Anna was selected for the residency in Nantes by organisationTrempolino.
Trempolino contributes to the development of the regional music industry and the emergence of new artistic practices. We seek to improve access to musical practice, artistic education, and musical creation, with particular attention to children and young people, seniors, people with disabilities, from the island of Nantes to rural areas. Trempolino likes to picture new forms of collaborations between artists and the local ecosystem – to give the artists a possibility to go beyond the role of “content supplier” and to get the “partner” role within the local development processes instead.
The artist in residence will have to determine and focus on a “micro-territory” within the Ile de Nantes in order to produce a work of art. This chosen “micro-territory” can take many forms (square, building, park, group of buildings, space, streets, districts…). It will up to the artist to define it. Particular attention will be paid to artists who have projects that encourage interaction between «sound art» and «visual arts». The artist in residence will have to propose one or several events of public interactions especially towards the specific public of the selected “micro-territory”.Socio-demographic elements as well as a cartography of the island will be provided to the artist prior to the residency.
The artist in residence will be able to benefit from :
– The Nantes School of Art facilities including technical studios: multimedia, photo, video, wood, metal, modeling/molding, print, etc. (according to the planning and in agreement with workshops coordinators).
– Trempolino facilities including rehearsal studios, a recording studio ( materials and backline lists ), and a venue/club (technical rider can be sent on demand).
Anna was invited for the residency together with the artist Andreas Zissler – as a collective ANULLA.
Collective ANULLA is a collage of media art and architecture, in our theoretical and practical work they deal with new technologies and their places as well as their footprint in the landscape. Experimental film, sound, and exhibition formats have already emerged from our collaboration; among other things, they founded the acoustic working group ANULLA (www.anul.la ).
In general, it is important for us to work in a team and dare to take a transdisciplinary approach to complex topics with heterogeneous methods and perspectives. The experiment of cooperation with artists, authors, computer scientists, social scientists, architects, mechanics, and musicians have resulted in hybrid works that are difficult to classify into disciplines.
In the focus of their teamwork is a transdisciplinary approach to a complex range of themes with heterogeneous methods and views. The experiment of cooperation with artists, authors, informants, social scientists, architects, mechanics, and musicians has a long history of working with hybrids and diverse disciplines.
In an often humorous approach, the works question our relationship to technology and allow everyday objects to become representatives and projection surfaces of elusive mechanisms and relationships.
