Unearthing the Archive

Eligibility:

In a short amount of time, the Internet and digital technologies have dramatically changed the way we live our lives, and we are beginning to register and quantify how our daily contact with the digital world has altered the archive. How is technology being mobilized today to preserve and present archive and history? This residency invites participants to experience ANIMA Casa Rural through the lens of the archive, and consider how can the historical archive be used to find a way forward and makes sense of today.

Throughout the residency we will visit The National Archives of Mexico, Archivo de Instrumentos Públicos, Archivo del Arzobispado de Guadalajara, Archivo General de Notarías del Estado de Jalisco, and various archives in the surrounding area. Studio visits with archivists and local artists, will give participants the opportunity to explore these archives and further their own research. This residency will develop terms for working in the archive, and explore examples from contemporary practices that we can deployed when engaging with archival materials. Workshops on the farm will consider different ways of digitizing the archive, as well as explore experimental ways that the archive can be used in your artistic practice like digital editing, green screen, performance and installation. Participants are encourage to apply to this residency with a particular theme or focus they wish to research in the archives.

Type:

Country:

Eligibility:

Rethinking The Table is a two week residency program that looks into re conceptualize the communal dining table. Challenging both the physical parameters of the table and the symbolic layers of meaning manifest in communal eating. The residency utilized a series of workshops, excursions, group discussions, interventions & rituals, as well as each participant’s personal creative practices to build collectively tow dinners as exhibition with local guests.

We conceive of the table and the act of eating together as an entry point into a myriad of politically and socially charged conversations. We sought to use this simple act as a lens through which we can examine, research, deconstruct and ultimately rethink our relationship to food, eating and the each other.

Barro Tonalteca

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

During this residency we will find passion and dedication for two prehispanic, Mexican clay making traditions from Tonala Jalisco. These techniques  have been part of the Jimon family for six generations. Their artisanal lifestyle has taken them around the world sharing their knowledge as well as the history, culture and talent of their hometown.
“Barro bruñido” (Rub Clay) technique comes from the rubbing a pyrite stone on the shaped and painted pieces of clay, and as the last step they are burned in a traditional open sky tonaltecan style wood kiln.

“Barro bandera” (Flag Clay) derives this name from the colors of green, white and red (colors of the Mexican flag) and isan almost forgotten technique,  thus making the Jimon family more eggar to share it with the world.
With pleasure and honour the Jimon family will share their ancestral knowledge at Anima Casa Rural to all artists interested in this residency.
