The Brazilian organisation Silo - Arte e Latitude Rural is inviting artists, curators and scientists willing to work in Art and Science to apply for the programme ‘Resilience: artist in residence’, which will take place between between 22 August – 12 September 2021.
This year, the residency will host artists, curators and scientists interested in developing their work in a rural space in exuberant nature. The Resilience: Artist Residency will take place outside science labs and art workshops, in the Atlantic Forest domain, in the Environmental Protection Area of Brazil’s Serrinha do Alambari and on the Itatiaia National Park’s plateau, located at 2791 meters of altitude.
In this environment, artists and curators intending to do research and willing to dialogue with science and scientific methods will have the opportunity to work alongside scientists. Scientists, in turn, will be able to expand their field of vision while dealing with unconventional variables, far from the protocols of their laboratories, and to link their work to artistic production.
The artist, curator or scientist selected will receive:
- Round trip tickets from your place of origin.
- Private or shared accommodation with one person, shared studios and free food.
- A grant of R$2000 (~335 EUR).
The residency will include expeditions in the region of Serrinha do Alambari and Itatiaia’s Park, and participation in Silo-school, a space for exchange of knowledge with the local community and other interested parties.
At the end of the residency, there will be an exhibition with the research, processes and works developed. After the residency, a publication will be released with the documentation of the processes and results of the work carried out.
