The residency aims to create spaces of encounter between archaeological landscapes and contemporary art practices, generating an archeology of mediterranean culture having the Park of Scolacium as the epicentre of new cartographies and explorations.
Archaeological sites are places where materiality and integrity still play a fundamental role. Archaeological ruins, especially in southern Italy, are slowly loosing appeal and that is why this residency, exploring ways of encounter between the fluidity and fragmentary of the digital and the “untouchable” and “sacred” ruins, wishes to disclose new ways of looking at archaeology. The artists are encouraged to work on their research and practice in a new and suggestive context without an imposed structure of a standard residency program.
The residency provides space and time for focused researches and art practices in the archaeological park of Scolacium (Roccelletta di Borgia, IT). Artists are hosted at walking distance from the archaeological park and provided of studio spaces, video editing studio and free access to the archaeological site.
DETAILS ON HOW TO APPLY TO THE 2021 RESIDENCY PROGRAMME WILL BE PUBLISHED SOON.
