Description of the residency programme:
Two European artists will be guests of the Vovousa Festival Residency in the village for a month. The only restriction will be that they must be lens-based artists and the material they produce must be related to their stay in the area.
A chance will be given to present: Individual work in any form each resident prefers (screening, exhibition, talk). During the festival, their work during the hosting period will be exhibited or screened.
The residency, a grey stone and comfortable house, features 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large and common rooms (featuring fireplace and views of the surrounding mountains), terraces and a large kitchen. Cooking and cleaning the house during the stay is collective.
The residency is held at a gray stone traditional house in Vovousa village. The surrounding mountains, villages and distant city, coupled with a vast expanse of sky, stars, and ever-changing mountain vistas, afford the residents amble space and opportunity for creative work.
