For Now that’s what I call an artist’s residency! art writer, Artforum contributor and PRAKSIS co-founder Rachel Withers challenges anyone who’d like to spend a month with PRAKSIS in Oslo, developing their art practice to send us the most ingenious, original and practical month-long work plan you can cook up. This residency is designed to support Wither’s investigation into the theory and practice of artists’ residencies.
Residency 13, Painting Project: Out looking Inwards focuses on three important dimensions of painting as medium: the painting’s materiality, its visual form, and the uncertainties and reflections that mark its making.
Taking Hold – The Double Bridge explored and questioned the ways that solidarity, competition and antagonism find physical expression in social relationships. Performance for camera was used as a means to test the unspoken rules of public bodily contact: for instance, in greetings, dancing, or contact sports.
