ARTIST RESIDENCY OPEN CALL: BORDERS

Xarkis Festival 2019 will take place in a village in Cyprus, from the 16th until the 18th of August,  which will include an Artists’ Residency program starting from the 11th of August.

Over a period of five days, a group of selected artists will be invited to work together with our team and the local community, to prepare creative works that will shape the three day Festival.

In Xarkis’ 2018 Artists’ Residency program and Festival edition, we focused on the themes of “bottom-up heritage”, “symbiosis” and “hybridity”. Starting from these ideas in combination with the meaning of the word Xarkis, which implies to start all over again and to reset our defaults, for this year’s Residency and Festival we are looking for participations which question, disrupt and re-evaluate the theme of Borders.

 

In all languages the description of the word ‘borders’ is used to communicate boundaries between social groups. However, in different geographical and temporal contexts, their meanings and interpretations may vary.

Borders carry both physical and symbolic connotations. They can have a distinct material presence, or where visually indistinct they may function to convey symbols of the physical representation of history. In a rising global state system, divided boundaries or spatial borders, indicate the legal lines that dissect areas of authority. (Anderson & O’Dowd, 1999).

“Borders are filters with highly variable degrees of permeability or porosity; and border regions are peripheries of infiltration, transition or separation, defences for the supposed purity of the centre….Borders look inwards and outwards: they simultaneously unify and divide, include and exclude. They are coercive, disabling and limiting, including and excluding many people against their will; but they are also benign and enabling, providing the basis for security, dominant forms of identity and conventional representative democracy. Prison or refuge, they can facilitate oppression or provide an escape from it.” (Anderson, O’Dowd, 1999).

As Anderson and O’Dowd note, a closer examination of borders proves that they are far from simple. They are zones of entry and boundaries to the ‘outside world’, securing for some and confining for others. They represent opportunities and / or insecurities, points of contact and / or struggle, of collaboration and / or antagonism, of contradictory identities and / or the combative declaration of difference.

In the spirit of these ideas, we invite proposals which inspire an active process of meaning-making around the topic of Borders, leading to dynamic and transformative works between people from a range of disciplinary, professional, educational and generational backgrounds. Xarkis invites residents to engage with the local community of the selected village and create site-specific works that are informed by the site in which we will be working in. They are asked to unravel the boundaries of borders and to synthesize findings with their own lived experiences, their communities’ standpoint and / worldviews, in ways that challenge borders as we know them.

*Considering that the checkpoints in Cyprus form a unique case study, and could be looked through the prism of borders, it is important to note that the topic has often been saturated and exoticised by different audiences. In this light, we encourage participants to explore this field beyond the limitations of the political geography discourse and move outside their disciplinary boundaries, to include sociological, historical, international  and cultural influences pertaining to borders.

Keywords: Borders as institutions, borders in relationships. Borders driven by gender, as local, regional, national, transnational divides, ethnic, racial, professional and social divisions. The heritage of Borders. Borders being crossed physically or figuratively. Borders as points of contact vs borders as barriers to movement and communication. Geopolitical narratives. Border tourism, border as exploitation. Border as separation and as an act of coming together. Cross-border cooperation. Mapping borders. The border and the borderless. Nations controlling borders, borders as security, hyper-security of borders, surveillance. Fluid, obscure borders, borders as imprisonment, border-torn citizens. Mobile borders, partitioning through borders, border protection, borders in popular culture and mass media, borders forming relations of power. Daily life practises in borders, living in and around borders. Transitional zones of borders. Territorial borders, bordering capabilities, border phobia, barrier usage of borders, border conflict, Story sharing of borders, Us and them, binary views of borders, extending boundaries of borders.

BACKGROUNDS

Open Call for Exhibition in France: Entre Chien et Loup

Open Call for Exhibition

The Between : Entre Chien et Loup

 

“Entre chien et loup” is a multi-layered French expression used to describe a specific time of day just before the night when the light is so dim you can't distinguish between a dog and a wolf, the time just after sunset and before the darkness of night. We are in the world of twilight, dusk, the witching hour, the mysterious realm of the gloaming. It is the transitional time between night and day, when one’s eyes play tricks, when what seems may not be what is. There is a sense of danger and of uncertainty, of transition. The light is almost tangibly grainy, and changing quickly. Shadows deepen. The known world slips away.

 

Conceptually we are interested in the liminality expressed by the phrase.   

