PUBLIC POOL #5
Deadline : 15th JULY 2018)
Open call to curators, artists, art critics, academics, art historians, architects, designers, scenographers, dancers, philosophers, musicians…
Antikythera ephebe, Mahdia Aphrodite, Riace bronzes, Lošinj Apoxyomenos : the many statues yielded up from shipwrecks substantiate that artworks move since Antiquity.
As regards the artists, curators or critics, the favoured type of displacement is the residence : during a short or long time, a new studio, a new landscape, a new scene can be experienced. The distance taken with the initial context reorganises the creative process and allows the insularity of an heterotopia as much as the friction of vicinities.
The supposed benefit of these new horizons, alterity and strangeness lies in the enrichment of the references and frames of the work of creation. Producing in another way is the goal of the artist residence.
The exile of other workers and of political refugees invites to (re)consider the notion of border in a radical way, and to elaborate an active reflection on the crossing of boundaries and of dividing lines between art and life, spaces, mediums, peoples and individuals : this 5th edition of PUBLIC POOL tends to follow these routes.
Proposed by Jean-Christophe Arcos, Madeleine Filippi, Marie Gayet.
