AiR - RESIDENCY PROGRAMS
Circulating AiR (2014-16) pilot project consisting of an international artist-in-residence program that traverses the county of Hordaland on the west coast of Norway. Earlier, 3,14 arranged art shows that toured around the region, and as this practice faded out, the institution focused on rethinking new strategies in order to revitalize its engagement with the county. Each residency program lasts for a period of six to eight weeks, every single round being arranged in a new municipality.
By direct invitation, 3,14 curated profiled international artists inclined to work site-specifically. The program covered all expenses and provided a working fee as well as a production budget. The artists committed to developing site-related works during their stay, establishing a dialogue with the hosting community in various ways, i.e. by taking into account historical, geographical, contextual, contemporary and traditional aspects that have formed it. All projects were publically shown in their respective hosting communities and the artists also provided a lecture in a local school.
Program funded by Hordaland Cultural Development Program (KUP), Hordaland county.
