PRAKSIS and Fotogalleriet invite international, national and local applications from interested individuals to participate in a residency led by artist Lindsay Seers (UK) between 24 March and 24 April 2017.
Seers’s project, A GLOBAL STATE OF PAREIDOLIA, references in its title the phenomenon of seeing legible objects within random visual data, and has connections with the field of neuroscience. Applications from individuals with a professional, academic or creative interest in and knowledge of neuroscience, and/or in filmmaking, vocal/sound art, and biographical narrative are particularly welcome. Seers also hopes to make contact with people with heterochromia who would be interested to participate.
The residency will form a close-knit community for discussion, learning, exchange and making. Seers will lead a series of public events exploring key themes in her practice, and the residency group will have plenty of scope to discuss and develop their own practices’ key issues, questions and ideas. The residency’s activities, approaches and day-to-day schedule will be developed collaboratively by the group from 24 March 2017 onward.
This residency offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. The residency community will come together regularly at the residency studio space, and at organised events and meals.
While the residency is free and offers accommodation and meals, PRAKSIS regrets that at this stage we cannot yet offer transport costs or a fee. However our team is happy to advise on and support applications for external grants wherever possible.
