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.”

Call for artists x 'Borders of Hope'

Type:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Have you ever crossed a line? It can be a physical border, a step beyond what is proper or acceptable, it can be crossing boundaries too. And if we did it for a good reason? And what if we discovered that on the other side of the border, choice, or country, there is something that would change our life forever? Even thinking about it can give us hope. 

To move, progress, migrate and cross the borders has been in human nature since ancient times. It’s enough to think about great discoveries, new picks, new planets, new inventions and much more. To move also means to be able to overcome the difficulties and step up for ourselves, without limitations of colours, religion, sexual orientation or disabilities.

Aren’t we all displaced and citizens of the world? With the current times and technology, to travel is very easy and we are all connected in a big wide world. Hope is high when thinking about the infinite possibilities in our lives: we continuously cross the borders, the boundaries and we overstep and change. This process is only natural and part of our growth and development. When we choose to move, we instantly produce a reaction and to cross the line is just the first step.

The exhibition ‘Borders of Hope’ searches for artists who look into changing the world into a better place thanks to hope and a pinch of resourcefulness that lead us to cross borders, countries, physical and mental limits, rules and mixing our traditions in order to forge a worldwide strong community.

ESC — OPEN CALL / #2033

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Dear friends, the ESC is back and in a new format! Now the open call and its following exhibition will appear only once a year. As VVOVVA evolves with each day and does its best to create better experiences, this time the selected works will be shown as a virtual exhibition.

We ask you to ‘Create art as you would do 10 years in the future.’ With the fifth wave of the ESC we dive even deeper into our technology- and virtual-driven future. Thrilled and excited, we joined forces with the digital platform dedicated to promoting critical conversations in contemporary art — DE:FORMAL. Created by Wednesday Kim & Vincent Cy Chen, DE:FORMAL features emerging artists who work with video, performance, installation, sculpture, media art… or other underrecognized forms in the conventional gallery system.

Some of the questions we ask:
What if AI is already self-aware? Will an organism that we’ve created in a lab become our friend in the end? Do we treat AI right? Will humans be ever at par with machines? Can the synergy happen and how if it will? How much more distant nature should become to us until we realize that we can’t live without it? If the current over-capitalized world not teaching us any lessons about our future, what will?

The submission period starts on September 5 and ends on February 6. The selected artists will be notified by email and published in a digital exhibition on April 20.

We are humbly waiting for your thoughts and projects about our unavoidable future. To read the full introduction and see previous exhibitions click the link below!
