You can; within the TRACTOR residency programme, we accept both, applications from individual artists as well as artists duos and/or groups.
what else do I need to know about the TRACTOR programme?
TRACTOR is for all those creative minds who wish to change their environment for a couple of weeks and find inspiration in a new setting.
For those who are longing for disciplinary diversity in the studio, or are simply in need of 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.
The studio and its surrounding are 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.
You also have the option to choose and work with any of the local (art) institution and/or place.
If no special agreements are made the studio stays modestly arranged with basic equipment (tables, chairs, basic tools & leftover materials).
EXPECTATIONS TOWARDS THE ARTIST
Each residency at D’CLINIC starts with an art-dinner followed by a “meet the new artist” event, organised at one of our partner institutions; here artists are asked to share (have a presentation) their artistic experiences with the peer group and other interested crowd.
Generally, periods of three or four weeks are offered. In particular cases a longer or shorter period is negotiable; however, the residency should not be longer than 3 months and shorter than 1 week.
Artists who stay three or more weeks are offered the opportunity to show their work within a project-exhibition at the end of the residency.
all guest artists have the option to show/share work threw open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops, lectures… you name it. We will help you to work out and organize the event.
TRACTOR FEE FOR 2020 : 230 EURO / week
what is the application process?
Participants are selected on the basis of the quality of their previous work and the feasibility of the proposed project within the facilities and the expertise of D’CLINIC studios
