FOLLOW YOUR CREATIVE AMBITIONS

TRACTOR
Do you need time and/or a space to focus on a particular piece of work?
Are you looking for assistance on a project?
Would you like to spend time with a community of creative individuals?

Within the framework of TRACTOR International Artist in Residency you’ll be exposed to a unique opportunity to explore and expand your artistic ambitions. “Test” your ideas within a larger frame than your own studio. This self directed creative programme offers you the luxury of time, space and freedom to perform new body of work, research innovative ideas or just experiment with different techniques or modes of production. You can use the opportunity to interact with other artists, or use the time as a chance to re-turn to yourself and the nature – you choose.

TRACTOR is open to both individuals and groups from all creative (as well as art-theoretical) spheres.

WHY TRACTOR:

  • + work without distractions
  • + conducive & flexible indoor/outdoor places for art-making
  • + theoretical and intellectual growth through interaction with a peer group
  • + an opportunity to immerse yourself in Eastern European arts scene
  • + meet the regional artists community
  • + conduct workshops, have an artist talk or show your work at the end of the residency

GOALS & MISSION

– to offer what is necessary to ensure work without distractions
– to enable the transfer of knowledge between different creative disciplines
– to provide artists with time, supportive environment and professional assistance
– to establish an exciting platform where artists (and the public) can engage in critical discourses
SET-UP

This programme is for all those creative minds who either wish to change their environment for a couple of weeks and find inspiration in a new surrounding or simple need undisturbed time to develop or finish up a body of work.

As a TRACTOR guest you will have uninterrupted, self-directed work time. We will not pressure you to deliver finished work; you can focus solely on research and development of ideas. We do however expect the guest artist to make productive use of their time whilst at D’CLINIC and pro-actively engage with other studio holders, staff and the wider environment.

The studio and it’s surrounding is suitable for all kinds of initiatives; we can provide you a wide range of equipment and/or materials depending on the specific needs and complexity of the planned work. Each proposed project is discussed and agreed individually.

DETAILED OVERVIEW OF OUR FACILITIES & EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE >>>

 

Generally periods of one or two months are offered. In particular cases a longer or shorter period is negotiable; however the residency should not be longer than 6 months and shorter than 2 weeks.

OUTCOME

TRACTOR provides professional development opportunities for artists and does not involve gallery-based or other set outcomes or objectives. However, each residency at D’CLINIC starts with an “meet the new artists” event, where you’ll be asked to share your artistic experiences with the peer group and other interested crowd.

h

OPTIONAL
There is also a possibility to show your work within a project-exhibition at the end of the residency; or to present your work threw open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops, lectures…

But, if you simply want to focus on your work that is absolutely acceptable as well.
