BLANK Residency at Craveiral
5 – 26 January 2021
We are pleased to announce the five selected participants of our first artist in residence programme:
Alice Morey, Dennis Buck, Gonçalo Sena, Marlene Huissoud and Violetta Ehnsperg.
BLANK Residency at Craveiral Farmhouse is taking place from January 5 – 26, 2021 in São Teotónio, Portugal, organised by Carla Benzing and Nadine Cordial.
Five artists are invited to live and work on the Portuguese countryside for three weeks to start the New Year free from distraction. In these uncertain times of a global pandemic the residency shall provide space for selfcare, reflection and time for developing new work in the framework of the surrounding nature and in exchange with other creatives in a small community.
Craveiral Farmhouse provides all artists with their own self-catered apartments, a studio space, material, as well as the possibility to work outdoors. In order to keep everyone safe during the stay, necessary precautions prior to arrival will be taken, as well as a strict following of the usual codes of conduct in relation to corona during the residency.
BLANK Residency programme offers artists accommodation and studio space in changing locations. With the aim of further developing their practice, the artists are provided with a platform to collectively explore contemporary issues and experiment with addressing them. The challenge of working in an unknown, perhaps unusual space opens up possibilities and at the same time and enables the artists to approach their working process differently. A programme of talks, activities as well as shared dinners promotes interaction and collaboration between the residents.
