Art diStrict 2
Description: Art diStrict welcomes artists, architects, urban researchers and creative people to participate in a renovation of an empty house with a garden, located in the forthcoming cultural district of the old city of Kranj. The camp will take place as a part of art festival »Rock, paper, scissors« organized by Layer House, the centre of art and culture, as well as an artist-in-residency center. The main objective of the camp is to reuse an empty house with a garden in Kranj and make a new and appealing art intervention that will break ground for young local artists to continue the work and make something new of it. The aim of the camp is to address community-based exhibition, production, and social spaces, as well as to question (and turn around) the nature of gallery art and urban art.
Type of Work: Work will consist of work organization, artistic intervention, arranging the garden next to the house, video and photo documentation, research, discuss the creative potentials of the space, preparation of exhibition.
Study Theme: The camp aims to address the interaction of the volunteers with the city. They will get to know the touristic sights and cultural heritage of the city, the history and the reasons why the house is empty, and make their own stories which will be the content of the urban intervention. It strives to encourage participants to build their own relationships with the city and inhabitants.
Accommodation: Painters’s house - today a cultural centre with exhibition grounds and artist-in-residency centre will host the volunteers. They will be organised two rooms with 10 beds, 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen. The volunteers will prepare food by themselves.
