Working & Thinking... surrounded by the rural Archipelago Nature!

We dont promise you a rainbow... it just might happen. View at AARK. Weather do change all the time.

AARK - a space to think and time to develop something new!
Voluntary Open Studio and Artist Talks.
We are looking for professional contemporary artists / art professionals from all disciplines for whom nature and the surrounding seaside could be an interesting area to researh or theme to work on. We offer a space to think and time to develop a new idea – or to continue on a work in progress.
Our special area is the unique archipelago, with the National Park and biosphere area; frozen seas, light summer nights, rich bird life as well as star nights – this place has something to offer around the year: outer archipelago or the nearby wild forrest lake, seaside straight outside AARK, passing ships.
AARK can offer a quiet retreat as well a more social setting – depending on the artist’s needs and other art professionals visiting. We can organize a weekly informal meeting in the residency. Travel and working plans, questions, dinners and Sauna … or just having some coffee together.
Our location is by the ferry shore and a small boats dock so there is always some traffic and people around. But still, house and the archipelago can be very silent specially during winter months.
We encourage a dialog inside AARK, between both national and international quests and a dialog with local people and the environment. A residency period is what You make it for! Sometimes just 1 OR about 5 artists at the residency, depending on timing.
