Rävemåla Residency Programme wants to remain open to all artistic disciplines, with the idea that art transcends an immediate definition of a specific practice and to maintain a conversation between urban and rural practises with the idea of that art shouldn’t be a city-restricted practise. Time and space has become a commodity in the city, and at the same time it is what the rural areas has a great capital of. The organizers aim to explore this relation, and experiment with the ideas of what can be created if the right setting is provided.
Life is a little bit different at the house - there's no wifi or running water and you'll need to light a fire if you're cold. On the other hand, in this experimental house, they offer residents a unique opportunity, providing the accommodation, space, solitude and materials needed to fulfil a wide range of creative disciplines.
The organizers are working to secure a sustainable future for the house and to ensure it grows year on year with everyone who steps through its doors. To achieve this, they ask all the participants to leave something behind from their practise on site. This could be something big or small; tangible or abstract. They also ask for a documentation of the artists' process and/or work at the house in a presentable form for publication, or web.
The five bedroom house is approximately 140m2 sitting on 3700m2 of land. There is electricity throughout, fireplaces for heating and a working well. There's no WiFi or running water though, and the artists are invited to go back to basics with their artistic practices during their time in residence. Bicycles enable local transportation but aside from that, residents are relatively alone in their surroundings and live independently of conventional means. It's total freedom.
Artists are invited to adapt their practise to the conditions of the house, and use the surroundings as an art environment.
Rävemåla is a small village located 40 km away from Kalmar in southern Sweden. The RRP house can be found on the outer fringes of the village, surrounded by farmland, pastoral simplicity and space. The immediate environment is one of rural solitude and stillness, perfect for those wishing to escape into the wild and work without distraction.
