Urban Interventions: Artistic Perspectives (UIAP)



Residency Program

UIAP is a one-off project to be realized in 2009 for enabling visual artists from Turkey to attend a residency program in Linz, Austria, from July to September, 2009, and again from October to December, 2009. The program will be reciprocated in 2010 in Istanbul.

Goal:
The project “Urban Interventions” aims at inviting artists from Europe to explore various urban landscapes in different cities. It creates, within the framework of artist residency programs and activities, a platform for interaction and exchange both on a local level, as well as within a broader, inter-regional spectrum.

The project will include artists from 5 countries from Europe (Liverpool-UK, Dortmund-GE, Tallinn-EE, Istanbul-TR, And Linz-AT), developing urban art projects within the span of 3 to 6 month residencies at one of the project partner cities.

Selection Process:
UIAP Applications will be reviewed by a committee of five professionals, including but not limited to curators, who have experience in international residencies. There will be one representative from Platform Garanti.

Selection Criteria:
Artists who have a demonstrable interest in public spaces, urban initiatives and interventions, as well as mobilization of artistic practices and exchanges.

Umutsuz Boşluk isimli sergi başlığı; kötümser bir ruh halini vurgulamasının aksine gücünü umuttan almakta. Bu umut sanatçının credosu (amentüsü) anlamında vurgulanan umutsuzlukla yüzleşme yeteneğidir. Denebilir ki sanatçılar bir anlamda bu kavrayışı ortaya koyarlar. Sanatçı “boşluğu” dönüştürememeyi, bunaltıyı, çöküşü ya da tam tersi olarak bunun ifade edilemezliğini dillendirendi…

An ecopoem might play with slippages, but the play will lead to further connections.

Ecopoetry does share a space with science. One of the concerns of ecopoetry is non-human nature (it shares this concern with the critical apparatus it borrows from, ecocriticism). It certainly shares that concern with most of the world’s history of poetry: How can we connect with non-human nature that seems so much more, so much larger than ourselves? How can we understand it?
