Performing Landscapes 2024 Research Residency (Belgium, Netherlands)

A simple map of the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine region.

Greylight Projects (Heerlen, Netherlands) and Art Au Centre (Liège, Belgium) are calling for two residencies of three months (May–July 2024) in the context of the cross-border performance festival ‘Performing Landscapes’ that will occur on 7 September in Liège.

The residency takes place in the framework of the performance art festival ‘Performing landscapes 2024’ initiated by Very Contemporary, a network between different art spaces and museums in the border region of the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine.

The residency invites artists to reflect on the particularities of the Euregio-Meuse-Rhine region and its landscapes, exploring new perspectives on the particular urban and rural territories in the border triangle. Responding to the various landscapes, their borders, their history and their possible futures.

The project may address or reflect themes that will revolve around ways of questioning the cross border territory: sustainability and resources (natural, human, economical, etc); post-industrialism landscapes (architecture, ecology, transition, social, etc.); multicultural and historical heritage (language, knowledge, micro histories, etc); geopolitics topics link to the territory (communications, routes and migration); place of water in the landscape.

The focus of the residency is on research and developing a new work in this context. The artist is invited to give a public presentation of their practice in Greylight Projects in the beginning of the residency as an introduction to the interested members of the cultural field. The residency period will take place at Greylight Projects in Heerlen, with a final public presentation at Greylight Projects as well as in Liège as part of the programme of the performance festival that will occur on 7 September 2024. The artist(s) will be guided by the teams of both Greylight Projects and Art au Centre throughout the residency.

The artist must be on site at least 3 days per week or equivalent during the 3 months and be available on 7 September for the Festival presentation.

The organisers will provide studio space, accommodation, a fee of 1,000 EUR and up to 500 EUR for production costs (depending on the needs of the project).
