OPEN CALL: Velkommen til Balestrand!

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 12/08/2016 - 18:45

Søknadsfrist er 19.desember 2016.
Kunstbygda Balestrand AS gler seg over å kunne invitere til
Artist in Residence 2017, i perioden 01.-31.07.2017 i minst tre veker.

Historisk er Balestrand uløyseleg knytt til kunsten. Frå 1820 og utover hundreåret etablerte det seg eit rikt kunstnarliv av besøkande som let seg inspirere av den dramatiske naturen og det stadig skiftande lyset. I dag bur og arbeider eit titalls aktive kunstnarar i kommunen, som blant anna arbeider med emalje, tekstil, keramikk, måleri, skulptur, litografi, litteratur og performance.

Til Artist in Residence 2017 inviterer vi ein kunstnar eller ein kunstnar-duo til å vere med på å vidareføre Balestrand sin tradisjon som eit rom for refleksjon, arbeidsro og presentasjon; som ein stad som inspirerer og lar seg inspirere av kunsten.

Å bli kjend med bygda og i bygda: Under opphaldet vert det verkstadbesøk til lokale kunstnarar, besøk på Norsk Reiselivsmuseum og Sognefjord Akvarium. Som eit grep for å «synleggjere ” gjestekunstnaren/kunstnarane, skal den/desse tilby ein aktivitet i bygda under opphaldet. Aktiviteten skal ha ei varigheit på minst 6t. fordelt på to dagar. Det er sett av midlar i budsjettet til dette. Aktiviteten kan vere open for alle i bygda eller rette seg mot grupper, som til dømes: barn, ungdom, flyktningar i Balestrand.

Søknadane vert vurderte av styret i Kunstbygda Balestrand og skal innehalde: CV, visuell dokumentasjon av tidlegare arbeid, motivasjonsbrev og plan for aktivitet for 6 timar.

Kunstnarane vil bu i Villa Heimdalstrand i Balestrand sentrum (sjå vedlegg med omtale og foto). Arbeidsplass vil bli på Bensen (tidlegare bensinstasjon) 100 m frå bustaden. Kvar deltakar mottek eit stipend på 8.000 NOK for perioden og reiseutgifter opp til 3000 NOK vert dekka.

Send søknad til, innan 19.desember 2016. Svar på søknadar vil bli sendt ut i slutten av desember. Prosjektet blir gjennomført med atterhald om fullfinansiering.

Med vennleg helsing Kunstbygda Balestrand AS

The Material in The Immaterial

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 12/08/2016 - 12:56

During the weekend of December 3-4th, BEK invited artists working with video to share and discuss practices. The aim of the seminar and workshop was to broaden the understanding of the video medium’s possibilities today, through a practical and theoretical exploration of technology, process and work.

The Material in The Immaterial – reflections on the nature of video medium

Since its first appearance as the Sony Portapak in 1967, video has evolved into multiple forms and aspects. Electronic technology had a short life, and other technologies took over, triggering small revolutions in video as a creative medium, as well as a general device. We can say that these small revolutions (electronic signal; digital code) changed our experience of video as ‘consumers’, but also our experience as ‘users’. Unlike other art related technologies, such as painting or even film, video has a diverse, massive usage fulfilling its first promise as an affordable, ‘everybody’s medium’. Potentially, everyone could be a ‘video maker’; the hip-hoper, the terrorist, the artist.. all of us benefiting from an established democratization of the medium, allowing it to become the ultimate expression of a ‘speakers corner’…

On another side of this perspective, art has taken the role of conceptualizing these transformations of the video technology, either by deconstructing it as a device or by using it as a medium for a poetic production.

With the seminar, we aim to broaden the understanding of the video medium possibilities today, through a practical and theoretical exploration of technology, process and work. By having a more practical and physical basis for video production, we want to get closer to a contemporary understanding of the video medium. We see that artists who use video media today often operate in this way, but the discussion of process/methodology is little in the academic community. The position behind the camera and in the editing process is often a language that is loosely and individually placed.

By arranging a practical-theoretical seminar for artists and other professionals that work with video, we want to create a forum for sharing and discussion of practices. To achieve this, we will rely on the material in an immaterial medium. We will explore the camera’s potential by deconstructing its mechanics. We will discuss imagery by viewing the data or 25 fps. We will deny video art immateriality by discussing video works in its shown form; video shown in space /gallery space.


Saturday 3rd of December 9.30-17.00:

9.30 Coffee/arrival contributors/attendants.
10.00 We start/ welcome by Anne Marthe Dyvi with a short introduction to the seminar, our field of interest/research and our guests.
