HOME: POETICS OF PLACE | OPEN CALL | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY

 

Entry Deadline | Dec 15TH, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | Dec 23rd, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Jan 21ST – Feb 4TH, 2023

 

Theme: Home: Poetics of Place | Curated By: Praxis Directors

 

The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace. We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams contained in our experience of home. Gaston Bachelard

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the meaning of home- be it a physical space, a sense or feeling, an idea of family or, perhaps, an exploration of the complicated relationship that many have with the concept of home.  A broad interpretation of the idea and place of home is encouraged. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

"Home"

Country:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

After twenty years serving the community on Plaza Street, Healdsburg Center for the Arts has relocated to a new home at 334 Center St. This transition inspired the show’s idea of exploring the concept of home. With this theme, we want to celebrate and reflect on change and the longing for stability.

The synonyms for home are many – dwelling, shelter, hearth. Homes may have different forms: castles, cottages, and huts. Animal’s homes such as nests, roosts, dens are also creative structures.

From homeland to hometown, to homegrown to home run, the words convey our personal stories. The  Odyssey is a historic quest to return home, and in modern times we still struggle with immigration and homelessness.

All media are welcome.

Wellbeing in relationships at home

Art has proven to be playing a significant role in promoting wellbeing. Different researches conducted by the Mental Health Foundation are clearly showing that arts in general have many positive and beneficial effects on our physical and mental health.

The creative industries were among those who were heavily affected by the pandemic and the lockdown. Тhe effects of the lockdown, physical and mental, are yet to be considered, recognised and analysed. The growing fears of unemployment, the furlough system, the loss of what we as humans consider as normal life and social distancing are just some of the few issues that have a direct or indirect impact on our wellbeing and relations at home.

We’re looking for people to submit thought-provoking work that raise awareness about the problems and the benefits related to our wellbeing.

Topics can include:

Wellbeing in relationships at home;

Positives or negatives of spending more time with our family during lockdown;

Exercise at home and exploring the “great indoors”;

Domestic violence;

Fear of isolation and social distancing.

POINT OF CONTACT:

Some words to inspire further thought:

“As I stood in contemplation of the garden of the wonders of space, I had the feeling that I was looking into the ultimate depths, the most secret regions of my own being; and I smiled, because it had never occurred to me that I could be so pure, so great, so fair. My heart burst into singing with the song of grace of the universe. All these constellations are yours, they exist in you; outside your love they have no reality. How terrible the world seems to those who do not yet know themselves. When you felt so alone and abandoned in the presence of the sea, imagine what solitude the waters must have felt in the night, or the night's own solitude in a universe without end.

And the poet continues this love duet between dreamer and the world, making mankind and the world into entangled creatures that are paradoxically united in the dialogue of their solitude.”

- An adaptation from the Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard
