Archisle International Photographer in Residence Programme

Description 

Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme, hosted by the Société Jersiaise Photographic Archive, in the British Channel Island of Jersey promotes contemporary photography through an ongoing programme of exhibitions, education and commissions. The Archisle project connects photographic archives, contemporary practice and experiences of island cultures and geographies through the development of a space for creative discourse between Jersey and international practitioners.

A key focus of the Archisle project is to engage the residency programme with Jersey culture and community through audience and participatory involvement. In addition to the production and solo exhibition of new work responding to the cultural context of the island of Jersey, the resident will be contracted to teach photography one day per week (or equivalent) over the six month duration of the project. This teaching will be delivered in a workshop format to a range of educational and community groups.

Outcome 

Solo exhibition

Studio Information 

Studio with access to inkjet printing and office facilities

Location 

Islands, both real and fictional, have inspired artists and writers since antiquity. But islands can be sites of paradox: prison or paradise, exiled to or exiled from. [1] The physical and cultural borders of islands define and challenge the lifestyles of their inhabitants and shape insular and external perceptions about them. Small islands have limited natural resources and their economies can be based on a limited range of activities. [2] Island artists may find inspiration in their distinctive settings but must respond to challenges of isolation and remoteness from artistic movements and trends breaking in ‘mainland’ urban centres.
