CCA ŁAŹNIA 2 Residence Programme 2014 announces open-call for 2 Artists

In 2014 CCA ŁAŹNIA would like to follow last year’s model and invite 2 artists whose artistic practice will focus on the context of Gdansk, and/or its district New Port. We are looking for artists who with the help of contemporary art practices undertake the discussion around places perceived in a certain, stereotype way. Artist is encouraged to reach out to the spaces in-between, out of the daily routine.

Currently New Port district is undergoing the process of revitalization including all its negative and positive aspects. We are therefore looking for works socially engaged and developed from a critical point of view. The aspect of reaching out to new audiences plays an important factor.

The entire 3rd floor of the newly rebuilt former bathhouse building in New Port district of Gdańsk is dedicated to artists. The building consists also of a cinema, library and workshop space, that can be all used by the artists according to their needs. The living accommodation provides potential for many types of Art based activities to take place such as discussions, film screenings and social events. Artists Residency shall culminate in a form of a final work in the shape chosen by the artist.

Artists Residency is organised in 2 stages:
2 weeks research visit + 2 months residency that follows

CCA ŁAŹNIA 2 will offer:
– a space to live and work
– artistic fee inclusive of travel allowance, costs of living, insurance: 2000 PLN/artist for the 2 weeks long research trip

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot.

These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
