Brief description of residency program

Element.a Residence is a non-profit association which proposes to five artists of all disciplines, working together for six weeks, to the creation of a collective work.Through this process, we seek to highlight the link between the artists in residence, including their influences, and find what unites them in creation.

We wish to open up dialogue to all forms of artistic expressions and to highlight their complicity and their osmosis. Influenced by the experiences of John Cage and Rauschenberg who unveiled the possible bridges between the arts, we open ourselves to transversality.

Animated by this concern for crossing borders and mixing universes, each residence will be in a new territory adding a unique moment to this Moment of creation.

Thus we go beyond the existing division of art, to give shape to "another choice" situated beyond these disciplines.
