Inside Out Residency in Varberg Municipality and Laholm Municipality

Between the Rains

Inside Out Residency in Varberg Municipality and Laholm Municipality (Sweden)

Art Inside Out invites you to an artistic residency where “ecological literacy” is used as point of departure in a movement through two similar ecological conditions: (1) the meeting between the sea north of city of Varberg and the river Viskan and (2) the earthy landscape surrounding the city of Laholm.

Between the rains wishes to evoke other modes to understand and relate to ecology and ecological systems. Art Inside Out is looking for artistic practices that are nurtured by the many interdisciplinary questions about ethics, politics and knowledge which escort such a shift. Artistry that are at the same time interested in working within a decentralisation of human activities and searching for equal alliances between species where coexistence, mutual learning and carefully managed relationships are brought in to focus and replacing an endless quest for surplus and dominance.

Art Inside Out is inviting four artists to a 12-week residency in 2022.
The residency schedule is as follows: research (May 30–June 17), production & presentation (August 29–October 30).

Each accepted artist will receive equivalent to 138 000 SEK (F-taxable, exclusive VAT, paid by invoice) for a 12 week long residency, and a production budget of 20 000 SEK. The artist is responsible for paying applicable taxes in their home country. Art Inside Out covers associated costs such as travel, housing, workspaces and process management.

Two artists will primarily be situated in Varberg, and two in Laholm. The artists will have the opportunity to work independently and together. The residency will conclude with public presentations of the artistic processes in Varberg and Laholm and other locations in Halland and Sweden. Public meetings will be held regularly throughout the residency.
