Land404

Land404

Description 

Land404 is a platform founded by artists Christopher Landin and Simone Ærsøe. It is based on a rural farm by the coast of Blekinge, Sweden. From it, the organizers run a closely curated artist-in-residence program and also facilitate workshops and exhibitions. At the base of their operations is a commitment to the local community and the specific environment.

During 4 weeks a small group of international artists are invited to build an exhibition together on a nearby cape. Working with the themes of how we interact with nature and our relationship to rural landscapes in an otherwise urbanized culture. 
Land404 is located in rural farm land and although there are many people dedicated to the area there are still real concerns about depopulation and lack of infrastructure. As is the case in similar areas all over the world. The residency program is run from the home of the organizers and it is really important that participating artists are interested in living collectively and take responsibility for the wellbeing of the group. If the artists are interested in social practice, holding workshops, performances and the likes the organizers will provide support for that as well.
