Open Call for 2022 / Artist Residency Program AADK Spain

Dear friends,

In the midst of a global scenario that is still looking for balance, we are filled with enthusiasm for the possibility of releasing this new Open Call. At AADK Spain, we continue working to facilitate spaces for creation and bring our resources closer to those who need time for reflection and experimentation within their artistic practice.
Today, our doors remain open, and we feel strangely and strongly equipped with the experience gained during these odd times.

We believe that all we have experienced during the periods of confinement and social distancing has deeply impacted our idea of ​​what is essential and what is relevant. Without a doubt, these times have also affected our sensory perception: in a matter of a few months, we became aware of the relevance of some of our most forgotten senses. The loss of smell became an indicator of our state of health, the need for bodily contact reminded us about the fragility of our emotional ties.

Touching is essential to our lives — it is estimated that within a day we touch around 150 objects and surfaces. Our contact with other human bodies is significantly less frequent than that, but nevertheless essential for our well-being.
Today, touching is a gesture that invites us to redefine: how do we touch our planet?, how do we connect with other living beings and with our peers?
We invite you to think about touch in all its complexity, reflecting, for example, on what we call textures – in image or sound – as a type of information that comes from a tactile experience.
We consider that, already immersed in this “new normality”, it is essential to reflect on the limitations that have been imposed on touch as well as on our continuous turn towards a virtual world.
Re-discovering our tactile relationship with the world and reactivating our haptic perception – that set of non-visual sensations that an individual experiences to receive information – are the proposals of this call.

We look forward to your applications!
The AADK Spain team

 

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, priority (not exclusive) will be given proposals that work with the topic of the haptic/tactile through any creative discipline (dance, performance, visual arts, work with new media or any other duly justified approach). Both individual and collective proposals are eligible.

AADK Spain understands residency programs as contextualized spaces where location models the practices and modifies both its participants and the local communities. Thus, our Artistic Residency is an interdisciplinary and socially committed program that offers its attendants a space for analysis and production. It aims to facilitate research in rural environments, highlighting the value of local knowledge as a means to re-think how these locations can position themselves in an era of massive urbanization through a social, historical and geographical perspective.

Throughout their stay, participants create a temporary community that shares experiences and processes, fostering debate and a transversal perspective of their projects. AADK Spain provides tutelage and curatorial follow-up as well as assistance in production and management of projects and Open Studios night on the last Saturday of each month. Additionally, participants are encouraged to keep in touch with us after their residency ends, so that we can promote their work in forthcoming exhibitions curated by our platform as well as in papers, conferences and/or publications.

The amount of participants varies every month, but reaches a maximum of six projects (including individual proposals or duos/collectives).

- Duration: 1-6 months with 2 months being the recommended minimum for the full development of a project. The residency period starts on the first day of the first month and ends on the 30th day of the last month.

- The artists will have access to: accommodation, work space, access to common areas and outdoor space, basic technical equipment, support in production, mentoring and curatorial support, visibility of the artist in the communication channels of AADK Spain.

- Accommodation: private room in a shared house or individual apartment.

- Studio/Workspace:
Centro Negra is the main building of AADK Spain. It serves both as working area and exhibition space. It is located on the slope of a mountain, being reachable only by foot, and stands at the foot of a Moorish castle from the twelfth century.Its architecture is an assembly of small poultry yards and ancient houses that fell into disuse at the beginning of the twentieth century. It still retains many stone walls and mountain ledges.
The current structure is made up of 6 different and interconnected spaces. Each of them is unique in its size and morphology, constituting a set of great versatility and capable of adapting to multiple purposes. Given the morphology of the building, closedworkspaces are not possible. We invite you to take on this challenge as an opportunity to be in touch with the creative processes of other participants.

Prize summary: 
Selected artists can participate in our Artist Residency Program for a period of 1-6 months.

PLACE, PEOPLE AND TIME: drawing into being

Country:

Eligibility:

Residency dates: Mon 22 – Sun 28 June 2020.

Apply by: midnight Sunday 29 March 2020.

This group residency has been devised by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in partnership with artist and academic Danica Maier. It is offered for creative practitioners working in art, animation, architecture, communication industries, design, fashion, film, theatre, performance and for those who have a strong interest in drawing as an area of practice. Applications from other fields where drawing is used as a means to develop, document, explore, explain, interrogate and plan such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, medicine, sport and writing are welcomed.

