Call for proposals for Artist Residency

As part of flora Oriel Davies is inviting artists working across any medium from Wales and further afield to apply for a residency taking place at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre  from 16 January – 12 March 2016.

We are looking for an artist with an established practice and a demonstrable practice profile who has specific interest or proposal in relation to the subject and context of the flora exhibition project. From common weeds to exotic cultivars, flowers have been deeply embedded in our lives throughout history, and not least as a powerful inspiration to artists. With the flower at its core, this project comprises a touring exhibition of nine artists work, new commissions and two residencies. Together these offer diverse interpretations of flowers as powerful commentators on cultural, historical, geographic, social and scientific ideas today.

The artist will be selected on the basis of the originality of their approach to the residency opportunity, interest in the venue and the overall project, and their wish to extend their practice in this context.

WHEN: 16 January –13 February (Residency) and 13 February – 12 March (Exhibition / presentation)

FEE: £6,000 (to include artist fees, production costs and all expenses)

DEADLINE: Midnight Friday 25 September 2015. You will hear by Thursday 8 October 2015 if you have been selected for interview (no feedback can be given for unsuccessful applicants)
