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.

Permaculture in the Classroom

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

This residency is designed for art educators interested in incorporating the ideas and ethics of permaculture into their classrooms. Within the setting of an active permaculture farm, participants will collaborate to develop a pedagogy rooted in the three tenets of permaculture: care of the earth, care of the people, and return of surpluses to the earth and people. Hands on workshops will introduce participants to the practical aspects of permaculture, which they will then use to develop cross-curricular lessons that are based on the practice of permaculture. Each participant will leave the residency with the resources and confidence to re-imagine permaculture within a diverse range of educational environments.

Inventory

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

A never ending story of what we have lost with the pasage of time (life)

Identity and exploration of the artists

Document and curate the artist’s lifeline  and creation all the while asking the question: What have you lost?

Since I was little I have wondered where do things go and where are we going?

As individuals and as society we organize and try to keep and collect as much as we can, but there are many times that we lose track. “We lose things, thoughts, people”

We know all those things we just need to dig to ourselves (in this case the artist self ) and expose.

And inventory can trace a lifeline too, The past, the present and the future. An artist can explore their past or just try to explain their future.

The Land is a Library

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The land and its animal inhabitants have always been integral to the creation of books: parchment produced from the skin of calves, tree pulp for paper, vegetable charcoal into ink... If one were to make books localized materially and conceptually around Anima Casa, what might that look like? How can a kiln, burning donkey shit, produce a book? Are the black embers floating through the sunset from nearby burning sugar kane just a series of punctuation marks waiting to find their pages? Are the fish sucking up algae in the swimming pool acting as

editors of some acquatome? How does environment allow us to inhabit the space between languages? What is learned from skinning rabbits? What space is made by pulling air, sand, and water into the pages of a book? What does it mean to create books that blur and bridge geographies; books that promise an undoing of languages; books that offer an experience? These and many other questions will shape the residency until we prove The Land is a Library.

Queer Environmental Worlds 2

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Future worlds. Alternate realities. Parallel universes. Far off planets. These are just some of the places we may discover in Queer Environmental Futures, which is the theme for this residency.

Queering environmental futures will bust down the divisions between utopia and dystopia. We already occupy liminal bodies, have activist histories, have lived with and through toxicity. What can queering the future bring to the current environmental crises? If we dismantle the colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and hetero and cis normativity that have brought us to this environmentally precipitous moment, what can we create in their place? 

Seeking artists and collaborators working in any medium, Queer Environmental Futures will turn to tropes of science fiction where we can render the familiar unfamiliar and see it anew. We imagine environmentalist futures fuelled by collective spirits of radical ethical experimentalism.
