ADORNMENT AND GENDER: ENGAGING CONVERSATION

PRAKSIS’s 9th residency is developed with artist, writer and curator Benjamin Lignel.

PRAKSIS and Norwegian Crafts are pleased to work with designer, curator, and writer, Benjamin Lignel (FR) to develop Residency No. 9, Adornment and Gender: Engaging Conversation.

This residency will research gender politics in relation to material practices of creating, putting on, customising, and mixing adornment. During the residency Benjamin Lignel will work alongside a group of locally and internationally based residents to collectively explore ways of making oral (her)stories and (hi)stories publicly available.
The residency will take place in Oslo between 23 April – 3 June 2018, with intensive collective activity taking place in two sessions (i) 23 April - 4 May and (ii) 21 May - 3 June. Selected residents have the option to stay in Oslo for the entire duration, or to commute for the two intensive sessions (further details in the open call).
Selections will be made on the basis of each individual’s potential to contribute to and benefit from residency involvement. Applications are now welcomed from local and international makers and thinkers across discipline, career stage and culture.

POTENTIAL PARTICIPANTS //
This residency is multidisciplinary: applications are welcomed from anyone with relevant experience and interests including but not exclusively: artists, curators, writers, designers, and sociologists. PRAKSIS aims to provide an environment for development and professional growth: applications are welcome across generation and experience level.
Places are available for 1 non-local resident and up to 6 locally-based residents to work alongside Benjamin Lignel.

WHAT PRAKSIS PROVIDES //
This residency offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. Local residents will continue to live at their usual address. The residency community will regularly come together at the residency studio space, and at organised events and meals.
Weekly meals will bring the residency community together for discussion, debate and friendship. On week days PRAKSIS will provide lunch at the working space. Dinners for all residents with invited guests will be held weekly.
Oslo has a vibrant and adventurous arts landscape. PRAKSIS will provide residents with information and links to the city’s cultural scene, informing them about exhibitions, talks, performances and other events. PRAKSIS seeks wherever possible to connect participants with relevant organisations and individuals in Oslo. PRAKSIS residencies aims to introduce the residency community to Oslo creatives in various spheres including among others: curators, writers, and artists.
Activities and events will be mainly held at PRAKSIS’s space in central Oslo. At the start of the residency, participants are invited to make a presentation, informally introducing themselves and their practice to the rest of the group. Other activities include residency related visits, a tour of Oslo's galleries, networking events, discussions and group critiques – some open to the public. A screening/seminar event will address issues surrounding the residency theme.
PRAKSIS offers a stipend of 3000 NOK (€310 on 10/01/18) to participants based abroad.
While the residency is free and offers accommodation and meals, PRAKSIS regrets that we cannot yet offer transport costs or fee. However our team is happy to advise on and support applications for external grants wherever possible.
