WORKSHOP DIRECTOR: Professor Stuart Frost (www.stuartianfrost.com), Department of Art and Design Education, Telemark University College, Notodden, Norway.
The participants will live and work together in an Arts Village in a rural township for knowledge sharing and cross-fertilization of skills over the two-week period. By land art (or earthworks, environmental art) we imply:
(1) Works created with materials from the environment involving air, water, earth, stone, and wood, or
(2) Site-specific installation (with natural or industrial materials) within a landscape to create an aesthetic experience. Thus, the theme is open; but permanency of work is encouraged, ephemeral would be only if it is the most appropriate means to communicating the idea. The realized work may become a part of the Arts Village or sited in a public space in nearby village.
Organizers will provide accommodation and food; an accepted applicant will contribute participation fee of $100 / €70 toward food. The international participant is responsible for own travel costs and proposed project. We suggest that participants apply for travel grants through their national art councils or other sources. To apply, send CV, statement/sketch of your proposed work, and a sample of your existing work to email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions will be reviewed until space is filled. For details on our projects go to www.nkafoundation.org.
