ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ / Kinono Tinos Art Gathering

info@kinono.gr
Name of Residency: Four (plus one) elements

The “Four (plus one ) Elements” project through the lens of transnational mobility and occasioned by the diverse cultural and natural landscape of Tinos, adds the element of time to the four natural elements (earth, water, air and fire,) referencing both the alternation of the seasons and human intervention on the natural landscape.  “ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ” Tinos Art Gathering through the “Four (plus one ) ELements” residency, wishes to explore and reinvent the relationships between the material “environments” of the island, the various manifestations of locality, the participants as individuals and the contemporary interdisciplinary practice in visual arts, research, the humanities and new means of expression through place and time. This process aims through this versatile involvement, to the creation of original artistic productions of all disciplines, research and educational activities, to enhance and diversify the process of collaboration between the local community  and at the same time to focus on the locality as an environment as a population and as a process.

Four Open Calls will be made, one for each element with four distinct deadlines: Fire-24 November 2019, Water-15 February 2020, Air-15 June 2020, Earth- 15 August 2020. The duration of each residency is 15 days. Fire:18-31 January 2020, Water:18-30 April 2020, Air:18-31 August 2020, Earth:18-31 October 2020. “ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ”, will be able to select up to 50 participants per element. The works that will be created by the residencies of each element will be presented respectively in the months: January, April, August, October 2020 throughout the totality of the natural and cultural landscape of the island. Priority will be given to collaboration between participants and/or the involvement of local organizations and communities. The call is open to all with no age limit or restriction in art or science discipline.
