VACANT ZONE is an online artist residency project, devised in November 2019.
A virtual space without precise limits, waiting to be inhabited or to take form; a potential world that becomes something different each time.
During a four months residency, two participants (artists, scientists, writers, researches) - chosen or invited - share the vacant zone experience: being there, dialoguing, reflecting and in the end, supported at a technical level by a specialized team, realizing the form and the shape that the project will take from that moment until the next inhabitance.
Vacant Zone has no predetermined meanings, and it is both global and local, immaterial and concrete, current and historical; it is a process: pure subjective possibility to build and to share.
The idea was about as reflection on the vitality and importance of the phenomenon of artistic residencies in the contemporary art scene; to date very few projects have experienced the virtuality of space and the potential of web technologies, in this case the aim is to create dialogues and relationships between artists of various backgrounds and culture.
Candidates can apply from 1 April to 31 May 2020.
