CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 01/03/2021 - 03/05/2021
    
Eli Keszler is a New York based artist, composer and percussionist. His installations, music and visual work have appeared at Lincoln Center, MIT List Center, Victoria & Albert Museum, Sculpture Center, South London Gallery, Hessel Museum, Tectonics Festival Reykjavik, MoMa PS1 and many other locations, and he has collaborated with artists such as Tony Conrad, Oren Ambarchi, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Aki Onda and Rashad Becker. His recordings, most recently the acclaimed "Last Signs of Speed", have been released on Empty Editions, Esp-Disk, Pan and REL records, and he has received commissions from the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, ICE Ensemble, Brooklyn String Orchestra and So Percussion. Eli's work is regularly featured in Frieze, The New York Times and Wire Magazine amongst other publications, and he has taught  at Brooklyn College, Columbia University, New England Conservatory, Dartmouth University, Washington University, Mass Art and UMass Boston.

The space between composition and performance has never been more blurred. Working directly with environments, their modifications, and the situations which these environments produce allows music to take open forms where spaces, both concrete and social, form experience. 

During this course, you'll work directly with the physical spaces where you are to consider ways of structuring and thinking about music, and various ways of producing. Working with site-specificity in both physical and cultural spaces, Eli will take music as a launching point for work that could take any form or medium. Work will be encouraged which takes into account nature and environments, and the way they interact with culture and technology.

Activities will include:

Exploration of compositional and performance ideas, examining texts, critical listening, and discussionExamining the role and effect of technology on musical processSite-specific work, taking advantage of your location to produce work informed by the environment

The course will focus on the development of a project into a fully formed on-site work, through a combination of discussion and presentation, working together as a group and individually.

REAKTOR Potenziale

Share

Eligibility:

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s open call is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a fortnight’s residency and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

  • Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.
  • A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.
  • Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.
  • Site specificity | A dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture and/or content).
  • Feasibility | Budget, public safety
