PLACE EXPLORATION is a 5 day practice-based research residency into the depths of place at Kestle Barton, whereby place is defined as something that is constructed by a washing back and forth between the past and the future, between the self and the collective, as the shoreline is perpetually recomposed by the sea.
PLACE EXPLORATION will examine Kestle Barton through ecological and autoethnographic lenses: visiting artists will be invited to ruminate upon the idea of the self in and of a place, whereby both the self and the place are compositions of social, cultural and personal histories.
Through workshops, lectures, peer-to-peer debate, screenings and interactions with the land, artists will be invited to use the place to unpick their practice, and use their practice to unpick the place. The workshops will be lead by Dr. Bram Thomas Arnold, an artist, a pedestrian and a writer and the artist duo Davis & Jones whose specialism lies in socially engaged practice. Participants will be actively encouraged to lead workshops of their own or give short lectures on their practice...
Who is it for?
Artists and creative practitioners who are interested in notions of place, being and the self amidst socially engaged practice, for as Jean Luc Nancy put it “being is with, otherwise nothing exists”. In this sense an artist that is interested in place is intrinsically interested in being in and of that place both within and beyond notions of self and practice.
PLACE EXPLORATION is for those willing to expose their practice to a little risk, to a stepping out of the comfort zone and into liminal space between places, into the gaps between disciplines and mediums, the gaps between boundaries and divisions...