On the most essential level, it is about light and chiaroscuro, about a threshold between states. By extension, the dissolution of the boundary between the familiar and the unknown, danger and safety, the domestic and the wild, the uncertain, highly charged threshold between hope and fear, beauty and terror. The terrain encompasses notions of woman as both dangerous and endangered, the tropes of fairy tales, the Middle Ages, the looming new Dark Ages, the forest as symbolic zone of shifting realities, the wolf as representative of the dangerous wild, magic, getting lost, the unknowability of the dream state. 

 

Accepted work will be shown for one year. All mediums will be considered, including not only 2D and 3D visual art, but installations, immersive work, writing, music and performance.

Meed3: When Photography Ruled the Street

mportant Dates:

Finalist Exhibition Dates: 07/12/19 – 08/02/19

Exhibition Opening 07/12/19

Entry Deadline: 06/22/19

 

Gallery19 announces a call for entries for our Third annual juried competition, Meed3: When Photography Ruled the Streets. Photographers at all experience levels are invited to submit work.  Artists selected as finalists will have their work exhibited (and available for purchase*) at Gallery19 for the month of July 2019. ** As competition judge, Ahmed Ozsever, artist and educator, will review all entries, select finalists, and announce the winner at an opening reception at Gallery19, on July 12th, 2019.

 

THEME: When Photography Ruled the Streets

Gallery19 and juror Ahmed Ozever delve into the ever-changing world of street photography. There is no clear definition of street photography, but for this competition we will define street photography as the preservation of special moments of our time, in which artists make accessible to future generations.  These images are a documentation of who we are and where we have been.  Street photography fully immerses the viewer into a different time and experience.  Our hope is that artists of all levels will submit work that will tell stories like street photographers Vivian Maier and William Eggleston.

The winner of Gallery19 Meed3 will receive a solo show at Gallery19 for the month of August 2020.  The winner will also have a one-year contract with Gallery19, which includes exposure on the gallery’s website, ongoing multi-media, promotion, including social media, participation in gallery programming (openings, events, artist talks, etc.), and direct sales efforts.  In addition, Ahmed Ozsever will mentor the winner for a full year August 2019 through August 2020, by reviewing and evaluating work product, and assisting in development of a gallery-ready exhibition, all culminating in a solo exhibition at Gallery19.

 

JUDGE:

We are honored to have Ahmed Ozsever preside over the 2019-2020 Gallery19 Meed3 competition. Ahmed Ozsever is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago. He works in installation and embraces architectural anomalies, as well as the hidden histories of a given location and exhibition space. His background in photography informs his recurring interest in the process, and limitations of photographic seeing. Ahmed’s work explores the articulation and perception of constructed temporalities, mediated experiences of land(scape), and the peculiar human traces inscribed in quotidian spaces. Ahmed earned his BFA in Photography from Herron School of Art at IU Indianapolis, and received his MFA from Cornell University.

New Art Magazine

Yet another art magazine is about to be launched. Nobody has waited for this, however, we are keen to support Emerging and Raising Artists from around the world. And isn’t there always room for another inspirational collection of visual soul food.

 

We aim to include features and interviews with artists, art collectors and art curators to give a full picture and insight into the art world.

 

In the true spirit of Blue Bee, it will be an online magazine which will be printed by demand. We searched thoroughly for the perfect supplier – the paper, binding and colour saturation needed to satisfy our fastidious editorial team. We only put our name on it, if it’s the best quality available.

 

The first edition of BLUE BEE magazine is about to launch in August 2019 alongside our next Pop Up Art Exhibition in Austria. We are currently looking for artists who want to get featured in the magazine.

 

Our coffee table style magazine will feature around 100 pages. Although Blue Bee Gallery is specialised in limited edition prints, we are open for all facets of the visual art spectrum.

In contrary to other art magazines, which invite to participation, we are editorially led and aim to have at least 70-80% editorial pages with artwork reviews and interviews. If we ask you for participation, we don’t expect any payments, but won’t give any promises neither.

Our editorial team will review all applications and reach out to the most striking ones for further discussions. This may take some time because we consider each submission carefully and discuss thoroughly the potential.

 

Please don’t be upset if we haven’t selected you for this issue but encourage you to try it with different artworks for a future edition.

 

Definitely, want to be featured in the next issue? There are paid options available, of course. Either in the form of a promotion or advertising. 

 

If you want to support our launch with a pre-order of the printed version? RSP will be £21 per magazine, but as pre-order, you will get the Winter edition free of charge. This means you will get 241.  

 

Participation deadline for this magazine: 30th June  2019
