AiNIN ONLINE RESIDENCY PROGRAMME MARCH 2021
Artists in Nature International Network
Dynamic natural connections
Since 1999, AiNIN have been supporting artists and event organisers who create and engage in site-specific work in the environment across a broad range of disciplines. Due to COVID19, the international mobility of artists is restrained and we are all facing major changes in our lives and way of working. AiNIN wanted to give support to artists by sharing culture and creativity, bringing us closer even at a distance.
This Online Residency; Dynamic Natural Connections was long term AiNIN member Elena Redaelli’s idea and she proposed the project to the AiNIN Bureau and Project managed the whole process with the help of various bureau members.
During November 2020 we set up an Open Call for proposals for a virtual residency program on the theme of “Dynamic natural connections” to celebrate the germination of ideas, continual growth and our inherent capacity for transformation and renewal. We looked for generative, process-based art and research projects, rooted in nature as an open and evolving concept. We encouraged curiosity, exploration even from confined spaces and enhance connectivity among the participants.
The programme was open to AiNIN members and everyone willing to join our association and it is curated to give artists the opportunity to present their works to a new audience through AiNIN social media channels, and networks.
During the three weeks of the residency, artists were invited to share their progress weekly with the curatorial team and through our social media Facebook and Instagram.
A public presentation was held in March 2021
