nurri, Proloco di Nurri and Archeogeo this 2nd Art Residency will include an Exhibition in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri, a Symposium during the Festival Sant’Arte in San Sperate, and a 2nd Exhibition in San Sperate curated by Fondazione Sciola.

About
The theme of the Art Residency is ‘Su Bixinau’, Sardinian for ‘the neighbourhood’.

The character of the Residency is Transdisciplinary and it is open to artists, researchers, writers or everyone who wish to be integrated in an unique place where is still possible to appreciate authentic aspects.

The participants will live in houses in the village of Nurri, in a calm environment rich in history and beautiful landscapes. During the program the artists will have the possibility to work and exhibit in the Monastery of Santa Rosa  in Nurri, dated XVII century, a perfect surrounding for side specific work and temporary installations. The participants will have the possibility to keep in touch with locals and artisans, who still preserve an ancient knowledge of old techniques that are risking to disappear. Thanks to the professionalism of Archeogeo, the artists can visit archaeological settle, exploring the territory and connecting with the nature, which can also be inspiring for landart projects.

If your art practice embraces community interaction or collaboration in some way, if you like cultural exchange programs and discovering local traditions, if you are interrested in temporary public art or site specific installation, sustainability or other models of art as social practice, this is the residency for you.

The artists participating in the Art Residency in Nurri will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Symposium “Su Bixinau” during the Festival Sant’Arte, guests for 3 days of the Fondazione Sciola, to exhibit their work first in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri and then in San Sperate, during a 2nd exhibition curated by Fondazione Sciola.
