PhotoIreland & Cow House Studios present a unique 10-day residency
coordinated by Ángel luis González, Frank Abruzzese, and Kate Strain.
A dynamic group of curators and creative practitioners have been assembled to lead a series of day long projects, discussions and critiques resulting in new works and an exhibition to be presented at Rathfarnham Castle, Dublin during PhotoIreland Festival 2016.
How to Flatten a Mountain is a residency open to emerging and mid career visual artists whose practice in whole or part, makes use of digital or analogue photographic processes. Applicants must be 20 or older and may be enrolled in third level or graduate degree programmes.
The aim of this 10 day residency is for participating artists to explore possibilities outside their core practice, work collaboratively and produce a cohesive exhibition/publication of work to be presented at PhotoIreland Festival 2016.
During the residency, the participants will take active part in a series of workshops led by guest facilitators Karl Burke, Mark Curran, Paul Gaffney, Miriam O’ Connor, and Luna Dolezal & Fiona Hallinan. As a group, you will be sharing ideas, making work, processing, printing, editing, etc., as needed, always working in collaboration. Each facilitator brings to the residency new challenges and new opportunities for your practice.
The group will take a one-day trip to Dublin, for an organised visit to selected exhibitions and to meet with curators and artists. Exploring the local area around Cow House Studios, adjacent mountains and forests will also be part of the experience.
Throughout the residency, the participants will work together with the project coordinators on all the practical and theoretical steps towards producing an exhibition/publication of work to be presented at PhotoIreland Festival 2016.
