In collaboration with Borderland Residencies, Greylight Projects launches an open call for a three-month residency in Heerlen, the Netherlands (from 1 September - 30 November 2022). Artists based in the Netherlands and Germany are invited to apply.
Borderland Residencies is a Euregional network of art institutions and through residencies, co-productions and field trips the network aims to reposition the region within Europe.
Guided by the open-ended question ‘Where are we now?’ Greylight Projects invites artists to reflect on the relationships between art, space, time and the public. How do we experience the changing (mental) architecture we inhabit? How does the fluid self engage with spaces of everyday life? How can art reflect on spatial and temporal relations?
The residency takes place at Greylight Projects in Heerlen, the Netherlands. The artist is invited to give a presentation of their practice at the start of the residency as an introduction to the public and interested members of the cultural field.
The form of a final public presentation will be determined during the residency. The artist will be guided by the team of Greylight Projects throughout the residency.
Two artists – one from Germany and one from the Netherlands – will be selected by an international jury. Greylight Projects assigns a budget of €3000 for the whole residency, and provides a private room, a work space as well as artistic and social support to the guest artist. There is a materials budget of €1000.
