NOTE : The Artist in residence program will be postponed from June 2020 to June 2021 due to Covid-19.
Announcing selected artist :
We are excited to welcome Aaron Claringbold to Bodø in June 2021 as he develops an exiting body of work during the “Camera as Political Apparatus” workshop. He will be working with us to produce a book dummy during his time at NOUA.
Aaron is an Australian Photographer who’s practice focuses on land, land use, ecology and human presence within modern day Australia. In particular, he looks to explore the ways in which human impact and ideologies have shaped conceptions of ‘the bush’ and nature since colonisation, feeding nationalistic identities around place. He collaborates with fellow artist Rebecca McCauley.
The residency is a pilot project, and had an open call for application to all artists working with camera based art winter 2020.
The aim of the residency is to welcome a talented artist to participate in the workshop with their project, and receive an additional stay to continue their work on the project with the access to a variety of production facilities and possibilities of one-to-one practical tutorials.
The chosen artist get all costs covered (workshop, travel, accommodation, food, materials).
Facilities available on site include a digital booth with editing/post production facilities, digital photographic printing, analogue darkroom, paper and negative scanning, small photo studio, book binding workshop.
The selected artist also receives materials of own choice up to 300 EUR (photo paper, materials for photobook dummy etc).
The AiR is kindly funded by Nordland County Council.
