The Sense of Place -Online Artist Residency

The Sense of Place is the theme for an international online artist residency at i.e. Art Projects Online Art Foundation.

We invite participants to consider the identities of “places,” the ones we walk over and through and live in. Some of these places are our homes, or locations where we have had formative experiences that are significant only to us. As the philosopher Edward Casey wrote in the foreword to his book The Fate of Place:

“To exist in any way,” “is to be somewhere. Place is as requisite as the air we breathe, the ground on which we stand, the bodies we have…We are surrounded by places. We walk over and through them. We live in places, relate to others in them, die in them.”[1]

This phrase expresses concisely the fundamental significance of place and the fact that it is through places that we know much of the world. In general, sense of place describes our relationship with places, expressed in different dimensions of human life: emotions, biographies, imagination, stories, and personal experiences (Basso, 1996).[2] In environmental psychology, sense of place—how we perceive a place— includes place attachment and place meaning (Kudryavtsev, Stedman and Krasny, 2012).[3] Place attachment reflects a bond between people and places, and place meaning reflects symbolic meanings people ascribe to places. In short, “sense of place is the lens through which people experience and make meaning of their experiences in and with place” (Adams, 2013)[4]. Sense of place varies among people, in history, and over the course of one’s lifetime.

In other words, “a sense of place” advocates the need to bring ideas of place and into the foreground of thinking and creating. 

This virtual artist residency is an effort for visual artists with different culture and background to understand, experience and produce art in this provided virtual place.

Participants should try to produce works that relate to the notion of “place” as the entry point for artists to create their own, free association response, creative reaction.

The process and outcomes of this project will culminate in an online group exhibition at the end of the artist residency. As a community, we value communication, co-creation, accountability, experimentation, and safe space to make art. Artists and audiences may not be together physically but viewing of the process of production and the outcome of this program in a virtual exhibition can provide a common experience to gain an understanding of the community and humanity during this provided place of activities.

Duration:

Duration of this online artist residency is limited to one month. The residency will start from 15th March 2023 to 14th April 2023.

Participants are expected to join the regular meetings online to discuss their work and progress with the organizers and other invited artists and critics during the residency.
