Domaine du Tournefou and Camille Claudel museum

Domaine du Tournefou and Camille Claudel museum

This residence call is aimed at a video artist who will have to propose a work of original creation associating contemporary creation with XIXth and XXth century art history. The artist will have to highlight the fields of creation and draw a parallel between yesterday's and today's artists, between the museum's collections and contemporary artistic creation. The residence project is borne by the Camille Claudel museum of Nogent-sur-Seine, dedicated to XIXth and beginning XXth century sculpture and to Camille Claudel's work of art, as well as by the Domaine du Tournefou in Palis, an artistic center and a place of residence. Located 30 km away from one another, both institutions live at different paces, which will be an integral part of this residence project, and - why not ? - may also be part of the artist's questioning.

The aim of the residence project will be to conduct a work of original creation and associate the public to it, by means of following presentations:

  • a meeting open to the public, where the artist-in-residence will present his/her work in progress at Domaine du Tournefou and/or at Camille Claudel museum;
  • a meeting and presentation of realised work for the agents and partners of Camille Claudel museum;
  • two mediation workshops for a school public at Domaine du Tournefou and Camille Claudel museum;
  • an end-of-residence final work presentation at Camille Claudel museum.

Conditions for participation:

  • Stay in residence from October 1st to November 30, 2019.
  • Full board accommodation at Domaine du Tournefou : creation 35m² studio and independant apartment - or individual room, with kitchen to be shared with another resident.
  • Residence grant: 2000 € (including transfer of rights and transport fees from Domaine du Tournefou to Camille Claudel museum).
  • Material fees and others: 500 €, taken in charge by Domaine du Tournefou.
  • If the artist does not have a vehicle, there are possibilities to organise care-pooling with people from Domaine du Tournefou. Other means of transportation are to be covered artist-in-residence.
