New Residency: Medea Electronique Koumaria Residency
Where is it?
Selassi, Sparta in an organic olive oil farm at the foot of Mount Taigetos in Sparta.
What is it?
The artist collective Medea Electronique organizes every year, since 2009, the experimental artist residency Koumaria, which is based on improvisation and the practices of new media, taking place near the area of Sparta in Greece. Avant-garde artists from all over the world, inspired by the Greek natural landscape, create a multicultural and cross-media ‘dialogue,’ which leads to a collective presentation of an outcome.
Whats going on now?
Our target with this residency is the creation of an educational experience for the participants, inspiring and exalting their future work. Through the multicultural association a cross-cultural dialogue can create new speculations or solidify older. In the past years, friendships and concepts for new artworks were formed between the residents, resulting in their further artistic cooperation. Medea Electronique, as an original art collective, is interested in the experimentation of the residency as a means of promoting new ways to work and cooperation among people with diverse cultural backgrounds. For us this experience works as a model for future creative contacts.
New Residency: ISIS Arts studios
Where is it?
ISIS Arts studios are based on a quiet square in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, North East England.
What is it?
ISIS Arts is an artist led, visual and media arts organisation, which runs an international programme of commissions, residencies and events. ISIS Arts’ core ethos is to support artists to make critically engaged visual and media art, which is locally significant and internationally relevant, and to share the learning and relationships we gain. ISIS is committed to showing work within the public realm, engaging as wide an audience as possible in dialogue with artists and artworks, making our projects accessible to a diverse public.
Whats going on now?
Currently ISIS Arts is developing a series of Nomadic Villages with partners from Austria, Bulgaria and Macedonia for artists who consider themselves to be without borders. The villages will support collaborative practice and exchange through engagement with rural communities who are usually excluded from creative discourse. The villages will be self-directed residencies during which artists will create visual artworks of social relevance influenced by their surroundings.
