The Mothership: artist residencies in rural Dorset 2019

[email protected]

Deadline Friday 20 December 2019

The Mothership project, which emerged in 2016 in rural Dorset from the cosmic skies of rural loneliness juxtaposed with the contained space of the domestic sphere, is an invitation for the chance encounters of the urban art world to occur in this unlikely location, a house at the edge of a wood. The Mothership is an offering of time and space for artists without pressure to produce anything particular. This is a social art project, an experiment in autonomy and scale, exploring the relationship between host and guest and the exchange that may occur. This is an unpaid residency opportunity and a fee is charged to cover overheads.
