D'CLINIC

D'CLINIC

Tractor and Mixer programmes

Description 

D'CLINIC is designed to deliver a supportive community where artists can focus on their own creative practice and/or research, share skills and knowledge, interact or collaborate in an multidisciplinary vibrant environment free from constraint, harshness or formality. The residency has both indoor and outdoor spaces for creativity. The offered working space is flexible, and generally adopted to each artist's individual requirements and needs. Each proposed project is agreed individually.


Artist in residency programs: Mixer is a cross-disciplinary collaborative “playground” / experiment where artists from diverse artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds can engage, share methodologies and inspire each other. With the task of working in pairs, artists are given the opportunity to regenerate their creative dynamism, exchange and develop new ideas, while learning valuable insights from other art forms. MiXER focuses on experimental research and discussion.
Within the framework of Tractor international artist in residency you’ll be exposed to a unique opportunity to explore, expand and / or develop your artistic ambitions. This self-directed, non-pressured, non-judgmental programme offers you the luxury of time, space and freedom to perform a new body of work, research ideas, experiment with different techniques or modes of production. Interact with other artists, or use the time as an opportunity to re-turn to yourself – you choose.

Outcome 

While MiXER is a three-week programme with a structured outcome: the residency ends with a public presentation of the completed project, an ARTIST'S BOOK is designed and published as a limited edition artifact; all but two copies of the published book remain to the participating artists.
TRACTOR programme, on the other hand, is not pressuring artists to deliver finished work. However, 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. And all guest artists have the option to show / share work through open studio events, presentations, readings, screening, workshops, lectures etc. The organisers will help you to work out and organize the event.

Technical Information 

An open network of cultural institutions & workshops provides resident artists with a wide range of equipment and/or materials they might not have at place (i.e. bronze casting tools & foundry for small-scale sculptures, wood workshop, lithograph supplies & press, dark room, screen printing equipment, all sorts of wooden frames, canvas stretchers etc). All requirements will be discussed on a case-by-case basis before signing the residency contract. Thus at your arrival to the center all agreed tools and supplies will be ready for you to use.

Location 

Located in the west of Hungary, on the banks of the Zala River. Close to the Slovenian, Austrian and Croatian border and only 220 kilometres (137 miles) south-west of Budapest (by road), in the city of Zalaegerszeg.
