The Union is offering an artist-in-residence program “Hjemmefra/low-residency” for Norway-based visual artists working or wanting to stop working in various creative fields to stay at home and to engage in non-creation, non-production, non-thematic and non-research residency activities. The residency will offer an intimate space for reflection at the intersection of art and life practices.
The online initiative is a two-month remote and non-presential residency program for five visual artists, to work as artists in residence from their own home. This low-residency format aims to run along with the artist’s life as it is; no relocation, no change of job, family responsibilities remain almost intact, and community involvement becomes part of the household fabric. The residency will connect participants with relevant art agents from Norway and abroad through peer-to-peer sessions, and it will provide access to an online program for sharing and exchanging ideas and processes.
