Dos Mares encourages mobility and visibility of artists through international residencies programs. Artists are welcomed in France, Marseille and Paris for a period period of time between 1 and 3 months. These residences focus on art research and not production, the goal is to requestion artistic problematics, processes, approaches, plastic vocabulary, rethink projects, in a stimulating framework, conducive to encounters and discussions.
Residents at Dos Mares are from all regions of the world with the particularity to be in contact, in their life or work, with a territory of strong population density or living in a big metropolis. An artists network is simultaneously created, allowing residents to continue building its artistic and social connections.
During these residences the artist is accompanied regularly by one or more speakers in order to re-interrogate its practice, to deepen into semantic analyses of its artistic approach, to find new clues of work to broaden its scope.
Through a regular work of reflection, activated with discussions, often informal, the invited artist will be able to have a break in its artistic production, to rethink the articulation of the concepts which feed its plastic proposals.
It is not about producing a particular work or exhibitions but to confront its whole past work and to extract of it potentialities. A part of the residency work will be also dedicated to the manufacturing of proposal attempts, experiments tending to extent research axes, to validate them, to correct them or to restate them.