FOCAL POINTS OF THE RESIDENCY

- Drawing
- Technologies
- Interdisciplinarity
- Co-learning
- Individual practice
- Collective platform for encounters
- Experimentation
- Transcription
- Location specific
- Site sensitive
- Natural environment of exceptional significance
- Published outcome
- Outcome presented internationally

APPROACH

The group residency will provide a partially-structured and hands-on programme to enable residents to develop their skills and understanding of drawing across a range of technologies. The residency experience is designed to stimulate new ways of thinking and experimentation through production, research, co-learning and presentation. Residents will work collectively and individually. The residency is devised around the idea of ‘people, place and time’ and the programme will be situated in and around the village of Collemacchia, Molise, Italy. By walking, listening, looking and making an interdisciplinary group of residents will activate drawing, a sophisticated means of thinking and communicating, to investigate a site. The location contains a cluster of contemporary villages, residing amidst Samnite and Roman settlements, all accessible by foot. 

In addition to each resident’s individual work, there will be a final outcome in the form of a collective publication that will be published by The Museum of Loss and Renewal and presented at international events.

The aim of this residency is to affirm the value of drawing and enable the visualisation and development of perceptions and ideas in a supportive and stimulating environment in which to develop your skills and knowledge of drawing. Drawing remains a core activity in the work of creative practitioners, as an exploratory tool that guides visual discovery. You will explore various approaches to drawing, from historical to contemporary, analogue to digital. The necessity to understand the world through visual means is increasingly acute, and images surpass the boundaries of language and enhance communications in an increasingly globalised world. Alongside individual practice, the residency will have a focus on co-learning and knowledge exchange, creating opportunitiesto learn from each other. A series of group sessions supported by specific learning models will enable you, without hierarchies, to explore your own practice and the assertion that drawing underpins systems and principles of visual language. ‘Visual Dialogue’, ‘Slow Looking’ and ‘Listening Environment’ will focus on attention to detail. An underlying theme of ‘Micro-Macro’ will connect the group to the residency location and to the wider world, in consideration of what one brings from a place and what is subsequently left in a place. Value will be given to the individual knowledge and experience of each resident, exploring the act of drawing as a fundamental means to analyse, document, record and translate the worlds we inhabit. The Residency Programme will be facilitated by Danica Maier (artist and academic) and Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen (artists, educators and curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal; residents of Collemacchia) who will provide practical and theoretical mentoring. The residency will have an offline engagement with international relevant experts and like-minded initiatives that will provide bespoke content, expanding the residency in time and space. 

By presenting and discussing key subjects such as experimentation (focused and embracing possibilities of failure), analogue-digital relationships, methods and approaches for investigating site, and modes of public presentation, we aim to facilitate an ongoing creative dialogue between making and being whilst immersed in the stunning environment of Collemacchia’s mountain landscape itself.

Opportunities for participants to share work in progress will happen throughout the residency, enabling conversations and peer support. Surrounding this loose structure, there will be time to develop your own work and to experience the local environment.

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 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.

FACILITIES

Live/work accommodation includes two fully furnished houses consisting of multiple bedrooms, desk space, studio spaces, central heating and internet.

FACILITATORS

The residency will be lead by Danica Maier and Tracy Mackenna & Edwin Janssen.

Danica Maier is an American artist and Associate Professor in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University (UK). Her research interests are in the un-repeating-repeat and the glitch and line, using subtle slippages and moments of detail to transgress propriety. Her work takes the form of drawing, installation, sound, music and 3D assemblages. Exploring dualities of material and site she explores ideas of expectations, traditional values and labour. Her publication Grafting Propriety: From Stitch to the Drawn Line was published by Black Dog Publishing Ltd (2016). She co-leads the No Telos research project which seeks to explore the journey of artistic process rather than that of outcome. Experience includes founder and coordinator of the artist residency programme Summer Lodge; workshop coordinator and tutor at London Printworks Trust and studio assistant at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia.

Tracy Mackenna (Prof Emerita; SCO-IT) & Edwin Janssen (Dr; NL) are the founders and co-curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal. Their collaborative art practice is a creative and discursive site where production, presentation, exchange, co-learning and research meet. Drawing is a core component of their artistic practice in the form of artworks, communication modes, and explored in book and journal chapters. The Museum of Loss and Renewal’s key areas of focus are social relationships, the way places are inhabited and how personal objects reflect who we are. Tracy & Edwin work with international partners to devise and present multifaceted exhibition projects that address issues of societal concern such as well-being, aging, end of life and sustainability. Tracy and Edwin are highly experienced, award winning educators who have devised and lead multiple group learning projects situated within the international museum and gallery sector, and higher education.

RESIDENCY FEE

The Residency Programme is operated on a non- commercial cost covering basis, and is financially supported by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in order to keep fees low. The residency fee is €930 (Euro), to be paid by the artist. This fee includes accommodation in a variety of spacious rooms with full board (3 meals each day).
