NEKaTOENEa (Spain) > Research and creation residency

The residence of creation - contemporary art welcomes the artist in a studio-apartment of the renovated farm NEKaTOENEa. It is located in the heart of the Domaine d'Abbadia in Hendaye, protected natural site of the Basque Corniche and property of the Conservatoire du Littoral.

The environment of this residence offers a diversity of natural inputs (coastline, meadows, forest, orchard, built heritage...) and topics of scientific investigations (geology, fauna, flora, environment...).

This residence is dedicated to research and creation. Proposals with an art and science dimension will be preferred. 

The approach proposed by the artist, and outlined in the note of intent, must be specific to the context of the residency.
